KCL Motorsport Club takes part in the British University Karting Championship (BUKC), and after a long summer we are looking forward to another exciting year of racing. The season will start off with testing days on the 19th and 20th of October. Testing days allow new members to obtain their 'racing license', this is an essential step as the BUKC will not allow any driver to race unless they have obtained their license (NO prior experience is required to participating in test days). Only a limited number of drivers can attend test days, so make sure to register your interest as soon as possible.
Following test days, the drivers that obtained their racing license will be part of the KCL Racing Team and will be participating in a tournament consisiting of a qualifiers weekend and 4 subsequent races between November 2021 and early April 20222.
For any further information contact us either through email or by sending us a message on instagram. For more information reguarding the BUKC check out their web-page http://www.bukc.co.uk.
