The 250cc National class is one Australia's most popular category. The engine is based on MotoX type engines. All engines must be single cylinder and usally have either a 5 or 6 speed gearbox. These engines are producing 60 horsepower + and can be a real handful to drive. many drivers make good use of large body panels and rear wings to display very creative paintwork and sponsor signage.
Purchase Costs: A new 250 National kart about $18000-$25000.
A good secondhand kart about $8000-$16000.
