Tony Kart, 2024 chassis range between (winning) confirmations and news
OTK Kart Group's flagship brand consolidates and expands its "Racing" offer, which ranges from the multi-winner Racer 401 RR- 3-time world champion already -to the Rookie, intended for MINI categories, now also available in the new EVM version.
"A winning team does not need to be changed": just for this reason Tony Kart introduces its 2024 chassis range, among plenty of confirmations and one particular novelty. The key point represented by the Racer 401 RR model able of winning - from the end of 2021, at its debut on the track, until today - three world championships in all three FIA Karting categories: OKJ, OK and KZ, remains firm.
However, there is also no shortage of novelties with the Rookie, tripling its offering: in fact, in addition to the already existing EVH and EVS versions, the CIK-FIA homologated model intended for the MINI categories sees the introduction of a new version called EVM.
For nearly two decades, the Racer has embodied Tony Kart's winning tradition. From 2004 to nowadays, this model and its evolutions have collected a total of 10 world titles in the single-gear and shifter categories, including the latest one in the OKJ class with the 2022 edition. Not only, the Racer 401 RR has consistently been one of the main protagonists of the most prestigious competitions in the last two years, going on to consistently enrich the Italian brand's legacy with several international titles.
Born in 2020, the Rookie model "split" into two versions in 2022: the EVH, which prefers the use of "hard" tires, and the EVS, designed for "soft" tires. In the last racing season, the Rookie won the WSK Super Cup by MINI (in the U10 category) and took several podiums in both the WSK series and the Italian ACI Karting Championship. Based on these concrete results, starting next year there will be an additional version of the Rookie: the EVM, a direct development of the EVS, also intended for "soft" compound tires.
Playing a key role in the development of Tony Kart-branded winning products is the Tony Kart Racing Team, able of always working close with the OTK Kart Group R&D department with the aim of testing, on the most selective race tracks, the new technical solutions that only after a hard process of development and planning are put on the market at the disposal of kart drivers all over the world.
All product signed by OTK Kart Group are manufactured according to the philosophy "Designed, Engineered, Manufactured, 100% made in OTK - Italy" following a complete control of the production chain beginning with the use of only selected materials and continuing through largely automated machining in order to ensure uncompromising quality and performance standards.
A design and manufacturing approach which also refers to the other models in Tony Kart's product range, the confirmed TDX models, which takes on board all the winning features of the Racer 401 RR from which it differs only in the diameter of the body tubes (Ø 32 mm), as well as Kid and Micro, reserved for the youngest children.
