1.3 How much does it cost?

It would be difficult to put a cost on any form of racing. However the Junior class has been designed to fit most budgets. You could get out on the track with a second hand kart and piston port engine for as little as 6oo pounds. Or the new IAME 125cc Leopard engine on it's own would cost around 1200 pounds including vat. Don't forget to budget for Tyres. The Maxxis HG2 is one of the most economical at 99 pounds inclusive.
