The Karting World Championship is a kart racing competition organised by the CIK-FIA. It is held annually, and is karting's flagship event. From 2011 the championship has been disputed over five rounds, each of them in a different country.[1]

In the late 80s the World Championship was raced with 135 cc Formula K karts. In 2007, a change in regulations introduced the KF1, 125 cc karts equipped with electric starters, clutch and rpm limiters set at 16,000 rpm, to replace the Formula A karts. The 2010 edition was raced with KF2 karts.[2]
