Hello guys welcome to the first ever post on our forum and i wanted to kick it off with getting straight to the point - How much will it cost you to buy a brand new kart. I did a full video on this on our YouTube channel (you can watch it here) If you haven't done so already, subscribe! 

I am not much of a writer if i'm honest, so this post will be short but sweet, and hopefully helpful. But if you have any questions you might want to either; leave a comment down below or DM me on Instagram and i'll be happy to point you in the right direction @startingkarting. However don't expect an answer from me straight away, i work 70+ hours a week 😣 

All prices mentioned exclude VAT, exclude delivery, and will vary depending on where you get it from, you might be able to find these things for cheaper, but Im just showing you what I found online. So this should be used as a rough guide. Its clearly a lot cheaper if you buy second hand, there are some great sites for buying second hand, karting.co.uk, facebook marketplace, and other specialist facebook groups plus more. Links at the bottom of this post.

Chassis

So we’ve established what engine is suitable for your age group now we need a chassis. Back in August the annual kartmasters was in full swing at PFI. Kartmasters is the largest one-off kart race meeting in the UK with competitors from around the world. This year marked the 24th anniversary of kartmasters and I wanted to look at what the top 10 finishes in each category. (excluding Bambino & KZ)

Bambino

Wright Kart - £1540

Synergy Kart £1250

 

IAME cadet

Synergy Kart- £2,395

Tony Kart - £2,000

 

Honda cadet

Project One kart is £2350

Synergy kart is £2395

 

Mini X30, Junior Rotax, Junior X30 and Senior Rotax

These classes in 2019 Kartmasters are almost entirely dominated by the OTK group. Which is the Alonso kart, Exprit, Kosmic and Tony Kart.

As far as i'm aware these chassis get made under the same roof, but have different names logos and graphics/livery. And for these chassis it will cost you: £3050

There was just 4 chassis in the X30 and Rotax classes that was not a OTK kart. These chassis are the:

Comp Kart - £3080

A mad Croc - £2650

And an xenon £1979

Kart republic - £3332

 

KZ 

CRG- £4954

Birel - £4528

Compkart- £4501

Kart Republic- £3377
