if ya buy a good kart maybe spend about 1000-1500 euro ya mite get something handy, entries arent expensive, tyres will last a while but its like any thing once ya start spending its impossible to stop, if he is aged between 8-12 its the cadets which is great to watch all 60cc karts easy and cheap to run 12-16 its 100cc which is a bit faster i think now the rotax max is the class for them if ya check it out with motorsport ireland they will tell you but certainly talk to noel brennen if ya want to know anything about karting he is a former european champion
Have to say now I bought a banger for £100 when I was 12 and wrecked about my Grandads farm which had about a mile of lane, I learnt eveything on it, Oversteer, understeer, left foot braking, how to go through fences backwards, you know what best thing I ever done.
