Double Champions Hackett & Boutens Return
Since the inception of BRKC in 2010, only two drivers have won the championship more than once. Lee Hackett was triumphant in 2012 & 2013 during the ‘multi-round’ incarnation of BRKC. In 2014 & 2015 it was Dutchman Ruben Boutens who claimed the overall victory. In 2016, the pair will meet on track for the first time since the 2013 Kart World Championship in Denmark.
Although Hackett has had a low key absence from BRKC, he is sure to be back on the pace quickly, having finished as the top British driver in the 2013 World Championship. Boutens on the other hand has been busy winning multiple international titles including the Dutch Kart Championship and the Dutch Red Bull Kart Fight – and is sure to be a force to be reckoned with.
The battle between these two giants of rental karting – as well as many more big names – will be fascinating to watch when BRKC 2016 gets started on the 15th of January.
