British Championships head to Nutts Corner

THE next two weekends are action packed in kart racing circles and kick off this Saturday at Kirkistown for the prestigious K plate meeting.

The big one though is when British Championship kart racing returns to Nutts Corner Circuit next weekend when the UK and Ireland’s top drivers take on the second round of the MSA championship, in karting circles known as the Super One series.

In the run up to the Super One meeting on May 28-29, locals were in hot action recently the circuit in the most recent round of the Ulster Cup series.

In the case of the Cadets classes they were very keen to show off their skills, especially as the class will provide support racing to the Super One round.

In the Honda Cadet class, Ballymoney’s Chris Doherty took an excellent fifth last time out and that was enough to put him into fourth overall in the Ulster Cup. Karting is a family sport and Philip Doherty also had a good run to finish ninth which puts him well inside the top ten.

Coleraine’s Martin Culbertson also had a strong run in the Pro kart class and a seventh on the day also secured him a top ten overall.

Portstewart’s Andrew Lynch had a good run in heats and after moving into the class fairly recently will no doubt be keen to build on that in future meetings.

Practice for the British championship event at Nutts Corner Circuit starts on Friday, May 28 with heats the next day and finals on May 30.
