GRADS CHAMP

For those who've left the BUKC and want to continue racing!

 

BUKC GRADS CHAMP

 

Following on from the success of the inaugural 2017 Grads Champ, the BUKC Grads Champ returns for 2018 and takes place over 5 race days between the start of May 2018 and the end of October 2018.

The championship is for teams of between 2 and 4 drivers (though we recommend a max of 3 drivers).

The dates for the 5 round championship are as follows:

  • Sun 6th May - Rye House, Herts
  • Sun 3rd June - Whilton Mill, Northamptonshire
  • Sun 1st July - Buckmore Park, Kent
  • Sun 5th Aug - Lydd, Kent
  • Sun 7th Oct - Whilton Mill, Northamptonshire

All drivers competing in the BUKC Grads Champ 2018 must have graduated in 2014 or later.

More of this yey!
