Formula Kart Stars has today announced that the top 3 finishers in 2016 in the Cadet (8-10) and Super Cadet (10-12) category will win a free entry to the SKUSA Supernationals event in Las Vegas. The prize includes flights and accommodation for the driver and one parent. It’s known as one of the most glamorous karting events with the legendary hotels and casinos forming the back drop to the make shift circuit.
The 2015 event saw a string of FKS drivers go out to the Supernationals with FKS drivers Max Dodds and Joseph Taylor competing in the Benik Team. Unfortunately, their weekends didn’t go to plan but their teammate and recently signed 2016 FKS driver Jonny Edgar took the title in dramatic fashion.
With FKS guaranteeing their best six Cadet drivers will be entered for the 2016 event, there’s a very good chance Britain might be able to retain the title for the first time.
On the announcement FKS Managing Director Sebastian King commented:
“Formula Kart Stars has a long history of driver exchanges in the USA, and it is really exciting to revive this in 2016 through the Vegas SuperNats. I am very confident one of the 6 FKS drivers will bring back the silverware again at the end of this season.”
The 2016 Formula Kart Stars UK Championship kicks off on the weekend of the 8-10th April at Buckmore Park. The Championship will once again be broadcast on Sky Sports F1.
