Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

Follow the link on this page to view the results for Round 2.  We are aware of some issues with the places gained/lost in Round 1 and are working on resolving them so please bear with us.

We are all striving to get this Club back in the news for our current talent and not just the past ones, of which we have produced many. Any and all suggestions on improvements would be welcome by emailing me at comp_sec@claypigeonkartclub.com

I apologise for the delay in posting the heats on Saturday night, I appreciate you all want to be as prepared as possible for race day. We still have a few teething problems to iron out with the new timing system but the more problems we encounter now the quicker we’ll get it fully operational.

I hope you all appreciated the new Saturday evening signing-on session! I had no idea it would be quite so popular so thanks for waiting in line patiently. I am trying to devise a way to issue a copy of the practice/heat order plus the full heats for each class to each relevent entrant on Saturday evening but in order to do so I would need to start closing the online entries down several days before the race. Of course late entries can still be accepted right up until race day but will incur the old additional charge of £10.00 admin fee and you will be placed at the back of the grid. I have managed to waive this so far this year but now everyone has pretty much got to grips with the new online entry system it’s time to get back to a normal routine. If waiting for payday is the only thing delaying your entry you can still put in a ‘pending’ entry early and I will honour it with no additional fee.

The championship points will be updated as soon as Simon is settled into his new house and has the internet installed. See you all again in a few weeks.  Jo

No need to panic everyone! CPKC’s club secretary is not just trying to bump her friend count!

To ensure she can round you all up as swiftly as possible, Jo Martin is trawling through the depths of facebook, to find and add all of our members. This will help to ensure your racing experience goes as smooth as possible.

If you want to help her out, please feel free to like, comment, (or if you dare take the plunge) add her to your friends list.

Don’t forget Round 2 race entries are due in this weekend! I will be sending your names off to the printer on Monday night and Ian will be ordering the trophies so late entries are a bit of a pain……but not impossible.

Barney Fry in Junior Max proving those leap-frog sessions in infant school really paid off! Luckily dad was standing in the perfect spot to catch the action.

Entries now being taken for Round 2 on 13th April at Clay Pigeon Raceway.

I am away from my computer from this afternoon until Friday so any problems enter as a ‘confirmed’ entry and I will sort out the payment side of things when I’m back. If you haven’t paid your membership or notified me of your MSA licence number yet you won’t be charged the correct fee.

On a plus note the Formula Blue ‘O’ Plate Challenge entrants’ fee is all set up ready this time around so you should have no trouble entering and paying online.

Feel free to text me on 07832 358202 if you have any urgent queries and I will reply when I can. Jo, Competition Secretary

Well, I didn’t think I’d get a chance to say this, but we are nearly full to the gills of TKM Extremes this year! As of today club membership consists of  28 Seniors and 5 Masters.

On behalf of the club I would like to extend a warm welcome to this season’s newcomers:

Andrew Lawrence,  Patrick Millman,  Michael Eastwell,  Craig Fleming,  Oliver Nitch-Smith,  Luke Yelland,  Anwar Beroual-Smith,  James Chubb  &  Jamie Patten, who realised he missed us and has come home to roost. (Jamie was a cadet here with Jenson Button and their photo is on display on the wall in Reception.)

This is going to be THE championship to watch! Jo

Hopefully all cadets recieved this as an email from me the other day, but just in case you haven’t updated your contact details lately here is a copy of what I sent:

M.S.A. IAME CADET

SCHOLARSHIP KART

The Clay Pigeon Kart Club has been successful in being granted a new IAME KART AND ENGINE for use during the 2014 season.

  1. The scholarship karts will be supplied by J.M. Engineering.
  2. The karts will carry MSA/IAME livery with Clay Pigeon Kart Club branding.
  3. The scholarship kart must be used by the nominated driver in the Club’s IAME Cadet Championship for that season, but may also be used elsewhere.
  4. Details of how the kart has been used, including results for the scholarship driver should be notified to the MSA by the club at least monthly.
  5. At the end of the year, the driver must have the option to purchase the kart from the club for a pre-arranged fixed price, the proceeds from which must be used by the Club to purchase a new scholarship kart from JM Engineering for use the following year.
  6. If the driver declines the option to purchase, the kart should be returned to the club in a reasonable condition, either to be refurbished for use on the scholarship scheme the following year, or to be sold to enable a new kart to be purchased as above,
  7. The responsibility for the running of the kart lies entirely with the selected scholarship driver who will be responsible for all routine maintenance, spare parts and any damage caused.
  8. For the sake of clarity, neither the club, the MSA, JM Engineering nor IAME will be responsible in any way for the preparation, maintenance or running of the kart.
  9. The MSA reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship kart from any club that it considers not to be maximising the opportunity offered by this initiative. 

WHO CAN APPLY FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP?

ANY CADET DRIVER from any Cadet Class (IAME – COMER OR HONDA) who raced as a novice during 2013 at our Club Championship meetings.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

The Club Committee will then examine the race results of the applicants and select FIVE DRIVERS, accompanied by their parents, to take part in an interview with a selection committee. The selection committee will then select the winner based on driving ability, personal image and confidence at interview.

The parent/guardian will have to agree to abide by the conditions laid down for the maintenance and use of the kart.

The scholarship kart will be returned to the club after the club’s December race meeting.

A selection process will be set up for the 2015 scholarship kart based on results and performance in the IAME Cadet Class.

Online entry is now open for Round 2. Follow the link on this page under “Next Round“.

We will be hosting the Formula Blue ‘O’ Plate race during this meeting so it will be a busy one again. Let’s hope the weather behaves and gives us a treat like Round 1 weekend. I have even had several reports of sunburn! …unheard of at Clay in March.

Everyone should now able to enter and PAY online in advance, even the visiting Blues. If not, please send a cheque to me with a written entry form or drop cash into the office at the circuit if you’re practicing any time. It would do me a huge favor as I hardly had time to watch the racing on Sunday!

And please make sure you observe the Novice box by answering yes or no.  Not only does it affect your entry price but also the grids, as a few of you discovered on Sunday. Only you know when you’re due to come off novice plates.  (work is in hand to try and alter your places gained/lost results as the computer has classed a few of you as starting in the mix rather than at the back as a novice)

I would like to say a huge thank-you to everyone that has sent in messages of support for all of us working at Clay, we really appreciate being appreciated!! It’s great to have the feedback (whether good or bad) and your smiling faces are a bonus to us all.

I was issued a walkie-talkie for the first time and I heard lots of chatter about the cadet and junior classes starting off rather exuberantly (not the words the marshals used!). Please pay attention at drivers’ briefing and adhere to the flags and hand signals. Being the first one to hit the tyre wall isn’t the aim of the game, and it’s definitely not Banger Racing! Ok, lecture over from Big Momma, you won’t get one from me very often, I promise!

I have just had an enquiry from a Taunton radio station wanting to do an interview about Clay. Hopefully I can arrange to have them down on race day to catch as many of you chatterboxes as possible. The aim is to encourage more children/families into local sporting events. You will also be able to leave him your contact details for the possibility of a future live interview on the radio. If you want bigger grids we need YOU to help us spread the word.  More details on this to follow.   See you all again soon. Jo

Due to the increase in entrants this month there may be a shortfall in transponders available to hire. If possible please arrange to borrow one from a friend who doesn’t need theirs this weekend otherwise those at the end of the queue may have to double up with someone in another class, which isn’t a problem as far as the timing is concerned, it’s just one less thing you want to have to worry about on the day.

THANK-YOU to all who kindly lent us spare transponders on race day. Your generosity was much appreciated.  Jo
