At Formula E Indoor Raceway, we are converted fans of the electric kart!
Why electric? The electric kart has several clear advantages over its fossil-fuelled rivals, including a low environmental impact, absence of noxious exhaust fumes or flammable fuels, and superior performance, which is why we decided that we would use electric karts exclusively at Formula E Indoor Raceway. Our karts are designed and manufactured in Italy by OTL karts.
With 4kw AC electric motors that produce far more torque than other petrol kart engines, our electric karts have superb acceleration out of tight corners; a gas engine can get bogged down, whereas our electric motors are capable of delivering maximum torque instantaneously.
Unlike a gas-powered kart, an electric kart can be programmed to a variety of pre-set speeds to accommodate drivers of varying skill levels. Additionally, our electric karts can be speed reduced while in the pits and can be turned off remotely in the event of an on- track emergency. At Formula E Indoor Raceway, we feel that the electric go kart provides not only a more thrilling indoor karting experience, but also a much safer experience as well. We’re confident that once you see the electric karts in action or experience the rush and excitement that our electric karts have to offer, you’ll agree that electric karts are the only way to go!
