Amazing Launch of the First Monaco E-Kart Championship

Seven years after having designed Kart Indoor Monaco – whose eighth 100% electric season is in the starting blocks on the Parking des Pêcheurs circuit – Monegasque Clivio Piccione and the MEKC team are preparing to launch the first edition of Monaco E-Kart Championship. The kick-off will take place during three “detection-trials “ weekends scheduled from November 13 to 28, intended to offer three “Volant MEKC 2022”, one per age category, for the 12 city races scheduled for next year in the Principality. Races will extend from Monaco, to France and Italy too.

At 37, Monegasque driver Clivio Piccione, whose professional career took him to F3, GP2 and A1 Grand Prix, where he defended the colours of the Principality of Monaco, is never short of ideas.

The latest May even be the best with this 1st Monaco E-Kart Championship, whose first six competitions (12 races) of extremely high-performance electric karts will take place next year on city circuits in a festive atmosphere and access to which will be free for spectators.

Monaco, Nice, Menton and Italy to start

The six circuits of the Monaco E-Kart Championship 2022 from November 13 to 28, 2021: three of the different tracks will be created in the Principality itself, the first for the inaugural event, the second in the middle of the season and the third indoors for the final competitions; two events will be contested in France – in Nice and Menton – and one in Italy.

Thus, after Team Monaco, a sports team intended to promote the practice of karting for all, and the Kart Indoor Monacoelectric karts concept, Clivio Piccione and his team are opening up yet another new path.

MEKC 2022 will indeed be the first 100% electric international kart Championship, offered turnkey with an identical number of test days for each competitor, with identical equipment controls for all: motor power from 7kW to 25kW depending on the category, a Charles Leclerc chassis by Birel Art, tyres, set up and minimum weight gauge in each category.
