Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

I’ve finally recovered enough to get the Website updated, the Championship tables filled in and a final little post about how amazing the Wessex Challenge was at the weekend – and I was just sat watching you guys doing the hard work!

There is no question that 2 days of racing are harder than 1, but it didn’t show one bit! Racing was just as hard on the Finals of the Sunday as the Qualifying was on Saturday. Every driver was out there to win.

We were very happy to see the return of the TKM’s with many drivers coming down to practice ahead of the Super One round on 3rd and 4th of June.
After seeing such close racing with our club members last year, the bar was high, but the visitors did not let us down. Thank you to everyone who made it. We really appreciate the overwhelmingly positive feedback you have given us and we wish you all the best of luck for June. Hopefully, we’ll see you all again soon!

With healthy grids in all of the classes, we were almost guaranteed some of the closest racing all year, but we had no idea just how close it would get. With the perfect example being the Honda Cadet final where, after nipping at Charlie Vaughans heels for 5 laps, Joshua Whittington-Couch took the win in the final sprint to the line, by a staggering 1/100th of a second!

With a few bumps and scrapes, not everyone’s weekend went as smoothly as it could have. A notable example being Joe Walmsley who, completely out of the norm, managed to have heavy impacts with the barriers in 2 of his races on Sunday. Thankfully, everyone who did get involved in an incident was able to walk away, albeit a little sore.

With all competitors and organisers alike having such a fantastic weekend, it’s difficult to find a reason not to continue the Wessex Challenge next year… Watch this space as we’ll almost certainly be including it in the 2018 line-up.

Finally, a little later than normal, Entries are open for the fifth round of the CPKC Championship. Entries can be made by snail mail if you prefer and forms can be found on our website (check out the top-right hand corner) – but, if like most, you prefer speed, online entries can be completed in just 2 minutes and its completely free!
Just head to https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa or click on the ‘Sign Up’ button at the top of our Facebook Page.

Steve Wood Kart Photography has already started uploading after taking around a staggering 3,500 photos – don’t forget that if you can’t find what you’re looking for, all you need to do is ask and Steve will have a hunt through.

Finally, thank you to everyone who makes the race meetings happen, the Marshals, Officials, Spectators, but most of all, you guys, the competitors.

If we don’t see you in 3 weeks for the Super One Championship, we’ll see you in 4 for Round 5!.

We have all been touched by the amazing effort the racing community, family and friends of Billy Monger on the Just Giving page. The Just Giving page has been set up to raise funds to help towards the “care, treatments and therapies required by Billy in the immediate future and going forward, helping him to return to a full and active life”.

As I’m sure you are all more than aware, to have such injuries at such a young age is tragic, however, his youth is his strength and his determination has already shown with Billy hinting that he wants to get back in the seat.

At our next meeting, the Wessex Challenge and Round 4, on 13th 14th May, We will be handing out visor stickers which have been very kindly donated by Roger at RPM. We will also encourage any donations to be made.

If you haven’t already done so, the fundraiser is still going strong, We have contacted JHR Developments via their Just Giving page to ask if they are happy for us to take donations on your behalf at the event and we will confirm their preference when they respond, but you can always make a donation yourself, directly to them, at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/billymonger23.

On behalf of everyone at the Clay Pigeon Kart Club and our members, we all wish Billy a full and speedy recovery and we look forward to seeing him competing again soon.

With a little over 2 weeks until the first of our weekend-long events of the year, allow me to clarify the structure of the Wessex Challenge.

As the event falls on the same weekend as a Championship Round, entries are in 2 parts: For those just attending the 4th Round of the Championship, you just need to enter Round 4 at https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa. For those of you wanting to compete for the Wessex Challenge, you will need to enter both the Wessex Challenge event on Saturday 13th and Round 4 on Sunday 14th as you will accumulate points for both days which will count as your weekend standing.

Entries are open – so why not enter online now? – just head to https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa to enter in as little as 2 minutes!

Round 3 has been and gone but it’s not going to be forgotten for a long time.

We often see ferocious, hard racing, but we don’t often see it lap after lap, class after class like we have today. Whilst some drivers managed it from lights to flag, most weren’t able to relax as battles raged from the front to the back of the pack. Notably, and one which really set the precedent for the day has to be the battle for the first Senior Rotax heat between Luc Oliver, Phillip Haworth, Cole Edwards and Brad Perrett.

The results are now official! – Well, most of them anyway – and can be viewed at http://results.alphatiming.co.uk/cpkc/2017/3/
The Senior Rotax Final is on hold for the time being as a notice of appeal has been lodged. So, whilst all of the results will show as Provisional (all or nothing kinda deal), this does only affect the Senior Rotax Final.

The next round on our calendar is the first of the big 3 of 2017 – The Wessex Challenge!
The Wessex Challenge weekend comprises of racing on the Saturday with the regular championship round on the Sunday. Entries are already open and are the usual Rate for each day.

Thank you again to all of our Marshals, Officials, Volunteers, Drivers and Spectators who allow us to continue putting events on month after month.
