Noting the growing evolution of the automobile market towards electrification, as well as the push of electricity in competition with the Forumla E and the Project E cars in the World Rally Championship, Blue Shock Race is convinced that the future of karting will pass through electric propulsion.
Latvia based Blue Shock Race is probably the purest electric racing kart manufacturer in the world. They are making only electric karts since day one. So it is not a big surprise that BSR is the world’s first electric kart provider to a national championship. Cooperating with well-known Chassis manu- facturer Gilliard racing karts BSR has also made the world’s first kids electric kart championship. And they are not willing to stop there.
All new BSR 25kW Electric kart has now been presented and available for orders.
Tested by JWRC leading driver Martins Sesks, FIA World Rallycross driver J.Baumanis and TCR International Series driver V.Zviedris, this racing kart is a real treat for most petrol karts. According to Go-kart reviewers from the USA Blue Shock Race 25 kW racing kart is the best electric racing kart on the market. „The BSR Racing Kart Pro is the best electric racing go-kart for adults due to its speed, build quality, and affordability.”
Sounds too good to be true. So where is the hook?
For most electric karts weak side is battery life. You can race for 15 to 30 min. and then you need to charge it for more than 1 hour. But again Blue Shock Race engineers and designers are few steps ahead and are offering a quick swap system. Quick swap system allows you to drive 94% of the time. So if you got 1 hour of training time you will be able to drive 56 minutes and for kid racing karts and rental karts efficiency is even higher up to 96-97%.
The second weakness is the price of the electric kart. But due to low maintenance cost, you will be even after about the first year.
