Whether you wish to progress a career in motorsport or enjoy the great family atmosphere at 250 plus club events each year, KartSport offers exciting and affordable motorsport for everyone to enjoy. There are KartSport classes to suit anyone from 6 years to 66 years.
For the sake of clarity, If there is only one participant in a class and he or she has met the criteria of the Championship Rules, he or she will be the Club Champion in that class and should not be disadvantaged due to lack of other competitors.
Club Trophies will be awarded to all Junior Classes and Keepsake Trophies awarded to the top three competitors in each class. The committee reserves the right to award Keepsake trophies through to 6th place for Junior Competitors at it’s discretion.
Club Trophies will be awarded to all Senior Classes. The committee will also consider Keepsake Trophies for Senior Classes if there is demand.
Trophies will be awarded at the end of year November Prize Giving that will follow completion of the November Club Day.
Club Trophies may be taken home but must be returned to the Club by the following February Club Day. They must remain in the Club’s possession from February until the next Prize Giving. The reasons for this are for engraving purposes and importantly to ensure winners actually receive their trophy at the next Prize Giving.
In determining the award of trophies, consideration and reference of the Clubs listed ‘Values’ have been considered.
The Clubs Values are:
The Club Championship Prize Giving & the Xmas function will be held following the completion of the final round on the 25th November. All members, officials, sponsors and families are warmly encouraged to attend.
As we are all aware Tyres can be an expensive part of Karting.
If any particular class is in full agreement, they may at their own discretion implement their own tyre policy over the Club Championship series.
For Example if Junior Rotax Max unaminously wish to restrict the number of sets of tyres over the 7 rounds then it is up to them to set and police their own policy. There will be no recourse on the committee to any disputes.
This year, with the exception of the Ray Wilson and Johnny Harrison Trophy’s, all Club Enduro Championships will all be held on October 28th Club Day.

The Ray Wilson Memorial Senior GP will be run on the 29th April 2018.
