The premier karting series in the UK will be returning for the final round of the Rotax and Honda Championships this weekend (18 – 20 December) at Whilton Mill Kart Track, Northampton.
The final British Kart Championship event of the year was postponed in November because of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide lockdown. However, the return of the elite-sporting event promises to host some of the most competitive racing to date as the championship prepares to crown the remaining British title winners of 2020.
The mighty drivers of the Honda Cadet class will be back racing to try and win the British Kart Championship title. Zac Drummond leads ahead of Ewan Charman and Connor Duncan and less than 20 points separate the three drivers.
After winning every final this year, Harry Linden head to the final this weekend with a 38-point lead ahead of his closest rival Steven Duncan in the Mini Max class. Linden will be attempting to make it four out of four wins and claim the coveted British title for the first time. Mackenzie Douglas, currently in third place in the championship battle, will likely challenge Duncan to the runner-up trophy as only 14 points separate them.
The battle for the Junior Rotax British Kart Championship title is a little closer. Coles Motorsport’s Callum Voisin leads the battle for the championship battle, despite not winning a race this year. However, his consistent performances throughout the year means that he currently sits two points ahead of Mattie Hingley and nine points ahead of Matthew Higgins in the fight to be crowned the winner. The three talented, young drivers are each within touching distance of the title and it’s sure to be an exciting weekend of racing to see who will be crowned British Kart Champion.
Argenti Motorsport’s formidable young driver Morgan Porter leads the 2020 British Kart Champion in the Senior Rotax class after appearing on the podium during each round this year. However, Tom Edmunds and Nelson King and Kai Hunter will not give up the series spoils that easy. The four-way tussle for the title will come to a head this weekend at Whilton Mill – whoever comes out on top will claim the coveted title.
Only 10 points separate Oliver Appleby, Matthew Easton and Henry Ayres in the championship standings in the Rotax 177 class. The small but ultra-competitive class will take to the Northampton-based track on Saturday and Sunday to see who will be crowned king.
All the swashbuckling action from the event will be live streamed on the British Kart Championship Facebook and Alpha Live YouTube on both Saturday and Sunday. Alternatively, stay up to date with the live timing, available on our website, www.britishkartchampionships.co.uk
