MSA unveils scholarship cadet karts

The Motor Sports Association (MSA) will next year provide four cadet karts to clubs in order to create a ‘scholarship’ facility for newcomers to the sport.

The karts form part of the promotional package negotiated by the MSA with engine supplier IAME during the tender process to supply engines for the MSA British Cadet Kart championship. The IAME engine has made a stunning impact on cadet karting in 2013, creating close-fought racing and reducing the disparity between engines.

The MSA is now delighted to be able to offer four scholarship cadet karts complete with IAME engines for use by four karters in club IAME Cadet Championships in 2014. The karts will be supplied by JM Engineering.

The MSA now invites applications from MSA-registered kart clubs for one of the four karts as follows:

  • The application can only be from an MSA-registered club that will be running a club-level championship for IAME Cadet karts in the 2014 season
  • The application should include details of the criteria that will be used in selecting the individual to whom the kart will be granted.

Ben Taylor, MSA Development Director, said: "This is a fantastic initiative. Four deserving youngsters will benefit from a scholarship kart to get them started in cadet racing at club level, and we anticipate that this will be the start of a sustainable programme for many years to come. The MSA has been delighted with the first year of the new cadet engine and we are grateful to IAME for their extensive support and commitment to British karting that has made this promotion possible.”

Full details of the offer and the criteria can be found on the MSA website by clicking here.

Applications should be sent by email to by the end of January 2014.
