New for 2018 MBKC will be running a full Bambino MSA regulated championship.
The Bambino class is specifically designed for 6-8 year olds to experience the sport of karting. The bambino class uses a kart that is the correct size and not to heavy for drivers. The karts are powered by the Comer 50cc engine , the engines are prepared by Comer for the UK market to ensure they comply to the MSA regulations and have engine identification seals on both the cylinder and crankcase, these engine numbers must match the ones on the database of the UK distributors Zip kart ,and the numbers on your Comer C50 engine log card. This is to keep the level of tuning and selecting parts for engines to a minimum.
The class also uses the MSA Le Cont all weather tyre, which has been specially designed for the Bambino class in the UK. The tyre is a hard compound slick tyre with a wet tread pattern cut into it. This means that you only need one type of tyre for all conditions wet or dry.
This will be run as per msa rules and will be a time trial format. Saturday practice day and sunday race day. The official msa championship will be visiting in july. All Rules and regulations can be found here. https://www.msabambino.com/
