Kart Motorsports Question

Hey guys I need help finding out more information on this type of racing which I can't remember the name of. A few years ago I stumbled upon this grassroots type of kart racing that involves two people.

Essentially, it was a small kart where there is one driver controlling the steering, and a second person hangs on the rear of the vehicle and leans from side to side to control the balance/center of gravity of the vehicle. They coordinate and shift their weight when it comes through corners in the track.

What type of kart racing/motorsports is this called? Thanks in advance.

Side car racing as posted above. It's a motorbike with a side car.




They made a movie about it too. Saw it on TV before. It's pretty good.
