KombiKart Challenge MKIII – Q & A with Ton van de Burgt

KombiKart Challenge MKIII

Kombikart is the only Dutch manufacturer of CIK-FIA homologated race karts, operating out of a 3000m2 factory in Schijndel, Holland. With only 10 permament employees Kombikart is one of the smaller kart manufacturers, but they have still achieved a lot of success particularly in Rotax Max racing (Euro Challenge and National Championships). Their factory racing effort (Hugo Motorsports) is run by team manager Hugo van der Ham, a former Dutch kart-champion and formula car driver.

The KombiKart Challenge MKIII is the company’s only kart homologated for the 2009-2014 homologation period, and some of its unique design features ensure that despite having only one kart, it is capable of handling various different kinds of tyres and engines.

Maranello RS8 – set to change the look of the modern kart?

Maranello have come out with a very radical new design for 2009, the RS8. It features a centrally located rear brake system and 3rd bearing with a floating disc, floating caliper, and floating bearing. The entire frame design is also different to anything else currently on the market. The tubing has a symmetrical design, no rear torsion bar (one fixed tube across the back), and a very interesting front end.

View the pictures here, and discuss the kart in the forums here.
