Montana Karting Association

Sprint Karting

Designed for the participants, classes are divided by the competitors age, experience, kart type and overall weight. This keeps each class on the same pace and skill level, making for enjoyable competitive action. Driving on sprint tracks demands quick reactions, full concentration, endurance and focus. Drivers often challenge each other wheel to wheel and nose to tail, lap after lap.There are two types of engine classes, 2-cycle and 4-cycle. The motors vary in sizes from 50cc to 125cc and performance speeds. It is estimated that 90% of professional race drivers today started in Sprint Racing. Drivers from Formula One, Nascar, IRL and CART, such as Jeff Gordon, Jamie McMurray, Lewis Hamilton, Michael Schumacher, Paul Tracy, Al Unser Jr., and Michael Andretti. Many of these current professional drivers race Shifter Karts in the off-season to maintain their sharp reflexes for the start of the next year.
