The fight for prize drives in the CIK-FIA World Championships kicks off this weekend (3-4 June) when this year’s MSA British Kart and Junior Kart Championships get under way at Clay Pigeon.

Promoted by Super One Series, the six-round/three-weekend championship also visits Shenington on 26-27 August and PF International on 8-10 September.

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “Together with key figures from within karting, we pulled out all the stops to offer competitors a fabulous prize package: full factory supported prize drives in the CIK-FIA World Championships; tours at leading teams including Mercedes F1; TAG Heuer watches; Koden helmets and more.

“We look forward not only to crowning our MSA British Champions at PFI, but also to seeing them in action when the CIK-FIA World Championships visit the same great track on 22-24 September.”
