We are firm believers in the benefits of using tyres for many races and see no significant drawbacks. Therefore our regulations state that only 1 set of slicks may be used for the duration of the championship.
We are pleased to be working with Biz Karts again on the supply of Mitas slicks and wets. Both tyres took everything we could throw at them in 2017 and proved to be the perfect choice for NKC.
Only tyres purchased from NKC may be used in the championship races. There is no restriction on tyres used in practice sessions.
We are now accepting orders for both practice and race tyres.Order online here
