In the approach to the design of a kart circuit, usually the plot where it stands it is fixed, so the proposed alternatives usually have the same costs of implementation. Therefore, in this article it has created a sporty driving factor which will be the acceleration diagram area per unit length, which allows you to choose the design of a circuit that offers the driver greater enjoyment of the sport. For this it has been done testing in an actual circuit, thereby obtaining the values ​​of velocity and acceleration. These values ​​have extrapolated based on the radii of curvatures presented for different layout alternatives raised, obtained for each coefficient sporty driving, which will serve to compare and determine the most optimal route from the point of view of the driver.
