Micro Max driver Kian Burnard has been named the Wera Tools Driver of the Day from Event 7 of the 2023 British Kart Championships, at Larkhall.
Burnard was nominated by the panel of judges, along with a driver from each of the remaining classes thanks to their on-track performance, sporting act or overcoming adversity. Each karter was in line to scoop the coveted Wera Tools Trophy and Wera Tools prizes, whilst Motorsport UK will supplement the prize with a free test day at a BKC venue in 2023 or 2024. The winner was decided by a public online poll.
The judges nominated the youngster at the weekend, commenting: “Kian had a decent day on Saturday, qualifying 3rd and taking two top 4 finishes in his heats but came alive on Sunday. Won the pre final and then went head to head with Jenson Chalk in the final and came out on top in a tight head to head battle on the final lap for his first BKC win”
Burnard will be presented with his trophy at the next round of the Rotax season.
