KARTING NO NEW NOSES IN TKM CLASS MSA Formula winner Smith back to karts
Clubman category exempt from rule
MSA Formula race winner Josh Smith will return to karting this year after being unable to find the budget to continue racing in cars.
Smith had Racing Steps Foundation backing last season when he contested the TOCA support category with Fortec Motorsports. He finished 13th in the points, taking one win at Croft.
He will now move to the Formula Kart Stars series, racing as a privateer with his father.
Smith has his eye on winning the title as the champion gets a fully funded drive with Fortec in MSA Formula for 2017.
“It wasn’t like I wanted to come back to karting, I would have loved to have stayed in cars but budget doesn’t allow it so this is a great opportunity for me to get back into cars,” said Smith. “I don’t think it’s a step down, I think it’s a step back to go 10 steps forward.”
