The BSR Electric Kart Championships have been organised since 2018. They are currently held at different levels in more than 10 countries, with 3–5 new countries or organisers joining each year. Electric kart technology offers an unprecedented experience for pilots. Many have tried to describe it, but it is best expressed by the sheer surprise and smile when trying it for the first time. No one of the more than 1,000 test pilots in the history of BSR has ever been able to hide their excitement – even celebrities like Lucas Di Grassi, Arthur Leclerc, Sten Pentus, JJ Lehto, and other world-class pilots.
E-CHAMPIONSHIPS SINCE 2018
HOW CAN I BECOME
To become a BSR Electric Kart Championship organiser, you need a distribution agreement with BSR, which entitles you to both organise the championships and provide equipment and other related services in the region.
HOW DO I BENEFIT?
By becoming a Regional Distributor or Exclusive Partner, you will have the right to sell BSR products at a profit. At the same time, by organising races, you can both promote sales and rent out racing venues to other drivers from your go-kart fleet, as well as attract green and high-tech sponsors.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
IN THE RACES?
BSR has developed go-karts for all classes, from 4-year-olds to professionals and seniors, so it is possible to organise championships for all classes in the largest format, but we usually recommend starting with one or two classes of your choice.
WHAT IS THE
To start organising a championship, you need at least one full class, which is 10+ go-karts of equal power. The organiser usually invests in opening the first class together with partners by renting out racing go-karts to participants, thus demonstrating the possibility for others to buy and participate, and further developing class upon class.
Electric go-karts make it possible to organise races virtually anywhere due to the reduced noise level. This is even possible in a large car park in the city centre. They deliver the same power, so the result depends entirely on the racer, and they require almost no maintenance, which means lower costs in the long run.
HOW IS CHARGING
Electric go-karts can be charged from a standard 90–240 VAC connection. A large fleet of 20+ go-karts may need more charging power, so BSR prepares precise calculations on where and how to achieve this most efficiently, and whether this is possible via the common power grid, solar platforms, battery systems, or other available alternatives. More than 50% of go-kart tracks can provide the required energy with a standard connection.
FUTURE OF KART RACING
This is a new technology with huge potential and those partners that are the first to invest their time, energy, and resources in it gain more experience and knowledge, while strengthening their market leadership, which allows them to capitalise best in the long term. Why BSR? Because there is no other competitor on the market in terms of performance, technology, and purchase price, so each of you can be part of a leading technology and develop it on a global level with your own championship.
For further insight, you can take a look below at the first steps in the development of BSR electric go-karts, how it started, how it has evolved, and what racers and organisers have to say about it.
