The UK’s short ovals’ biggest junior formula!!!
One of the recent success stories for the ORCi, the Ninja Karts offer drivers as young as 6 years of age the opportunity to take their first steps into a career in motorsport. Drivers are able to race in Ninja Karts until their 11th birthday before graduating to the likes of Ministox or Junior Productions.
Ninja Karts are a spectacular sight on the short ovals of the UK as the youngsters slice and dice their way to the front in this non-contact class which can be seen across the UK from Scotland and Northern Ireland to the Midlands and the South of England.
The majority of Ninja Karts are purpose-built from the ground up for the rigours of short oval racing and come with sealed engines meaning that it is a driver’s ability that gets their car to the front as the 50cc engines are strictly controlled to ensure fairness and a level playing field.
Second hand cars range from £1000 to £2000 ready to race. New cars can range from £2800 to £3500 again ready to race. You can also build your own car as per the formula’s rulebook which can be accessed through the various promoters’ websites.
Unlike circuit kart racing, Ninja Kart racing typically sees the stars of the sport start at the rear of the grid; to win they have to make their way through a field of often over twenty cars. It is a non-contact sport and officials monitor the circuit closely and take action against those committing misdemeanours!
This great little formula offers the aspiring youngsters on the terraces the chance to live their dream as racing drivers and offers the 6-11 year olds a great introduction to oval racing.
Hardie Race Promotions are at the forefront in developing up and coming drivers through our Ninja Kart class, with many Scottish based drivers having won the major championships in the formula in recent years, with many then progressing on to succeed in the other junior formula.
Hardie Race Promotions are proud to have UK Massage Chairs on board as the title sponsor for the Ninja Karts in the 2021 season - for 2021, the formula will be referred to as UKMC Ninja Karts.
