The BUKC is licenced by the UK governing body of motorsport - Motorsport UK
In December 2020, the BUKC became an officially licenced championship under the UK's governing body of motorsport - Motorsport UK.
All competitors must obtain a Motorsport UK K-X Licence to compete in the BUKC.
The K-X Licence is a licence issued by governing body of motorsport - Motorsport UK. It is intended for drivers moving up from indoor karting into high performance arrive-and-drive karting.
Specifically for the BUKC, the K-X Licence sits alongside the existing BUKC race licence system. The BUKC licence system has been in place for the last few years to ensure a minimum standard of driver speed, discipline and awareness so that thet BUKC events can run in a safe and controlled manner.
For the avoidance of doubt; to race in any class of the BUKC you will need a K-X Licence, but to race in the Prems, Clubmans, Inters or Drivers Champ, you will also need a BUKC Race Licence. You do not need a K-X Licence or BUKC Race Licence to practice in the test days.
