MSA awards IAME scholarship to four kart clubs

The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has selected the four kart clubs that will receive a brand new IAME-engined 'scholarship' cadet kart in 2014.

In December, kart clubs were requested to submit proposals detailing how they would use the karts and the MSA received a total of eight applications from across the country. After careful consideration of each of the submissions, the panel selected Clay Pigeon Kart Club, Dunkeswell Kart Racing Club, Manchester and Buxton Kart Club and North of Ireland Karting Association to receive the karts.

The karts form part of the promotional package negotiated by the MSA with engine supplier IAME during the tender process to supply engines for the MSA British Cadet Kart championship. The IAME engine made a stunning impact on cadet karting in 2013, creating close-fought racing and significantly reducing the disparity between engines.

The karts will now create a fantastic opportunity for novice karters within the four clubs and the MSA will conduct a similar selection process later this year to identify a further four clubs to join the scholarship programme.

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive said:
"This exciting award is about more than just putting a scholarship kart in the hands of four deserving youngsters for the forthcoming season. It is a great demonstration of the MSA's support of club karting and our determination to provide initiatives that encourage the clubs and the sport to bring more people to the fun and excitement of karting. I would like to thank IAME for making possible this programme that has the potential to become a significant long-term opportunity for young karters. We look forward to following the progress of the first recipients of these karts, both this year and in the future."
