Italians Dominate Kart Engineering

To our left is a Parilla motorcycle. Parilla operates under the Italian American Motor Engineering (IAME - The Heart of Kart) company. It is the largest manufacturing of kart engines in the world located in Bergamo, Italy.

Italians excel at the Karting World Championships.

Other Italian chassis constructors include engineering company Tecno (Bologna) which also entered Formula One in the early 1970s, CRG (pictured below),  Birel (Milan),  and Tony Kart (Brescia).

Mechanic Dino Chiesa - associated with CRG -  is known as the world's best kart mechanic.
