Who is it for?

This is a special event for students who have not yet raced in the BUKC. It is designed to give experience to drivers who have not yet competed in competitive karting before and would like to be part of the team.  

It is designed to get more people in the clubs and societies racing other unis and taking part allowing them to gain experience to compete at a higher level

Where & When?

The event will take place at Whilton mill on the afternoon of Thursday 30th March which is the weekend of the BUKC finals.

The karts are the Sodi RT8 karts which have enough power to get blood pumping but the power is manageable even for the novice driver: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWD_f4RM35w

What is the format?

Teams will be made from 3 drivers driving as a team. 

The format of the race will be a 30 min practice qualifying then an hour and a half race which includes pit stops for driver changes. 

Each team will have to complete a minimum of 3 pit stop. It is down to each team to decide when to pit for the driver changes.

The event will take place on the Whilton Mill's International track - the same layout as we will be using for the whole weekend of the BUKC finals!
