OPEN KARTS

Solt Speedway would not be Solt Speedway without the iconic ‘Open’ class. The Jerry Solt legacy was built upon this unruly class with one’s imagination being the only restriction to the design & power of the kart.

Racing Format - Vintage format of racing the fastest from the back. The day will begin with qualifying, 1 heat race followed by a feature.

LO 206

The 206 by Briggs & Stratton is intended to simplify racing, From hitting the track to the tech process needed to ensure a level playing field at the end of the day in combination with Briggs & Stratton Racing’s slide restriction system, a complete racing ladder can be developed by simply changing a carburetor slide and/or by a slide and ignition change. With the base engine the basis for today’s ‘box stock’ classifications, the 206 engine gives racer’s and tracks the ability to have one engine, from start to finish.

Simply put, families can invest into one engine and have it carry them through different age groups for several years and still be competitive. The engine requires little attention as it mainly needs maintenance only. It is a great package for families looking to get into the sport.
