The MSA British Kart Championship classes
These classes run to the same format, timed qualifying to determine the grid positions for the heats, then heats to determine the grid position for the final (with a repechage last chance race if necessary to find the last four places on the final grid). Points are given in the heats, the repechage and the final. The top ten drivers are then awarded a ‘seeded’ number to use everywhere until the end of the following year’s championship. These are the only short circuit MSA British Championships although the international CIK class KF Junior is also offered, subject to sufficient entries, and is the MSA Junior British Championship.
MSA IAME British Cadet Championship
(Grade A Championship)
8 – 13 years of age
Cadets are for 8 to 13 year olds, and the specially approved mini-chassis (not restricted to British makes) use an IAME 60cc Parilla Gazelle UK engine. However to enter this British Championship the driver must be an experienced 9 year old. The engine is not sealed and has been chosen for the premier Cadet category during 2012. The new class commenced racing on 1 January 2013 at kart clubs. Tyres are from Dunlop and plates are yellow with black numbers. The best ten drivers are awarded ‘seeded’ numbers to use everywhere in the UK until the end of the following year’s championship.
