© 2013 KWC
The purpose of the championship is to nominate the best four-stroke kart driver in the World.
Affordable qualifying series across the planet, and affordable participation in the World
Championship event itself, will give a chance to many financially unsupported and excellent drivers
of four-stroke karts to prove themselves against very experienced past World Champions of the
category. It will ensure the highest level of driving.
The series has been founded by a highly experienced group of drivers including past World
Champions, with the sole aim of creating a professional, transparent and most importantly fair series
for the World's top drivers. KWC could become one of your first steps towards a successful racing
career- forming part of that success in its own right, or simply proof that you could have been
successful in such a path.
The format takes place over 5 days including 7 qualifying races. Semi-finals then take place for the
best 60 drivers after the qualifying races, and there is one Grand final for the best 30 drivers. This is
preceded by a stunning grid formation immediately after the semi-finals, which would entertain any
karting fan in the World. The fact that you have to drive 7 different karts from 35 available during
qualifying races, without the chance of repeating karts, undermines the luck factor.
Our race directors are not native to the host country and have been involved with this kind of
championship for more than 5 years. They have proven during this time span their neutrality and
knowledge of the rules. A commission formed by drivers from 8 different countries, and three
different continents can ensures that new suggestions are always discussed. In this way, the KWC
eliminates any difference caused by higher budgets. As Ayrton Senna would have said, this is 'pure
racing', no politics, and no money involved in the results.
The KWC is the highest level of four-stroke 'arrive and drive' kart competitions, and has national
qualifying series all over the world. Championships from Brazil, USA, Germany, UK, Italy, Hungary, and
others will send their top drivers to compete - ensuring that KWC will always contain the World's
top competitors. If you are an experienced race organizer in your country, please send us a
portfolio of your Karting Activities for a chance to join us.
