Edgar's Hyundai MSA British Junior Kart Championship

 Round 1: PF International, 22 April

Reigning CIK-FIA European KF3 Champion George Russell took the early British Championship lead with a pair of victories in the season-opener at PFI.

Russell dominated the first Final on a slippery track after pulling away from Croatian Martin Kodric. Alex Gill initially slipped from the front row to fourth place but clawed his way past former MSA British Cadet Kart Champion Nathan Aston to finish third.

Russell made a great start in the second Final but with a few laps to go Gill nipped past to take the lead. However, two laps later Russell found his way back in front to collect his second win of the weekend.
