Test day success for X-KART at Whilton Mill

"It’s finally great to get out here at Whilton Mill, after many weeks and months in the making. Great feedback so far, the drivers are really happy and us as mechanics, and it’s been fantastic all round. A really positive day."

X-Kart made its welcome first visit to the tarmac at Whilton Mill in late September, after a quick turnaround of all four karts being built up into rolling chassis within 72 hours of hitting UK soil, fresh from Italy.


X-Kart Owner Matty Street, who has been hard at work bringing the brand to life, was really pleased with seeing all four chassis out on track in Northamptonshire, using Rotax MAX EVO 125cc engines.


"It’s finally great to get out here at Whilton Mill, after many weeks and months in the making. Great feedback so far, the drivers are really happy and us as mechanics, and it’s been fantastic all round. A really positive day."


He also praised all the hard efforts of the team that had helped to bring the new karts to life, which were driven by Team BRIT's Bobby Trundley, eTeam BRIT driver and Junior Rotax racer Sandro Ballesteros, James Jacobs, along with Jonny Elliot and Bradley Philpot from Squadra Furio.


"Today, we’ve had a mixed bag regarding the weather, a couple of sessions were dry and some were wet. All in all, a steep learning curve for all of us here at X-Kart."
