A standalone KZ2 Masters class for drivers 35-years or more will be contested at the KZ2 World Championship at Le Mans in September.
The FIA World Motor Sport Council recently validated the creation of the “FIA Karting International Masters’ Super Cup – KZ2”. The new category will run a minimum weight of 180kg (compared to 175kg for KZ2), but all other regulations will be identical to KZ2, including tyres (LeCont, SV Prime for slick and SV1 for rain).
“FIA Karting wished to take into account the reality of the field as well as numerous requests made to create a category allowing older drivers to compete among themselves” an FIA Karting press release stated.
“The aim is to take into consideration the sporting and physical differences of the drivers usually found in the KZ2 category, which is accessible from the age of 15.”
The Masters field will be capped at 36 drivers. Entries have just opened via the FIA website and cost €570, but rise to €855 on August 3. Entries close August 10.
.The FIA Karting World Championship KZ2 and the International Masters’ Super Cup KZ2 will take place at Le Mans from September 1st to 4th.
