Honda & Comer Cadet Kart Racing
Cadet racing is the ideal entry for budding young drivers looking to cut their teeth in Motorsport. The relatively quick speeds of the modern engines, competitive chassis's and close racing prove to be a big draw, with some of the larger events attracting 30 or more drivers. There are two engines available to race in Cadets, the first is the Honda GX160, which is a standard Honda engine running on unleaded four stroke fuel, many owners send the basic unit to an engine builder to uprate and increase the power substantially. These engines are hugely reliable and generally speaking require very little maintenance, an ideal option for the first time or non technical dad. The second option is the slightly more tempramental Comer engine which runs on two stroke fuel, these engines benefit from a knowledge of basic mechanics, carburator and jet set up. There is very little difference in performance between these two types of engines particularly at the top end of the sport when they tend to be set up by professional teams or experienced kart mechanics.
