Their cart can be seen accelerating around the intersection as it enters the left-hand lane.
Speeding around the busy roundabout, the duo vanishes from the screen and reappear some moments later after having completed a full circle.
They then get off the intersection from the same point where they emerged for the first time.
The clip ends at the point where the teens cover their faces as they get close to the camera before speeding off. Both of them were dressed in all black.
43-year-old Darran Ward, who witnessed the entire incident, said: ‘I was on my way to work to work with the dogs when I heard this pretty interesting noise.
‘I’m a keen motorbike enthusiast so I instinctively got my phone out when I heard it. Then low and behold I saw this go-kart zip through the traffic by these two teenagers.
‘I honestly just found it hilarious. It’s the most Newport thing I have seen in a long time. It’s getting more Mad Max post-apocalyptic by the day.
‘I didn’t film it with the intention of getting anyone in trouble. They were actually quite good. I think they should take it up competitively.’
The go-kart is now in the custody of the police.
Gwent Police Area Support Unit Sergeant, Shane Draper, said they are appealing with the public for any information that might be helpful in tracking down the teenagers.
Draper said: ‘I’d encourage anyone that witnessed or witnesses this type of behavior on the road to contact the police immediately.
‘Not only is the driver putting their own lives at risk, they are also putting the lives at risk of other innocent, motorists using the road.
‘This is reckless behavior of the driver – illegal driving on our roads will not be tolerated.
‘There are a number of offenses committed here, including: dangerous driving and driving with no insurance and we will be taking this seriously and we will be investigating.
‘The consequences to this sort of behavior could be devastating and I’m surprised that no one was injured.’
