Cadets

From 8 to 13 years old.

IAME Cadet
Uses 60cc 2 stroke engine. This is the class used for the premier championship and is run by most clubs. The engine and carburettor adjustments need to be quite precise so having a competent parent/ mechanic is a distinct advantage. Weight limit for kart and driver is 103kg.

Honda Cadet
Uses a 4 stroke, GX160 engine which is ideal for beginners. The long life engines are very low-cost, do not have to be sealed, but have to conform to a technical specification. Honda Cadet has a national ABkC championship. Weight limit for kart and driver is 103kg.

Comer Cadet
Uses a 60cc sealed 2-stroke Comer engine so engine rebuilds have to be carried out by an approved service agent.  This was the class used for the premier championships but is becoming less popular. Most clubs, however, do still run it. The engine and carburettor adjustments need to be quite precise so having a competent parent/mechanic is a distinct advantage! Weight limit for kart and driver is 103kg.
