 LOW    COST   RACING  with   OEKC   in   2018
We are promoting the PROMAX class for the OEKC for 2018, but you can try one at Daytona MK in October.
The class will use Promax ( junior Rotax max ) engines & 165kg minimum weight incl driver.
The advantages of using these reliable engines are;
1) A fresh engine should last the whole season without a rebuild.
2) The tyres can last 2 to 3 races
3) The kart will use less fuel
4) Less strain & pressure on the driver
5) The kart will use a hard axle which should last at least 3 races ( 18 hours on track!)
6) Sprocket size will be specified for each circuit
7) Wear & tear on the chassis will be less
8) Teams/drivers will be able to change / upgrade to a senior max team anytime they want.
9) Promax teams will score points in the main championship as well as in the PROMAX championship.
10) Overall running costs should be substantially lower than running in the current classes.
If you are interested in hiring a Griffiths Motor Sports (GMS) prepared ProMax for the final race of the season at Daytona MK on October 22nd 2017 please email me asap.  oekc@hotmail.co.uk
The cost per driver in a team of 4 will be £180 each which includes your race entry fee
