X30 Tour Offer Trade-in Program

Organisers of the new IAME X30 Tour say the launch of a trade-in program which enables drivers to reduce the cost of buying the new engine will provide an incentive to compete on a packed grid this year.

The new X30 senior class has over 23 registrations, with grids capped at 32 drivers throughout the season. The junior class has 15 racers signed up. Some Rotax drivers can receive up to £700 off the cost of the new X30 unit.

“We want to help those drivers and families who can’t switch engines due to finances and who are tied up in equipment,” said promoter James Mills. “It provides an incentive to join the class which has had positive reviews and grids have been building at recent rounds at Kimbolton and Shenington. I expect a full senior grid at the opening round of the year.”

Let The Game Begin

The StreetKart racing game has received a boost with the announcement that it is to be published by a major company.

Developer Ross Grayle Jones says “I am delighted to announce that we have signed a major publishing deal with one of the world’s largest games companies. At this stage I am not at liberty to announce with whom, however, I should be soon able to provide you with details.

“We are currently beta testing the game with real karters, and getting some great feedback.

“Our launch is now in the hands of our publishers who will guide us to launch, but it means that we’ll have considerable marketing clout and your brand will surely be noticed by millions of racers from around the world, with Street Kart having the chance to be the hottest racing game on iOS.

“We have now begun raising funding for SK2 and hope you will continue on this journey with us, which will make an even better, more exciting game than the first.”

Easykart Competition Boosts Grids

Organisers of the Easykart championship say its popular cadet competition has boosted grid numbers for this season’s series.

Launched at the start of last year, a mix of six indoor and outdoor venues around the UK will be tasked with putting forward three drivers each to the assessment day at Whilton Mill in August. After driving during the day, the youngsters, all between eight and ten years old will then be interviewed by series bosses before a winner is selected. The victor will be awarded a new 60cc Easykart cadet machine along with a full season’s racing in the championship.

“Last year’s competition proved very popular and was a resounding success,” Easykart’s John Vigor said. “All the drivers are put forward as being the most improved from each venue. We found last year that the competition generated sales for Easykart which will boost this year’s grids and provide better racing. I’m excited for that to follow through to next year’s racing too.”

Racers Give Super One Winter Cup The Cold Shoulder

A lack of interest from competitors has forced the Super One Winter Cup to be cancelled.

TVKC and Super One have apologised to the competitors who entered the Winter Cup, which was to be held at PF International on 8th-9th March, but insufficient overall support was shown and the meeting had to be cancelled.

The organisation claims this in no way impinges on the anticipation building up before the first rounds of the Super One Series.

There is still time to register for the only MSA recognised short circuit British and National championships and best way is to do it is online at superoneseries.com website.
