IKF Announces Adding Briggs & Stratton LO206 Classes to National Sprint Class Lineup

Clubs and Promoters can now instantly add these classes to their programs

The Board of Directors of the International Kart Federation is pleased to announce adding a complete class structure of Briggs & Stratton LO206 classes to the 4 Cycle Sprint National class list.  Recognizing the rapid growth and demand for this engine package and the grassroots efforts to expand kart racing, IKF moves to support these programs.

Briggs Racing logoClasses and parameters:
Class #3: Junior I LO206 (Attained Age 7-11) – 235lbs. (Blue Slide)
Class #7: Junior II LO206 (Age 12-15) – 310lbs. (Black Slide)
Class #10: Senior LO206 (Age 16+) – 360lbs. (Black Slide)
Class #15: Masters LO206 (Age 40+) – 390lbs. (Black Slide)

“The growth of LO206 racing this past year and the level of participation at the 2015 4 Cycle Sprint Grand Nationals supports these class updates,” says Roger Miller, IKF President. “The primary goal of IKF is to have the tools and support for clubs, track owners, promoters and karting participants to enjoy and grow karting.  The success of the B&S LO206 program is great, something I have been following since it was introduced, and clearly warrants the support of IKF.”

As previously announced Evinco are the spec tires for IKF Sprint National events and the Evinco Blue is perfect for the 4-cycle classes.  See the 2016 rulebook for specific tire application:
