The MSA have confirmed that this year’s MSA British Championship class will be KZ1 run under the Super One Championship. KF’s complete and utter failure to make the British Championship an attractive proposition has forced the MSA to reconsider the championship class. The recent KZ1 edition to Super One presented the only viable option for the MSA.
ohn Hoyle, Super One Series promoter, said: “After we discovered there were insufficient entries in the KF2 class we were forced to consider alternatives and I am delighted to say that the MSA has agreed to it being the KZ1 class. This should be a huge boost for gearbox karting in the UK following the great popularity this purist class has had on the continent, and we invite anyone interested to register without delay.”
Colin Hilton, MSA Chief Executive and Kart Committee Chairman, added: “The MSA is delighted that the British Short Circuit Kart Championship title will now be awarded to the KZ1 class this year. These are difficult times for KF2 but in KZ1 we have a competitive and well-supported category that is worthy of the UK’s premier karting title.”
The KZ1 MSA British Championship will take place over three rounds
18 & 19 May 2013 – Rowrah
22 & 23 June 2013 – Glan Y Gors
12 & 13 October 2013 – Shenington
Most importantly the class will use yellow number plates with black numbers.
