Hello!

How do you call the ´sport ´ or activity where people have competitions in cars? I don ´t know how to say it.
And what about ´Karting ´... what is this? how do you call this sport or activity?

Thank you!

Formula One
Motor racing
Kart racing or karting is a variant of open-wheel motor sport with small, open, four-wheeled vehicles called karts, go-karts, or gearbox/shifter karts depending on the design. They are usually raced on scaled-down circuits. Karting is commonly perceived as the stepping stone to the higher and more expensive ranks of motorsports.(wikipedia)
Hope it helps
Good night!!

Yes, car racing is the name of the sport, and the car used to race can be referred to as a racing car.
 
Karting or go karting is another type of sport, the vehicle is usually referred to as a go kart (rather than a car).

Favorite sport: racing cars  would be also okay
 
"He is a racing fan, he likes to race other cars in his race car.  Every Sunday he goes to the speedway and watches car racing."
