WORKS PRIZE DRIVE FOR MSA CHAMPIONS
Winners of revived series to get drive in CIK-FIA event
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.
