THE CHAMPIONSHIPS

At the heart of the BUKC are the Team Championships. Teams of 4 drivers race together and do battle against other universities on the finest fleet of “arrive-and-drive” karts and at some of the best race tracks in the country.

THE KARTS

The karts used in the BUKC are simply the finest fleet of “arrive-and-drive” karts in the world. They are nothing like the normal indoor or outdoor karts that many are used to.

This is a proper racing fleet which can accelerate from 5 to 60mph in 4.5 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 70mph. If you have never been in a “2-stroke” kart before, you’ll never forget your first time!

 
Top Speed:

70mph

 
5-60:

4.5s

 
Weight:

107kg


THE CHAMPIONSHIPS

 

Teams can enter into one of two championships in the BUKC: The Main Championship or the Rookie Championship.

The Main Championship

The Main Championship is the heart of competitive racing in the BUKC with a format designed to test driving skill and team work as well.

The Rookie Championship

The Rookie Championship is for teams who are new to the BUKC or who don’t yet have the experience to qualify for the Main Championship. The format of the racing is more relaxed and maximised for the safety of the many new drivers and teams each year.

THE PARTY

 

Every year the BUKC ends with a huge party in a marquee at the race track hosting the 3 day BUKC finals weekend. It’s the time to celebrate your successes on the race track and let your hair down. It’s always an awesome event. Here are some photos from years gone by:
