The Motor Sports Association (MSA) and Super One Series have confirmed that the 2013 MSA British Short Circuit Kart Championship title has been transferred from KF2 to the KZ1 125cc gearbox class.
The championship was originally awarded to KF2 (KF Senior) but insufficient entries were received.
The 2013 championship will now comprise three rounds:
May 18-19: Rowrah (Cumbria Kart Club)
June 22-23: Glan Y Gors (Dragon Kart Club)
October 12-13: Shenington (Shenington Kart Racing Club).
John 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.”
