Time to Enroll for the UK’s Greatest National Kart Series – The Super One

Registrations are open for the 2015 Super One Series – the only officially sanctioned British and National short circuit championship series in the UK.  IAME Cadets and KZ1 shifters have the huge honour of competing for the highest accolade – an MSA British Championship.  Just look at the previous Super One Cadet winners – Jenson Button, Daniel Wheldon and Lewis Hamilton.  And from 125cc gearbox the UK has produced the likes of Frank Wrathall, Dean Stoneman and Jack Hawksworth who has just signed for a top IndyCar team after a successful rookie year in the series.

The Honda Cadet, MiniMax, Junior Max, Rotax Max, KGP and TKM classes are the official national championships for the UK.  Only this series is permitted to issue the coveted seeded numbers 1 to 10 which are recognised by every MSA club.  And, subject to MSA approval, for the first time the Super One offers a chance to compete for free entries in the X30 Junior and Senior International event with four qualifying rounds incorporated. The Junior Max Academy is also on offer for 2015 with everything included including kart and engine, a truly great way to assure a level playing field.

After a massively exciting 2014 season with 323 unique competitors and a quarter of a million Youtube views of the MotorsTV series, yet to be concluded with the Awards Ceremonies at the Autosport International Racing Car Show, 2015 will commence with some format changes. There will be ten weekends with seven rounds for each class (six for KZ1) and four qualifiers for X30.  All classes except KZ1 will come together for what promises to be an exciting four day showdown at PF International in September. Following the success of our alumni – Enaam Ahmed, Callum Illott, Lando Norris – in the CIK-FIA European and World Championships more and more foreign drivers are attracted to the Series to find out why Britain is the hotspot for karting talent. Similarly in the EuroMax, British drivers like the 2014 champions Harry Webb, Ben Cooper and Martin Pierce who are all current or former S1 champions.  Find the 2015 dates on the Super One Series Calendar tab.

So now is your chance to compete in the biggest and best championship by going on-line to http://superoneseries.com/registration/  and registering for 2015, or download the forms, or enrol at Kartmania.  But remember there is a £5 discount down to £150 for on-line registrations on the Super One website so that is the best and easiest way to register.  Don’t wait if you want to reserve your favourite number as registrations are flowing in already.  Entries, tyre and fuel orders can all be placed and paid on line as well.  Whilst registering drivers should ensure that their nationality and team are given, so they can be added on the timing screens with appropriate flags. All the event dates are also shown on the Super One website and there is optional practice on the Friday each weekend (Thursday at the last round). It need not be expensive, see a breakdown of the costs on the Super One website, click on the Series tab and ‘What does it cost’ http://superoneseries.com/what_does_it_cost_superone_series/

The series congratulates its 2014 champions – the two British Champions – Henry Easthope and Teddy Wilson; the ABkC National Champions Joseph Reilly, Sandy Mitchell, Dean MacDonald, Joe Forsdyke, Arran Mills, Tom Canning and the KGP National champion Mark Litchfield.

The series also thanks its many partners including Stevenage Sheet Metal, TAG-Heuer Timing Systems, JAG Engineering with Rotax and Mojo, Tal-Ko, Dunlop with Anderson CSK, Bridgestone with Zipkart, Maxxis with TKM, ACR – Birel with F.KGP and Vega, JKH, Tillett Seats, Vroom Magazine, MotorsTV, WP Motorsport, the Autosport Racing Car Show, Tillotson carburettors, ABC Design, AST Signs and Koden helmets.  The Series welcomes iZone for 2015.

Extensive TV coverage is to continue on Motors TV in the UK and abroad, franchised to millions of additional viewers across the world.  The prize fund is in excess of £60,000 and the series counts as the qualifier for the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals where the British have had such great success.
