The class is open to anyone 16 years and over, however, drivers may be allowed to compete in class in 16th year license permitting. The class is for the IAME X30 engine. It is a 2 stroke engine supplied with electric starter, 16,000 rev limit and centrifugal clutch. The class runs with a high grip tyre.

Senior TKM 4 Stroke
This class uses the TKM K4S 4-stroke 200cc engine providing close and cost effective racing with high performance engines. Because of its quieter engine it is sometimes not considered as a competitive class. It is, however, a very economical formula that probably needs more skill to ensure smooth lines. It is a true “club” class that promotes good, keen competition. Weight limit for kart and driver is 162kg.
