Sean Babington is a serious talent and definitely one who’s going to go far in this game. Here he is at PFi in the Euromax series, laying down some slick laps. Watch the free practice onboard with eventual race winner Sean Babington at the third round of the Rotax Euro Max Challenge. Forward the video on to the 3-minute mark to watch a properly tidy lap. Sean is driving an FA / Rotax DD2 with Dan Holland Racing team. The video is taken using a GoPro Hero HD
Take a 450cc, single cylinder motocross motorcycle engine and bolt it into a kart. Think of it like three GX160 engines, on steroids. Then add a bit more. And a bit more. Yep, you’re close. Mental!
Now this is just silly. Take a normal kart and bolt into it a 170bhp 1,000cc Honda Fireblade engine. The thing looks like a massive accident waiting to happen. Head to 1m30 to see it lighting up its wheels under acceleration. Now I like speed, but this, well… this is a bit too much!
If you haven’t heard of Assen, it’s an amazing fast and flowing circuit in Holland, it famously hosts the MotoGP motorcycles and World Superbike races. What better track to race a Superkart?
There are some serious karts in this video, KF2, Rotax Max, Shifter. Scroll to the 2-minute mark to watch the action and then check out the 5m45 mark to see the Shifter kart wipe the floor.
Formula A. It’s cast in karting gold. Where legends were made. This video from 2006 is no exception. Just look at the grid: Gary Catt, Lee Bell, Mike Spencer, Ollie Millroy, Ben Cooper, Jamie Croxford… the list goes on.
The camera kart is with Ollie Millroy and there’s some late, late braking on lap one! Enjoy.
