The British Superkart Association and the British Superkart Racing Club have won the tender process for the British Superkart Grand Prix and the MSA British Superkart Championship.
The MSA launched tender processes in July for the championship and grand prix with the deadline being 8 August. The award means the BSA and the Club will continue to act as promoters for a further period of five years from 1 January 2013.
BSA Chairman Rob Willshire said: "“We are delighted that the MSA has chosen the BSA to continue running the MSA British Superkart Championship. The Superkart discipline now has a stable platform for the next five years, and we look forward to using that platform to develop the sport and the championship.”
Ian Rushforth, Competition Manager for the British Superkart Racing Club, said: “As the lead club in the BSA we are immensely proud to be given the opportunity of promoting the MSA British Superkart GP for a further five years. With over 30 years under its belt the event is without doubt one of the sport's great occasions and we look forward to even greater success going forward.”
Rob Jones, MSA General Secretary and Kart Committee Chairman, added: “The BSA and BSRC have done a great job as the current MSA British Superkart Championship and Grand Prix promoters, and following very strong tender proposals the MSA is confident that they will continue to ensure that Superkarting goes from strength to strength.”
One possibility of promotion is further TV coverage. The Motors TV channel covered both the MSA Championship and the British Superkart Grand Prix this year.
