Motor Sport News - - Karting - By Stephen Lick­o­r­ish Pho­tos: kart­

The MSA Bri­tish Ju­nior and Se­nior kart cham­pi­ons will get a fully funded drive in the CIK-FIA World Cham­pi­onships this year.

The ti­tle win­ners of the re­launched cat­e­gories will each get a drive with ei­ther Tony Kart or Kos­mic Rac­ing – the works Vor­tex teams – in the event at Sakhir in Bahrain in Novem­ber.

The se­ries’ en­gine sup­plier OTK will fund the race en­try, a me­chanic, flights and ac­com­mo­da­tion.

More de­tails have also been an­nounced about the re­vived cham­pi­onships. The Ju­nior se­ries will use the Vor­tex DDJ en­gine, while the Se­nior cat­e­gory will use the DDS mo­tor. Both are Cik-ho­molo­gated.

“Th­ese are some of the most ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ments in UK kart­ing for many years,” said Rob Jones, MSA chief ex­ec­u­tive. “For the first time since 2012 we will have non-gear­box MSA Bri­tish Ju­nior and Se­nior Kart Cham­pi­onships, both with en­gines and tyres that will help con­trol costs while en­sur­ing great rac­ing.

“The prize pack­age presents the chance to cre­ate both MSA Bri­tish and CIK-FIA World cham­pi­ons in the space of just four race meet­ings.”

The cham­pi­onships will be pro­moted by the Su­per One Se­ries and will run over three rounds, with dates to be an­nounced soon.
