Karting World Championship 2015

10-13, September, 2015

Karting is considered to be the first stepping stone for young drivers aspiring to reach the highest levels of motor sport, or simply hoping for a career as a racing driver.

​

While the vast majority of current (and past) F1 drivers came from Karting, it has grown racing talents that populate a wide variety of racing disciplines, such as the FIA World Endurance Championship, which is the basis of the 24 Hours of Le Mans classic each June.

​

DIAD Group Motorsport decided to give a closer look at the discipline, and, as usual, exploit the opportunity to tests some technical advanced solutions, like a nanocomposite damping coating and some special components, in collaboration with the Spanish Team Jamkart.

​

The event was held at the extraordinary "Le Mans Karting International." 

Nearly 200 drivers descend on Le Mans, no doubt drawn by the prospect of competing at Le Mans.

​

They were representing a remarkable 42 countries and did battle in front of a big crowd that will include FIA President Jean Todt.

​

DIAD Group participated with Segio Duranter in the KZ, which is the advanced category for gearbox karts – it was previously called Super ICC and KZ1. Since its inception in 2010, KZ has attracted some of the most promising young drivers before they take the next step to single-seater racing.
