Senior (ages 15+)

Drivers who have attained the competition age (the age a driver attains during the calendar year) of 15 have a range of classes to choose from.  Both the Yamaha & KPV classes utilize the same engines as Junior Sportsman and Junior categories thus allowing an easy transition to the Senior classes.  As with other categories, the Yamaha class is the most popular class across the country.  KPV, TaG, Rotax and PRD classes also enjoy strong participation depending on location.  What may be the most popular class in one region may not exist in another region so do your homework.  If you are just getting started, the Yamaha class is ideal as it is well supported and a great place to master the fundamentals which will lead to more success as you move into the more powerful classes.

TaG refers to the ‘Touch and Go’ aspect of the electric start 125cc classes.  Unlike Yamaha & KPV, TaG engines are water-cooled and do not require an external starter.  TaG is considered a premier class where solid fundamental skills and ability are required to be competitive.

The Rotax engine falls under the TaG category but typically runs in a stand alone series.
