After a fantastic 2018, it is time to turn our heads to 2019 and what is bound to be our most exciting season of racing yet. With help from our community, we’ve made some big changes for the 2019 Championships, these are highlighted below along with the full list of upcoming dates.
BP Pro Series
First off, we start with the BP Pro Series. Our ever-popular flagship series didn’t need a lot of tweaking but there have been some minor itinerary and rule changes, but the most exciting talking point will be around the race coverage. We’ve teamed up with Tapes Up Productions to bring you all the action on what is sure to be a thrilling 8 round battle.

The Clubman class is non-championship and replaces the “International Sprint”.

BP MAX Following the recent change in engines used by Club100 who supply the karts for this event, we thought it would only be fitting to update the name from BP EXTREME to BP MAX to reflect this.
