WORLD CLASS PEDIGREE
With a pedigree stretching back over 36 years Super One has been the nursery of so many top line prodessional motor racing drivers, too many to list but including David Coulthard, Jason Plato, Dario Franchitti, Daniel Wheldon, Anthony Davidson and of course the dream team of Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton as well as team personnel at the highest level. Super One is Britains largest Karting Championship.
SUPER ONE ENTERED IT’S 37th YEAR OF OPERATION IN 2018
The longest standing national motor racing championship, administrated by the same team, Super One was founded back in 1983. Highlights from the first Super One round held at Snetterton included Andrew Clark taking the inaugural 100 Senior Britain spoils whilst Paul Fletcher took a 100 National front row position, but lost the win when he came off at the first corner. Daughter Nicky Fletcher came third. Jeremy Cotterill won the Junior International class whilst Touring Car ace Jason Plato was fifth.
It is a very competitive championship that continually produces world class drivers. Providing facilities that are to International CIK level Super One provides a level of competition not found at club meetings or championships running alongside club meetings.
Super One is the Premier Karting Championship, run by professionals who ensure quality racing on a level playing field. Super One were the first Championship series to introduce Unilog clutch checking in Rotax which sorted all the contentious issues in this area. Onboard video cameras were added in 2010 to try and reduce the amount of unfair incidents and to ensure a fair outcome.
Super One is always looking at ways to raise the profile of the drivers taking part in the series and You Tube coverage will continue to play a big part. When the Motors TV championship ran a couple of years ago several drivers were approached by companies who had seen them on the little screen and sponsorships were offered. One example was Joe Boullen who received a £5000 sponsorship deal and went on to race in Euromax where he was immediately recognised by the other drivers because they’d seen him on Motors TV. The Super One Series is recognised throughout the world for its competitive edge and professionalism.
