Kart racing or Karting is a variant of open-wheeler motor sport with simple, small four-wheeled vehicles called karts or go-karts. 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.
Cadet karts can be raced from the age of 8 years and is powered by a 50cc comer engine, the karts run on slick or wet tyres and are capapble of over 50mph.
Junior TKM can be driven from the age of 12 years and is powered by a 100cc piston port TKM BT82 engine, with a carborettor restrictor, it is direct drive and can have a clutch fitted if required. The karts use wets or slick tyres and are capable of 60mph+, there is a minimum weight limit set for this class.
TKM intermediate is as above, but the driver weight are higher and the carborettor is less restricted giving more power.
TKM extreme (Steve Miller's current class) is a 115cc TKM BT82 engine, with no restictor and is capable of 70mph+ with minimum set driver weight.
