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 RS Clubman Licence to compete in the BUKC.
WHAT IS AN RS CLUBMAN LICENCE?
The RS Clubman 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 RS Clubman 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 the 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 RS Clubman 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 RS Clubman Licence or BUKC Race Licence to practice in the test days.
