MSA confirms Vega tyres for British Kart Championships

LinkedIn +

Britain’s Motor Sports Association (MSA) has confirmed that Vega will continue to supply tires to the MSA British Junior and Senior Kart Championships in 2017.

The Junior Championship (OKJ Vortex) will run Vega’s XH (option) tire and the Senior Championship (OK Vortex) will use the XP tire – both models are newly CIK-homologated. The wet tire for both championships will continue to be the CIK-homologated Vega W5.

Vega has not changed the retail prices of these tires but the cost to UK competitors has been affected by currency fluctuations, which the UK importer is obliged to continue monitoring.

“The MSA is delighted to continue its association with Vega and ACR Limited for the 2017 MSA British Junior and Senior Kart Championships,” explained Rob Jones, MSA chief executive. “Sporting initiatives such as the OK Vega Trophy Race at Shenington and subsidised tyre prices for the TVKC Winter Series were well received. Similar initiatives are in the pipeline for 2017.”
