Higgins to contest Super One

Former British Rally champion David Higgins has confirmed that he is aiming to contest a full year in the Super One kart championship in 2010 as he continues to develop the talents of his karting protégé Luke Hughes.

Higgins has always been a firm believer in the benefits of karting to a motorsport career, and is already contesting multiple kart events this year alongside a full time attack on the Chinese Rally Championship.

"I mainly do it for fun and as a good way to keep your skills sharp between rallies, but I still like to win and be on the best kart possible," said Higgins.

"Luke and myself have done a deal to drive the new Arrow X1 kart this year, with the help of Walker Racing. The kart is not commonly used in the UK yet, but we have direct contact with the factory for support."

Higgins has worked with Hughes for a few years now, seeing him through multiple Cadet Championships, before he made the step up to MiniMax last year.

"Luke is using the new kart to good effect in the Formula Kart Stars championship this year, where he is lying fourth in the MiniMax class," Higgins added.

"I used it for the first time at Whilton Mill recently. With very little time in it we were on the same pace as the frontrunners. We're very impressed with both the kart's performance and the factory input."

Higgins and Hughes are planning to do the O Plate event at Shenington in September, and to do the full Super One championship next year if it fits around the Chinese Rally Championship calendar which David has already committed himself to.
