125cc Max Junior & Senior Light, Senior Heavy125cc Rotax "Max". The 125cc Rotax Max powered kart is restricted, guaranteeing every competitor an equal chance. The 125 Rotax does not have a gearbox but utilises a centrifugal clutch, is water-cooled and has a starter motor.
Top speed is around 145kph, and the rules restrict engine modifications and components to 'as standard', and the karts must use a longer life tyre.
The purpose built Rotax motor pumps out about 30hp but is not stressed (in racing terms), and requires a minor overhaul (piston and ring) at 25hrs racing and a major overhaul at about 50 hours. It is the most affordable form of Superkarting and provides heaps of fun and great racing for the young and not so young. No pit crew is required (but they are always welcome) and most of our Max drivers can unload their karts from their trailers unaided. They then top up the fuel, check the tyres, oil the chain, jump in the seat, hit the starter button..... and GO HAVE FUN!
There are 3 official classes, 125 Max Junior for 12 - 15 year olds running at 145kg and 125 Max Senior Light and Heavy for drivers over 16 years running at 165kg. However at club meetings the senior classes are divided into Division 1 & Division 2 to give the learners, heavies and cash strapped a chance of winning a trophy or two.
250cc International Gear Box--These awesome machines are the Formula One's of Karting and are the Ultimate Motor Racing Thrill. Twin cylinder engines, a top speed in excess of 250kph, with lap times as fast as the V8 Supercars, GP250 and Super Bikes!
