The Endurance Karting Association
Endurance Karting was introduced to Australia in the late 1990’s. Unlike sprint karting, where races are usually only 10 or 15 laps, endurance events are usually for a minimum of 4 hours and can be as long as 24 hours – continuous racing!
Pit stops, driver changes, refuelling stops, race strategy and kart preparation all combine to offer a challenging and exciting “real racing” environment at a cost which is comparatively affordable.
TEKA has 2 engine suppliers, Briggs & Stratton, and Honda. The B&S’s are powered by two 8hp motors. The two Honda’s are powered by 6.5hp motors. This ensures that speeds can reach around the 100km/h mark. The racing is competitive and close with teams often separated by seconds or minutes at the end of a 6 hour race.
