Lincolnshire’s PF International circuit will host next year’s CIK-FIA World Junior & Senior Kart Championships on 22-24 September 2017, subject to ratification by the FIA World Motor Sport Council.

Trent Valley Kart Club (TVKC) has said it will start planning immediately for the organisational challenge of running the world’s premier karting event. The club also said it hoped the rest of UK karting will support the occasion by avoiding clashes during the world championship weekend.

“The whole team at TVKC and the legendry PF International kart circuit are delighted to be awarded the 2017 CIK-FIA World Championships, said Nigel Edwards, TVKC chairman. “It is just reward for their past efforts in bringing CIK-FIA karting to the UK and also for the strides made by the PFI circuit and management, all of which has been with the help and support of the MSA.

“UK karting organisers and officials are the envy of the world and this event will allow us to showcase all that is good about our sport,” he continued. “We hope that UK kart officials and marshals will turn out in force to assist with the organisation and be part of this magical moment in UK karting history.”
