The Motorsport UK Wera Tools British Kart Championships are excited to announce the KZ2 calendar for the season ahead, as the series reveals a new-look roster for 2023.

The fastest Short Circuit FIA category in the UK will do battle over five rounds, with new venues introduced to the KZ2 billing. Following feedback received from championship competitors, next season will also see an adjustment to the format, offering additional Practice on Fridays and the introduction of a Pre-Final, bolstering an action-packed season of competition.

The popular Kimbolton circuit kicks off the season for the rapid racers in May followed by a trip to GYG (Glan Y Gors) in June. July sees the trip to Shenington followed by a welcome calendar comeback to Rowrah, with the season finale just one week later at Warden Law.
