THE CHAMPIONSHIP EXPLAINED
Kart racing organized under the MSA umbrella is divided into specific age, weight and speed categories to suit youngsters as they grow. This ensures a safe and exiting progression from 5 years onwards – Micro Max is the second step on the ladder.
Micro Max is a step up from the Bambino class or ideal to start karting for larger 7-year olds and can be competed in until the end of the year in which you turn 11.
Using a de-tuned ROTAX 125 Junior Max engine @ 8 bhp and fitted to a 95cm “mini chassis” – designed for 7 to 13-year-old kids – this provides an easy to drive, easy to run and low running cost formula. Various makes of chassis are available in SA.
The winner of the Micro Max class will be invited to compete at the ROTAX Max Challenge Grand Finals in 2022. The prize includes the use of brand-new kart and engine drawn by raffle this ensures the fairest racing in karting. All tyres dry and wet, fuel, oil, tools, trolley, etc. are covered by this prestigious invitation.
The Rotax karting formula provides for a very easy and low-cost upgrade from Micro Max to Mini Max class when your driver is either too old or too heavy to continue in Micro Max.

A new complete race-ready kart costs including VAT R 95 000 and used karts are available from R 35 000. (Beware of buying outdated equipment with a view to renovating it – rather spend more and buy race competitive stuff).
