Kart Academy 2018 gets the engines and bateries ready

Next Saturday, June 30, at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, will be held the first edition of this educational project organized by STA, with the collaboration of CIAC and FCA and integrated into motorsport2020.cat


There are only a few days to see the karts designed and built by the students of the automotive training cycles and that will be presented at the Circuit de Barcelona - Catalunya, next June 30th.


The 1st edition of Kart Academy, sponsored by DOGA and the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, was born from the collaboration between the Society of Automotive Technicians (STA), the Cluster of the Automotive Industry of Catalonia (CIAC), motorsport2020. cat and the Federació Catalana d'Automobilisme (FCA). It is a project aimed at students of vocational schools and institutes, so that they can design, build and compete with a kart developed by them.


June 30 is when students will have to do the staging and try to overcome a series of static and dynamic tests with their karts. Within the static tests, in the morning they will have to expose their vehicle to a technical inspection and they will have to present their project before the judges of the competition. In the afternoon, if they have passed the technical inspection, they can perform the acceleration, handling and resistance tests, where the behavior and reliability of the kart they have built will be assessed.


For this first edition, 10 teams from different populations of Catalonia have registered, 5 with combustion engines and 5 with electric batteries.
