March marks the start of spring, and the beginning of a brand new summer season of karting. The winter has been a busy time for us behind the scenes, both in the office and out on track. That means plenty of exciting things to tell you about this month as you will see below…
For those who like to compete across a whole season, the Buckmore Park Kart Drivers Club summer season begins this month. The following series are all championships, but one-off entries are also very welcome.
The Iron Man (3*) is a one hour endurance series for drivers with stamina.
The Elite Solo (5*) Our two stroke series for the driver who has been there, done that and is ready to move up to the next challenge. Open to permit holders only. (See link for permit application details.)
Grand Prix League (4*) Our championship for those who prefer a sprint format comprising practice, three heats and a final. This series is run in weight classes and is for experienced drivers.
Six Hour Team Endurance (3*) This series offers excellent value for money and a great social atmosphere. Teams can be from 2-6 drivers and the price is per kart, irrespective of the number of drivers in the team. The series is also an SWS Qualifying race for the Endurance Cup
These championship events invariably sell out, particularly in the summer, so early booking is essential if you want to be sure of competing in the whole championship.
We have plenty of opportunities to race this month. Here is a full list of races with spaces this month.

We can’t tell you more just at this moment, but the covers will come off later this month.
Circuit improvements have kept the crew busy over the recent weeks. The track has been re-surfaced from the start finish line to the start of turn one. This should make for some good lap times as the bump which could unsettle a kart on turn in, has now been eliminated.
A brand new pitlane has also been built for our Elite drivers and owner/drivers who need to access the paddock area.
Further re-surfacing work has been undertaken in the paddock itself to improve the parking situation for racetrucks at busy weekends.
In addition, a fabulous new grandstand has been built adjacent to marshal post 5 (Symes Sweep). This allows spectators to see both ends of the circuit at the same time.
These improvements are just the start, like rust, we at Buckmore never sleep.
