Instantiation: The new keyword is a Java operator that creates the object. Initialization: The new operator is followed by a call to a constructor, which initializes the new object.

The GoKart class was created in the previous step, and this step is asking you to create a new instance of the GoKart class. Something like:

GoKart goKart = ...

You don't need to define the GoKart class again.
