As with last year, we’re working with Dartford Karting who have sourced, stockpiled and laser-etched the barcodes on the Maxxis Sport tyres that we’ll be using for the 2024 season.

Drivers are strictly limited to TWO sets of race slicks for the race season and in a change to last year, you have to use one set for the first three rounds and one set for the last three rounds.

All race slicks must be ordered from Dartford Karting regardless of how you have registered for the championship however those that have subscribed, do not have to pay for their tyres.

We have detailed below the tyres we use, where to order tyres and the registration process.

NKC Tyre rule

It’s quite simple. One set of slicks for the first 3 rounds. One set of slicks for the last 3 rounds.

We take the tyre rule very seriously as it is fundamental to our principles that NKC is built on so we do scan all your tyres and have other technology available to detect any tampering of tyres. Tyre softener is not allowed and we reserve the right to exclude any driver that we suspect of using it or trying to break or circumvent our rules.

It is the driver’s responsibility to be on the right (laser-etched) tyres when racing. If we find you are on the wrong tyres when joining the dummy grid, we will not hold up races while you change them.

We highly recommend that you mark your tyres up with a paint pen and keep your tyres in a dedicated tyre bag to avoid mixing them up. NKC tyre bags will be on sale at Round 1 and you can buy paint pens from Amazon.

We will confirm how to register tyres in due course.
