2017 OTK karts announced
To the naked eye, the Tony Kart Racer 401S, Kosmic Mercury MY17, Exprit Noesis MY17 and Alonso Victory MA17 don’t immediately have any significant changes, but do have a series of enhancements that promise to make these already race and championship-winning chassis even more satisfying to drive and work on.
Overall, there are ten detail changes across the range. These include a new rear brake, floor tray, seat and steering column support, third bearing support and front bumper supports, plus throttle cable adjuster as well as revised CIK front bumper bars.
Significantly, these developments are aimed to make adjusting the kart – for different track and weather conditions – easier for the driver and mechanic, which is especially crucial in pressurized situations when such variables can change in a heartbeat and alterations to set-up can be needed whilst on the dummy grid.
The Tony Kart Neos is an entirely new model developed to best suit the needs of youngsters racing in the Mini and Cadet classes. This chassis promises very different characteristics to its predecessor, and is equipped with the typical details of the Racer 401S, such as: next-generation aluminium wheels, new stub axles and wheel hubs, ergonomic steering wheel and standard footrests.
Much of the development work for the 2017 Neos has been conducted by Tony Kart’s UK partner, Strawberry Racing to make it ideally suited for the cut and thrust of British Cadet racing.
The new range of chassis will be available from mid-December 2016.
