King karter Kirk Cattermole has added another championship crown to his collection.

The speed demon landed the prestigious UK Cup at the 1.8 mile Bishopcourt Circuit near Downpatrick in Northern Ireland to add to the English Championship trophy that he recently won in the 125 Open gearbox class.

Kirk qualified second but was forced to start the second heat at the back of the pack having suffered an engine seizure in the first.

However, he stormed through to victory and claimed pole position in the all important decider.

In an exhilarating finale, where the lead changed on numerous occasions, Kirk eventually took the chequered flag by a mere 0.009 of a second.

Kirk’s next outing is at Oulton Park on October 3rd.

He would like to thank his sponsors PFP Services, Magnum Motorsport, Cat Racing Services and Joe Worsfold.
