Tony Kart Rookie

The chassis for the international Mini CIK-FIA category - result of the synergy between the Tony Kart Racing Team and the OTK Kart Group R&D department - in 2022, there is a double offering with the EVH and the new EVS; the last one has a renewed frame in terms of geometry. The versions range expands further in 2024 with the introduction of the EVM, a direct evolution of the EVS.

EVH and EVS models


The first model of the Rookie was born in 2020, at the same time as the first homologation reserved to the new international Mini CIK-FIA category, as a result of the intense work by the OTK Kart Group R&D department and the Tony Kart Racing Team, at the forefront of the most prestigious international competitions. After two years, the Rookie "splits" into two versions: the EVH, designed for hard tyres, and the EVS, suitable for "soft" compound tyres. In 2024, the EVM version is introduced; it is a further variant. This is a direct evolution of the EVS; therefore, it is always suitable for "soft" tyres.

Development on track


The frames of the Rookie EVH, EVS and EVM are created on the basis of the information gathered on track by the Tony Kart Racing Team, engaged on international race tracks, and subsequently developed by the OTK Kart Group R&D department. Since the very first moments, both with the first 2020 and with the current triple version, edition and with the current twin version, the aim has been to develop a chassis able to provide the best possible compromise between performance and ease of setting up the vehicle for all young karters.

The braking system


The BSM5 brake system on the Tony Kart Rookie has been extensively tested and has proven to be at the top in terms of performance and efficiency. The system is equipped with automatic pedal stroke recovery for pad wear and now features a new floating disc. The pump is made of Ergal, while the brake lines are with outer cover stainless steel braid. All the components in Ergal, a material chosen for its excellent mechanical resistance, undergo a hard oxidation treatment in order to give the components a significant anti-wear surface hardness.

The details


The materials used for the components are processed through machined processes that guarantee the total duplicability of each product along with the highest quality standards. The new Rookie EVH/EVS/EVM also features an adjustable footrest, useful for adapting the driving position to the different heights of the drivers in this category, and a pedal attachment system which allows the fitting of a complete rudder pedal. The steering wheel, specially conceived for the small hands of drivers of the Mini category, is fitted as standard with an inclined steering wheel hub.

The fairings


As always, the kart is aesthetically featured by the innovative M8 fairing kit, studied in the wind tunnel and already tested with remarkable results on top category karts. The number plate spoiler, able to further reduce aerodynamic resistance and now completely green in colour, is undoubtedly an element that can contribute to making a difference in terms of performance, in a category where races are often played out on the edge of thousandths of a second.
