Welcome to the Sodi International Leisure Ranking for kart racing. Are you a hire kart karting enthusiast who loves the thrill of racing? Come test your mettle against the top leisure drivers in the Sodi World Series (SWS).
The concept is simple. A series of official SWS hire kart races will be held throughout the world, generating an international ranking updated in real time on the dedicated Sodi SWS website. At the end of the season, the top-ranked drivers will compete in the International Final which will take place somewhere in Europe in the spring of 2016
The SWS is 100% hire kart series, giving you the opportunity to compete throughout the season, in your neighbourhood or on the other side of the world, without having to invest in race equipment.
Thanks to the Sodi W series, the world is yours… How far will you go?
Buckmore has arranged a series of races to run from 1st January - 31st December that will act as qualifiers for this great International series.
This year we will again be offering qualifiers in both the individual (Sprint Cup) and team (Endurance Cup) categories. The individual events (Sprint Cup) will be arranged as an integral part of the Man of Steel Championship rounds (Mar to Oct plus Nov/Dec).
The team events (Endurance Cup) will be integrated with the three rounds of the 2hr Team Endurance (Feb, Nov & Dec), the four rounds of the Six Hour Summer Championship (Apr/May/Aug/Dec) as well as all of the Three Hour series of races (Mar to Oct).
There is no extra cost to enter so all you pay is the normal race entry*.
It is essential that you register on the SWS website, either as an individual (Sprint Cup) or as both individuals and as a team in the case of the Endurance Cup.
Registration is extremely simple. Just visit http://www.sodiwseries.com , set the website to English and follow the instructions.
* Drivers who reach the World Final will be required to pay an entry fee.
Points earned during 2015 will be uploaded to the Sodiwseries web site so you can keep track of your performance. The grand final will be held somewhere in Europe in 2016.
