Default Welding and frame

Planning to start my kart build, and I finished drawing out my frame.
Here it is:

(Sorry, for some reason I cant upload a picture)
It is going to be approx. 66 inches long and 45 wide (from the outer corners of each wheel.) With 1x 1 11ga square steel tubing, will this frame be ridged enough to hold itself and (at most) maybe an additional 220lbs (including driver)? If not, what changes can I make to add rigidity? Does anybody have any tips on welding the tubing?
