The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has issued draft technical regulations for a new Super Cadet kart class, which is planned for introduction in 2011.
The regulations – which are subject to change following evaluation tests – have been issued so as to assist potential manufacturers, teams and competitors with their design and preparation work.
The MSA also confirms that it has reached agreement with Deutscher Motor Sport Bund (DMSB), the German ASN, to homologate karts jointly. This means that chassis that are presented to either ASN will be acceptable both for the UK Super Cadet class and the respective German class.
MSA Chief Executive Colin Hilton said: “This new intermediate class is an important development in safeguarding young competitors among whom there can be wide disparity in size and weight. The decision to publish draft technical regulations has been taken in the interests of all parties that are considering involvement in the Super Cadet class next year. We are also delighted to be working closely with our colleagues in the DMSB on this issue.”

The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is the national governing body for four-wheeled motor sport in the UK, responsible for the regulation and administration of the sport. The MSA is a member of the world governing body, the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and holds a seat on the World Motor Sport Council. The MSA represents 33,000 licence holders, 15,000 volunteer marshals and officials, more than 750 member clubs and issues permits for 5000 motor sport events every year.
In recent years the MSA has expanded its remit to cover the development of the sport and currently invests in excess of £1m a year in the three elements of its Whole Sport Plan. ‘Grow’ targets an increase in participation levels, ‘Sustain’ invests in the infrastructure of the sport, its clubs and its people, and ‘Excel’ focuses on training future world champions and educating their peers.
