MSA confirms Le Cont tyres for Bambino class
The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is delighted to announce that it has selected the Le Cont MSA 04 intermediate as the Bambino kart class tyre, with effect from 1 January 2014.
The tyre will be homologated by the MSA. The announcement follows a tender process launched in August 2012 to find a supplier for the Bambino tyres and another for the engine. The engine has already been confirmed as the Comer C50.
Nick Bunting, MSA Chief Executive, said: “The Le Cont MSA 04 tyre will help us to take the Bambino kart class forward and build on its solid foundations as a popular first step into motor sport. Combined with the Comer C50 engine, the new tyre should ensure a bright future for the class, with parity of performance in all weather conditions for a fair cost.”
Dan Parker of Zip Kart, Le Cont’s UK distributor, said: “We have worked closely with the Le Cont during this tender process to produce this brand new all-weather tyre . In testing the tyre has delivered very consistent behaviour in both wet and dry conditions as well as great durability. We feel this is a fantastic tyre for the new class allowing drivers one tyre for all conditions.”
