Water-cooled engines are introduced in the 100cc categories except for Juniors. The World Championship is held at Braga (PRT). Davide Fore (ITA) wins in Formula Super A, ahead of Franck Perera (FRA) and Heikki Kovalainen (FIN) while Colin Brown (GBR) prevails in Formula A. This same Brown also carries off the Monaco Kart Cup in Formula A while Jérôme d’Ambrosio (BEL) is the fastest Junior. Further to a restructuring of the CIK-FIA Championships, the last true 125cc World Championship is organised at Mariembourg (BEL) and sees Gianluca Beggio (ITA) land his fifth supreme title in this gearbox kart category. Lewis Hamilton (GBR) treats himself to a fine double in Formula A by winning both the World Cup held at Motegi (JPN) and the European Championship. Mario Siegers (NLD) becomes the European Champion in Super A, Francesco Laudato (ITA) in Formula C and Michaël Ammermüller (DEU) in Junior.
