7kart™ design and build karts for the Prokart class of karting, which utilises 2 Honda 4-stroke engines. There are championships for endurance racing and sprint racing.
7kart was founded in 2002, and has continued to develop over the years, improving the 7Kart™ design. The 7Kart™ brand continues to be well respected in the pro-karting arena and our karts are often highly placed in pro-kart races (if not hogging all of the top spots)
In order to give our customers a high level of service, we have invested in all parts and accessories to ensure that we have excellent stock levels, as well as offering a fast parts dispatch service.
7kart was founded
7Kart UK Limited based in Walkern, Hertfordshire is started by Robert Nurse and Chris Riggall and takes over production from 7Kart Limited owned by Neil Dodson and Pete Hill. Chassis production still done by Malcolm Graves at GR8 in Northampton
7Kart UK Limited takes over all tools and equipment from GR8 and relocates the chassis manufacturing to their Walkern premises, maintaining the services of Malcolm.
Chassis jig is now fitted with a heater to allow pre-warming of the chassis during the colder months.
The 7Kart Mk 3 is launched at Kartmania 2008. The changes are:
Four bearing axle with torsion bar
Wider pedals for increased comfort
Grease nipples fitted to chassis sleeves
Stronger throttle stop
Revised Nassau panel mounting
Relocated engine mounts
Redesigned rear bumper
Extra adjustment grooves on axle
Fixing points for cables and pipes
Weight bar fixings integral to chassis
Increased caster plate material thickness
The 7Kart classic is launched, keeping the basic Mk2 design, but adding the Mk3 benefits, including the wider pedal, grease nipples, weight post kits, re-positioned engine mounts and cable clips.
Camber Adjustment kit launched
New body work and side pod sockets are introduced. Chassis numbers are also now stamp on the Caster Tube for extra security.
The Mark 4 is launched, retailing the Mk3 front end, and the same outer rails, but
now has reverted back to 3 bearings, with the centre bearing still separate to the rear rail.
We spent 2 years developing the replacement for the MK4 and launch it at Kartmania. This was the biggest change to the 7Kart design, as we go over to the wishbone design front end, and to mark this occasion we dropped the “MK” designation and christened it the XV (roman numerals for 15, the year it was launched).
