2018 KART DIVISION CLASSES AND SPECIFICATIONS

Ransomville Speedway recognizes a rookie / novice karter as one who has not raced

Motor Option #3

Note:  The intention of this motor choice is to attract new people to karting as cheaply as possible!  This motor can be put together rather easily for under $200 brand new.  Because this motor is slightly larger in C.I.D. than a traditional Clone, no internal modifications are allowed in an effort to equalize all of the motors.  Please keep in mind that this motor is also not legal to move up with, but if you intend to compete the entire season in the Novice class, this is a great way to get started!
