About the 2024 KZ2

The KZ2 geared class is the fastest among the short circuit British Championships, topping out at 90mph at most tracks. Max Verstappen is perhaps the best-known graduate of this class, which is hugely popular across Europe.

Although a greater investment than the Junior or other Senior categories, the gearbox, or shifter, karts are surprisingly easy to maintain on a budget. With up to 30 gearshifts a lap and sub-3-second 0-60 mph times, drivers do need to be very fit. There are a variety of CIK approved or homologated engines to choose from and coupled with a high-grip Le Cont tyre, the experience is similar to a fast formula single-seater.
