Bambino 5 - 9 yrs

Kart racing organized under the Motorsport South Africa umbrella is divided into specific age, weight and speed categories to suit youngsters as they grow. This ensures a safe and exciting progression from 5 years onwards.

Internationally most countries choose this Italian manufactured 50cc Comer powered Top Kart which is ideally sized for 5 to 9 – year old super heros! This is the first step on the ladder to F1 and a path followed by most racers from Ayton Senna to Lewis Hamilton. Aptly named “Bambino Class” to follow the international trend.

The lightweight kart has a wheelbase of 77cm which fits the 5 to 9-year olds perfectly without modifications or adaptations required. A minimum weight of 70 kg (of kart and driver as raced) and just less than 3 bhp this kart provides the ideal balance between performance and safety.

These were once known as “Baby karts” or “Cadets” in South Africa but they developed a reputation as being a specialist tuner’s class. The engine spec was however completely revised in 2017 resulting in a user-friendly and very economical-to-run package. Engines will be sealed by authorised service centres in 2019 to ensure a high standard of preparation and fair play.

Very reliable, easy to run and low-cost formula using durable Mojo C2 tyres – renowned for long life and consistent performance.

A new complete, ready to race kart including VAT costs R 35 000. Used karts start from R 5 000.

Club, Regional and National racing is available countrywide, and Bambino will feature on the 2019 SARMC Karting National Championship Series.
