Just when the karting governing bodies thought they had finally got rid of 100cc, it now appears there are moves afoot to keep the 100cc alive in the UK. A petition, headed by Paul Fletcher, and Dave Bewley has been circulating at the MSA British Kart Championship proposing to re-introduce 100cc karting for 2008.
There was a lot of support shown for the petition today at PFi
The premise of the class, named Formula K100, would be to allow any current 100cc engine, but with fixed gearing to increase engine life. Dave Bewley feels it is just a waste to have so many 100cc kart engines hit the market at the end of 2007 that won’t be raced.

With engines potentially being sold very cheaply, and the simple, but effective rules increasing engine life Formula K100 could just make 100cc the viable option for anyone looking for proper good, affordable, and real kart racing in 2008!
We’ll have more information soon!
