Having the tyre temperature and pressure data under control is essential (as you can read in the articles "Expert Advice | The right pressure for kart tyres? Pascal Cardinale tells us how to achieve it” and “Expert Advice | Practical advice on what and how to best manage the temperature of kart tyres”).

Alfano, a company based in Nivelles (Belgium) has been operating in the motorsport industry since 1996 and is known for manufacturing and marketing tools for kart data acquisition.

However, it does not appear to be a popular tool, being confirmed by just one team among those considered.
