Video: 1990s Isle of Man karting is the most terrifying thing ever

A little bit of Isle of Man madness, this video demonstrates what appears to be a three-pedal Formula Kart racing a pack of Superkarts sometime in the 1990s. The rate of speed at which decision making has to be made by the driver, combined with the extremely high cost of failure, makes this one of the most gripping onboard videos we’ve ever seen!
