Here’s the statement from the MSA, we’ll be back when possible with details of the KF2 engine etc:
The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is delighted to announce that Super One Series Ltd has won a tender process to promote the MSA British Kart, Junior Kart and Cadet Kart Championships.
Super One has run the MSA British Kart and Junior Kart Championships successfully for several years. It will now add the MSA British Cadet Kart Championship to its roster, promoting all three MSA British titles for five years from 1 January 2013.
Rob Jones, MSA General Secretary and Kart Committee Chairman, said: “This is a very important time for UK karting, particularly with the introduction of the new MSA British Cadet Kart Championship engine, the IAME Parilla Gazelle 60cc UK. The MSA is therefore very pleased that Super One, with its successful background, is to take on the promotion of these championships on behalf of the MSA.
“The MSA would like to take this opportunity to express its sincere gratitude and appreciation to Carolynn Hoy and Formula Kart Stars for their great work over the years in building up the MSA British Cadet Kart Championship.”
It has also been confirmed that Super One will run the new MSA National Comer Cadet Kart Championship for three years from 1 January 2013, although this championship will not be part of the same package as the three British titles.
John Hoyle, boss of Super One, added: “Super One is delighted not only to continue running the MSA British Kart and Junior Kart Championships but also to be entrusted with the MSA British Cadet Kart and National Comer Cadet Kart Championships from 2013. We are excited for the future, with new plans for cost control and even more support for competitors, who we believe will also benefit from a single promoter.”
