New Formula K

IPKarting has revealed a newly formed IPK Engineering brand with the launch of their new-look Formula K kart and its further optional features.

“While 2024 is full of news for IPKarting, the models produced by the factory remain unchanged and are still the same for all IPK brands: Formula K, Praga Kart, OK1 and RS Kart” the organisation said in a media release.

The Monster EVO 3 chassis is for the Mini classes, while the Dragon and Fighter models are available in three versions for Junior and Senior categories:

  • XS1 (recommended for the Shifter categories)
  • XS3 (recommended for the TaG categories)
  • DD2 (specifically for the unique the Rotax class)

“The new IPK Engineering logo now distinguishes all the components and accessories that are born in IPKarting, as a testament to their high quality standards, to the advanced skills of the professionals who manufacture them and to the state-of-the-art technologies that are employed to shape them.

“The introduction of the new exclusive colour called Carbotech further proves IPKarting’s attention to detail, coherently representing the technical properties of the new aluminium alloy that is used to produce the main components of Formula K karts, such as hubs, pedals and elements of the braking system.


“This peculiar material is mostly employed in the aerospace industry, but also for road and off-road vehicles as well as in motorsport. It excels in terms of weight, being the lightest aluminium alloy and at the same time the most resistant one, from a mechanical point of view, when it comes to withstanding impacts, strains and torsions. Moreover, this material is the least subject to thermal expansion and consequently the most suitable for parts that are in contact with heat sources and that are used in external environments.”

Further changes are:

  • new bracket designed to adjust the height of the accelerator cable (improves the use of the accelerator cable and makes it more linear, especially when a driver needs the rearmost positions with the IPK multi-adjustable pedals).
  • new reinforced seat supports with increased thickness that allows them to be more tenacious and boosts their capacity in terms of load transfer.

The Formula K product line includes further IPK Engineering-developed optional equipment:

  • additional steel torsion bar with a round section and a thickness of 1.5 mm
  • straight adjustable seat support
  • 7° angled plate for the steering wheel hub
  • multi-adjustable steering column (available for the steering columns of 490, 420 and 342 mm) with new tie rod fastening plates to offer a wider range of adjustments with regard to the Ackermann angle.
