Canadian Karting League introduces class 38

Canadian_Karting_League-100The Canadian Karting League is expanding its Pro Series 4-stroke class for 2013. The new class structure is simple math, its called Class 38. Simply put that means you can run a 4-stroke Honda or Briggs and the weight is 38lbs/hp. Engines will be dyno’d on the series dynometer, then sealed and given the weight based on horsepower. This allows bigger drivers to use more horsepower rather than having smaller drivers add more weight.

In 2013, Cadet drivers in the Pro Series could use 5.5Honda’s at 210lbs or 6.5 Honda or clones (box stock) at 247lbs. “We were very happy with the way this worked out in 2013,” CKL’s Bill Pollard said. “We just have so many superstock motors lying around that we had to come up with a way for them to be used. Now with the dyno sheets, heavier guys won’t be penalized by their weight.”
