Maranello. The very name is evocative: it has the sweet perfume of Italy and, for anyone interested at all in automobiles, the place is synonymous with Ferrari. The small town close to Modena is the epicentre of the passion for the red racing cars with the prancing horse, laden with prestige, elegance and performance.

In Maranello, cars and motor sport are granted the status of religions, of those religions which arouse vocations. As Italy is also the land of Karting, Maranello was inevitably bound to inspire kart lovers. And the headquarters of the engine Manufacturer SGM, mainly renowned for its KZ gearbox engines, are indeed located a stone’s throw from the Ferrari plants.

In 1996, Maranello Kart was born and the small enterprise started manufacturing chassis… recognisable thanks to their red colour. After three years of development, the make Maranello Kart had the CIK-FIA proceed to the first official homologation of its chassis.

Without giving up its name, the make nonetheless left the town of Maranello to settle at Lonato, near the well-known South Garda Karting circuit. A man was to transform the make and give it the international dimension that we know today: Armando Fillini. His Karting expertise associated to his passion was to enable Maranello to become a major protagonist on the scene of international competitions. In 2008 and 2009, the Maranello Racing Team is even the team which entered the largest number of Drivers in the CIK-FIA Championships!

The make also reaps success as it won in particular a World Cup for KF1 in Japan (Davide Foré, 2008), several European titles (Junior in 2006 with Miquel Monras, Super KF in 2009 with Aaro Vainio). Maranello Kart often distinguished itself by its will to promote young talents, such as Ben Hanley, Jules Bianchi and Aaro Vainio.

To its extended range of “racing” type chassis, the make has recently added engines specifically homologated in KF & KZ and called “Maranello”.
