2018 will mark the 23rd anniversary of the legendary ‘FairFX MSA Kartmasters British Kart Grand Prix’. Traditionally held on the first Sunday of August, this event has become THE annual blue-ribbon event on the UK Karting calendar. The event has always been staged at the infamous PF International kart circuit with Trent Valley Kart Club being it’s organiser.
Kartmasters is the largest one-off kart race meeting of the season with drivers challenging for the coverted ‘GP’ plates over the course of the action-packed weekend. Entrants vary in age – from 8 years upwards – and cover several different classes/categories. A full list of the different classes that will be run at the event can be found HERE
In 2018, Kartmasters will be supported by the ‘X30 Mini Kartmasters Trophy’ once again. Introduced as new National categories in January last year, the ever popular X30 Mini class has been well supported at TVKC events so we were keen to include them somehow within the Kartmasters programme. The X30 Mini Kartmasters Trophy has the full backing of the engine manufacturer, IAME. For further details about this support race, click HERE
Many victors have been crowned over the years, some of which have gone on to climb the Motorsport ladder even further….a full list of past Kartmasters winners can be found HERE
In addition to the ‘GP’ plates, there are many other awards and prizes that are handed out over the course of the race weekend. These include special recognition awards, free prize draws and some fabulous trophies – all amounting to a total prize fund of over £15,000 Further details of the Prizes & Trophies that will be awarded at Kartmasters can be found HERE
The FairFX MSA Kartmasters British Kart Grand Prix will be held over 4 days and will attract over 200 drivers. Full timetables and entry lists will be available on here a little closer to the date.
2018 will see the return of Live Streaming – meaning you can watch the event LIVE from you laptop or tablet! The PFi circuit cameras will capture all of the racing action from the track which will then be transmitted to your device in real time.
