M7 AND M8, THE INNOVATIVE FRONT NUMBER PANELS BY OTK
In 2018 OTK introduced the M7 front number panel on all of the Group’s karts. In 2020, the Italian manufacturer added the M8 model, reserved to the MINI class homologated by CIK-FIA
In recent years, the constant search for maximum performance in karting has led technicians to explore areas of knowledge which were previously given less consideration. One of these is certainly aerodynamics, a topic which opens up a wide range of possibilities to optimize both products and performance. Thus, accessories like the front number panel and the front nose kit, for example, prove to be crucial in the distribution of airflow, penetration and downforce, already at low speeds. In today’s karting, performance is measured by the hundredths of a second and even the slightest improvement can be a determining factor for the final results. Consequently, it is easy to understand why companies like OTK have utilized many resources and the latest technologies to study how to optimize each component. A symbol of this approach is the M7 front number panel, from which the M8 for the MINI classes is derived, two accessories in which experience, technology and innovation have been joined and are worth a thorough analysis.
