The Ignite program offers affordable entry into karting in an environment with a level playing field for all. Maximize track time and minimize maintenance and costs as you constantly improve your racing skills in an ultra-competitive environment. Factory sealed engines from Briggs Racing and a chassis developed by industry leader Margay Racing combine to provide a platform where the emphasis is solidly on driver development.
The Ignite program uses two different chassis: the Ignite K2 for 8-12 year-old racers and the Ignite K3 for 12+ year-old racers. Manufactured by Margay Racing in St. Louis, each Ignite chassis is built to a certain specification to ensure all racers are racing on the same equipment.
