JAG Engineering, the UK authorised distributor for Rotax Kart products, have offered their support to The Max Series for the inaugural running of the series which is due to kick off at Kimbolton on 13th April.
“The aim of The Max Series is to give competitors a challenge within club racing, with events at different circuits, for an affordable budget. Ultimately, we aim to boost Karting at its grass roots level, and see a great opportunity to bring exciting, challenging, and cost effective racing to centrally based circuits,” the organisers say.
Categories catered for will be Minimax, Junior Rotax, Senior Rotax, Rotax 177 and Rotax 177 Masters.
Registration for the series costs ££99, and there will be a restriction of 34 entries per category, to ensure that all competitors gain from enough track time at each event. Please note that once we receive 34 entries for each category they will close, and no more entries will be taken for the series.

New Chairman Elected For The BSA
John Dickinson has been elected as the Chairman of the British Superkart Association (BSA) following the resignation of Rob Willshire after a three-year tenure.
John has raced at the highest level in Superkarts and also in the past has raced in Formula 3000 (GP2 is the modern equivalent). nJohn has been an avid support of the sport and has supported the championships via his Euroconcept organisation.
The new chairman said “Following the AGM I was immediately involved when the open discussion started and from the voices on the floor I can see it’s going to be a challenging position. A few of the points discussed were related to promoting the sport, improving the grids by encouraging new drivers into long circuit racing as well as safety issues. We are going to address some of these subjects through the driver reps and getting their feedback on TV coverage and how we create revenue to pay for the coverage will be very appreciative.”
UK Kart Parts Now Wizz Karts
UK Kart Parts have changed their name to Wizz Karts and relaunched. The company owners were the founders of Zoom Karts in 1996 and launched UK Kart Parts last year but the company name was easily confused with Kart Parts UK. So the owners have re-launched as Wizz Karts. They stock all the leading brands and you can order online at www. wizzkarts.com
