Karting championship makes Ferry welcome return

The cream of British karting will be converging at Nutt’s Corner this summer for the fourth round of the British Karting Championship sponsored by leading ferry company Stena Line.

Hundreds of competitors and enthusiasts from across the UK will be coming across on the Stena HSS from Stranraer for the event which takes place on August 24 and 25 at Nutt’s Corner Motorsports Centre in County Antrim.

This is the fifth year in which Stena Line has sponsored the event. Head of Marketing Paul Grant said: “Stena Line has always supported local sport and it is great to see the return of the British Karting Championship to Northern Ireland after a three year absence.

“Karting is a very popular sport in Northern Ireland and this is highlighted by the fact that we have four champions competing in this year’s event. Let’s hope that when they get down to racing, it’ll be plain sailing for our home-grown talent."

More commonly known as the Elf Hill House Hammond Super 4 Series, the Championship features both the 125cc and 250cc classes, including the 160mph 250cc Formula E karts, and for the first time in Northern Ireland, the Junior Gearbox class. (MB)
