Regular open hire kart races for individual drivers

In this panel you will find races for individual drivers. There are sprint races (practice, heats & a final) or endurance races (qualifying and one non-stop race).

1* event

This event takes place on the shorter National Circuit - hence the title - and consists of a short practice for each driver, a series of three point scoring heats for every competitor and then finals with grid positions based on the points earned during the heats.

Up to 14 drivers will be on track together in each race. 

This event is the ideal place for a new driver to start. It is a level 1 event and not too daunting for a new driver.

2* event As the name suggests, this event takes place on the full International Circuit. Each driver will enjoy a period of free practice before the racing begins. Then each contender will race in three point scoring heats from a variety of starting points on the grid. After the heats have been completed the points are totalled and there are finals for the top point scorers. Trophies are awarded to the firs three across the finish line in the main A final.

Up to 16 drivers will be on track together in any race.  

This event is level 2 rated and is a great next step up from the level 1 National Sprint.

This is also a Championship series and has weight classes. One off entries are welcome

This sprint event is for the drivers with the most experience. It is run as a championship from March to October. It is also run in two weight classes - lightweight = drivers up to 85kg: Heavyweight = drivers 85kg and above - Both weight classes share the track, but trophies are presented per class. 

Up to 18 karts (mixed weight class) will be on the grid for each race.

Although this is a Championship, every race is open to one-off entries. 

The format is practice, three point scoring heats and a final. Championship trophies are also presented. 

This series is aimed at the most experienced racers. If you are not sure, then enter the level 2 International Sprint which takes place on the same night and you can then judge for yourself as the events run concurrently.

This race is our entry level 'endurance' race for individual drivers. It is a level 1 race designed to suit a novice driver. The format consists of a ten minute practice session, which also acts as qualifying for grid position. The karts are then lined up on the grid in best lap order and the lights go green to start the non-stop thirty minute race. 

Up to 35 karts may be on track at once. 

Trophies are awarded to the first three home at the chequered flag.

For those growing in both experience and stamina the 45 Solo is a perfect step-up from the 30 Solo. The format is the same, qualifying and one non-stop race, but as the title implies, the race lasts for 45 minutes. 

Up to 35 karts will be competing for the trophies. 

Trophies are awarded to the top three finishers. This is a level 2 event suitable for those with limited experience.

The Iron Man is not for the feint hearted. The race is a non-stop hour long race with up to 35 karts chasing the trophies. A ten minute qualifying period precedes the race.

This level 3 series is aimed at drivers who already have a fair bit of experience.

Although this series is a championship, one-off entries are more than welcome.

The series runs from March to October and the best six scores out of eight rounds will count toward the championship.

Superb Championship trophies are presented at the Annual Award Ceremony and dinner each year.

 

60 Solo

This level 2 race series is run between November and February each year to fill the gap between Iron Man championship seasons.

The format is the same as the Iron Man, ten minutes of qualifying followed by a one race for solo drivers, but being level 2 rated and non-championship, it is less intense and ideal for drivers with less experience. It makes a good next step up from the 45 Solo. 

Up to 35 karts may be on track at once. 

Trophies are awarded to the top three finishers

This is a championship series and is run in weight classes. It is also a qualifier for the Sodi World series.

The level 4 Man of Steel is the most competitive four stroke solo endurance on our calendar. It is for experienced regular drivers with bags of stamina. It is run in two weight classes - Lightweight = drivers up to 85kg while heavyweight caters for those weighing 85kg or more. 

Qualifying is based on the F1 format with the back third dropping out after Q1, the middle third having their grid starts settled in Q2 while the top third continue on to Q3 before knowing their fate. 

The race is one hour in duration and is often raced nose-to-tail and wheel-to-wheel all of the way. 

Up to 38 karts can be on track at once (mixed classes) 

Although this is a Championship series, each race is open to one-off entries.

A series of races that emulate certain Formula One races across the season. The idea is that the competitors emulate the qualifying format and then the number of laps of the F1 race to which it is twinned. 

Qualifying follows the F1 format with Q1, Q2 and Q3 to decide the grid. The race is an endurance, for solo drivers and is competed over the same number of laps as the F1 race (Or a maximum time in the event of a wet race) 

Up to 35 karts will be on track together. This is a level 2 event suitable for drivers with limited experience. 

Trophies are awarded to the top three drivers.

This event is a great way to spend Sunday in the company of fellow petrol heads. It is a 2* race and therefore suitable for novices as well as those with growing experience.

Regular open hire kart races for teams of 2-6 drivers

In this block you will find events designed for teams of between 2-6 drivers. These are all endurance events.

This is our 'game of two halves'. It is a team event, for teams of two who each compete separately, but earn points for the team. The team with the most points wins! 

Here it is in a little more detail. 

Driver one goes out to qualify for five minutes, then grids up and races, alongside up to 34 other drivers, for 30 minutes. He/she is then credited with points based on their finishing position. The points are logged under the team name. 

Then driver two qualifies and races in a second 30 minute endurance. The points that he/she earn are added to those accrued by the first driver and then the totals are sorted to find the winning team. In the event of a tie on points, the team with the fastest lap will gain the place. 

This level 1 event is designed to appeal to novices, but it is also popular with more experienced drivers who want to introduce a friend into the sport. 

Up to 35 karts in each race. 

Trophies to each member of the top three teams when the points have been sorted and the ties untied. 

It is a great social event as each team member gets to be the supporter when the other one races!

These races are also qualifying rounds for the Sodi World Series (Endurance Cup)

The 3hr Team Endurance is designed to appeal to drivers right across the experience spectrum. Teams can consist of any number of drivers from 2-6 drivers. The price is per team, so the more drivers, the lower the price per head. It is a level 2 event, so suitable for both novice and experienced drivers.

Thirty minutes is allocated to practice and qualifying, to make sure there is time for even the larger teams to give each driver the minimum three laps required. The race is then run over three hours with teams choosing when to pit for driver changes or to take on fuel. This is up to teams to decide as the right strategy can win the race just as too many poor pit stops can lose it. The only rule is that teams must make a minimum of three stops (inc for fuel) during the race. 

Up to 35 teams (karts) will compete for the trophies. These are awarded to every member of the top three teams. 

This event is a qualifying round for the Sodi World Series Endurance Cup. See the SWS section for details of this. 

These events are great social occasions where novice drivers can mingle with those with a few more miles under their belts. It is all about teamwork and having fun.
