2 Stroke Karting is considered by many as the ‘pinnacle’ of karting.  With race meetings all over the UK, Europe and the world as a whole.  

From Bambino to Senior there are lots of different classes, chassis, engines that can be used to suit your budget and skills.  For many it is a minefield as to where to start if you are new to the sport.

MSA meetings are extremely tight on regulations.  You will need a MSA licence to compete at this level.  Your equipment and race wear will need to meet MSA standards.  The competition is very high at this level.  MSA meetings can be very costly to meet other competitors standards – however, if you want to be the best, this is where you need to be.

None MSA racing is becoming more popular, as your equipment and race wear do not have to meet the high MSA regulations.  No licence is needed to race at these meetings.  This however is not to say that safety is forgotten as safety is paramount.  The none MSA meetings still meet very high standards.  Often, drivers choose to race in the none MSA meetings as the grids are good, you get good track time and it is a more cost effective way to enjoy the sport.

From the age of 5, you can race a go-kart at None MSA level and compete at MSA level from 6 years of age.  This class is called Bambino. Engines available are C35 and C50.
