American company Razor has launched an electric kart that can reach 20km/h and features a bespoke Drift Bar for what it calls "hours of sideways fun". Take a look...

LONDON, England - Put your pedal to the metal! After demand from English drifting fans, big and small, Razor USA and Re:creation have launched the Crazy Cart electric go-kart in the UK.

The Crazy Cart, its distributor says, is on track to cause more than a buzz when it finally meets fans who have been counting down to its arrival.

"Ever played Super Mario kart?," the makers ask. "Same thing… in real life, without the bananas. Although, it’s up to you really. A unique ride-on featuring never-before-seen technology that became a viral sensation in 2013 on YouTube video in a drifting parody starring ‘Ken Box’."

It reportedly racked a million hits in just a few days.  "Since then," the company says, "thrill-seeking kids and grown-ups alike have been begging the manufacturer to make it available for riders in the UK."

It has two driving modes – kart and Crazy Cart – allowing the rider to choose on the move. The Crazy Cart can drive forward, reverse, sideways, diagonally and everything in between. One swift move of the Drift Bar sends the cart spinning.


The Crazy Cart was created by Ali Kermani, a long-time Razor employee who went on to develop the kart during his graduate studies. Kermani, along with the development team at Razor USA, worked on the Crazy Cart for nine years until it hit stores in the US, Canada and Australia in 2013.

The Crazy Cart has a top speed of 20km/h and 360-degree steering for tight turns. Up to 40 minutes of fun can be had on a single charge - charger included in the price, which is the equivalent of R9000 in England. Maximum rider's weight 63kg.
