13th Monaco Kart Cup
Rallye Monte-Carlo goes green
When16 - 18 October 2009 (3 days) 

The 13th Monaco Kart Cup will be held by the Automobile Club de Monaco from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th October 2009.


This event forms part of the CIK/FIA racing calendar. The Automobile Club, who is organising the event, is providing the most spectacular of temporary urban circuits, employing the lower part of the legendary Monaco Formula One track.


This year the racetrack will be slightly modified from last year, in the section from the exit of the swimming pool to the Rascasse corner, due to a redesign of a large part of the Darse Sud. This shortens the circuit from 1079 m to 1068 m.


The programme features two international events:


As in previous years, one KF3 class race: a high performance class for drivers aged 13 to 15 years old. The class uses 125 cm│, 2-stroke, water-cooled engines producing about 28 hp (14,000 rpm), with Touch-and-Go electric starter and clutch, and preparation allowed. Free use of CIK-approved chassis. Minimum weight is 145 kg with driver.


And for the first time in Monaco, a KZ2 class race: this is the top category for karts with gearboxes, for ages 15 and upwards. Free use of CIK-approved chassis with front brakes. 125 cm│, 2-stroke, water-cooled engine producing about 42 hp, with six-speed gearbox and preparation allowed. Minimum weight with driver is 175 kg.


An endurance race will complete the weekend. Teams of 3 to 5 novice or experienced drivers will take part and the race will be divided into three two-hour legs.
