Super-Fast Go-Kart – level 2

05-10-2021 15:00

A 26-year-old Englishman won a Guinness World Record for the fastest go-kart, as it is propelled by a jet engine and reached 180,71 kilometres per hour.

The go-kart took him 12 months to complete. The creator, Tom, said that things were catching fire or blowing up as he worked on it.

Difficult words: go-kart (a small racing car), propel (push forward), jet engine (a type of engine which people put into aeroplanes, not cars usually).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
