The MSA is pleased to announce that karters Joseph Taylor and Alex Simmonds will represent the UK in the CIK-FIA Karting Academy Trophy.

The pair have big shoes to fill with last year’s representative Callum Bradshaw winning the championship.

Twelve-year-old Taylor was 2015 Formula Kart Stars Cadet Champion and finished second in last year’s MSA British Cadet Kart Championship.

Meanwhile 13-year-old Simmonds put in an impressive performance in last year’s British Cadet Championship and earlier this year won at PFI amongst a field of over 60 Junior X30 drivers.

The MSA also nominated 13-year-old Alicia Barrett to be considered for the FIA Women in Motorsport Commission Academy Trophy entry.

The world renowned three-round championship kicks off in Genk, Belgium on the 14 May, before rounds in Le Mans (France) and Alahärmä (Finland).
