Easykart UK kicks off ..

this Sunday...

 With just a few days before the start of the new season, tension is mounting at Easykart UK’s headquarters as we count down to the first race.

More than 100 entries, grids are looking healthy despite the financial situation. And as the drivers sneak in some last minute practice before Sunday (15 March), it looks harder to predict who will emerge on top at the end of the season.

Andy Cox (of ACR) and John Vigor (of Club 100) will be delighted to see a historic grid of Cadets form at the Northamptonshire circuit. Albeit a small one, the field represents an exciting new addition to the Easykart family and is the result of months of hard work and careful liaison with the MSA. With the current economic situation, the Cadet class will surely quickly expand once the word is out.

Twenty two drivers with a single thought: to become the Junior champion. Each faces a tough challenge in a field not short on experience - or talent - this year. With last season’s winner and runner-up - Elliot Rice and Jack Sales - graduating to the Senior class for 2009, there is a raft of drivers capable of taking wins. Whether or not one can assert themselves over their rivals on a regular basis, we will have to wait and see. But that’s the exciting part.

Only Barnaby Pittingale appears to be the clear bookies favourite to wrest Oli George’s crown from him this year. The Londoner has been rapid in testing, despite bringing some pre-season ‘success ballast’ into his switch to the Heavy class. Brian Parias and Kieran McCullough will also fancy their chances. Not least McCullough, who found a rich vein of form in the latter part of last year’s championship.

Terry Langley is back to defend his Light title - but will surely be pressed hard by a strong field consisting of some of the most talented drivers seen since Easykart’s arrival here in 2007. I believe six drivers will have a real shot at the title. But to see who’s got the best chance, you’ll have to go to Whilton.

Roll on Sunday!

If you’re considering making the swap from your current category or starting kart racing, Sunday’s event is a great way to meet the drivers and talk to them about what they enjoy about Easykart and get advice and information from the UK importer, Andy Cox and series promoter, John Vigor .

The action starts from 10:00am at Whilton Mill, near Daventry.Excited? You should be. With just a few days before the start of the new season, tension is mounting at Easykart UK’s headquarters as we count down to the first race.
