Head on over to http://www.claypigeonkartclub.com/championship/ to check out the latest championship tables. After a wet and wild Round 7, there has been some shuffling around in some champs that are really spicing things up!

With only 3 more championship rounds to go – the 2018 Championship is really anyone’s for the taking!


On more immediate news, we are ALWAYS looking for people who are willing to offer their time to help us run our meetings on the day. This weekend is another example of where helping hands will go a long way. If you don’t have anything to do this weekend, and would like a little cash in your pocket, please do get in touch.
The work is nice and simple, just helping to monitor the competitors and ensuring that the rules of the holding are and pit lanes are enforced.

This weekend aside, if you want to get involved in motorsport, of you have some experience you would like to share with us, please do get in touch. Its not always easy to get all of the marshals and officials that we need for a weekend, whether you have any experience or not, you’ll always be welcome to get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.

Whilst the first rain of the year(?) came and went, it certainly didn’t put a dampener on the racing! – WOW!

The trophy presentation is about to start, and as always, your presence is always appreciated to congratulate our Round 7 winners and runners-up.

Thank you to all of our drivers and spectators for coming today and bearing with the wind and the rain to give us some amazing entertainment. Thank you to our Marshals and Officials, without whom, we wouldn’t be able to run the meetings, and finally, thank you to all of you who tuned into live timing and the live stream of Sam Hunt’s fantastic commentary. Its amazing how one person’s voice can bring a whole new life into an event.

For all you Rotax drivers, don’t forget that there is just 1 more week until the highlight of the 2018 calendar, the Rotax Festival, supported by JAG Rotax.
Not only do we have the O Plates, for each Rotax Class, but JAG Have supplied Short Engines as O Plate Prizes, as well as Tyres for the runners up, amongst others on offer. If you haven’t entered yet, you’ don’t have long as entries will close on Tuesday. With 130 drivers already entered, it’s going to be epic!

Hi Guys,

It has come to our attention that there has been a misinterpretation surrounding the 177 Masters O Plate. Unfortunately,due to 177 masters being a sub-class of the Rotax 177 class, there is no O Plate for the 177 Masters.

We have contacted the ABkC to discuss this, but unfortunately, the MSA does not recognise and will not allow us run an O Plate event for the 177 Masters.

For those drivers who are entered as a 177 Master, and would like to transfer their entry over to the 177 Class to compete for the 177 O Plate and O Plate prizes, please do get in touch and we can transfer you over.

We’re less than 1 week away from the next round of the CPKC championship, which means for Rotax drivers, 1 final chance to get some racing practice in before the Rotax Festival!

Entries can be made online at https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa or by hitting the ‘sign up’ button on our Facebook page.

For those of you who haven’t yet seen the latest kart regulation, regarding Red Flags, take a look below:

Rotax Festival Tyres!

As the tyres will be stored under parc fermé conditions, we ask that you have Tyre Spikes handy to help ensure your tyres are stored in the safest way possible.
Whilst they are not compulsory, as last year, we really do recommend using them to avoid any incidents of a stack of tyres falling over and damaging the tyre/rim etc whilst in storage.

Whilst other outlets are available, this picture was nabbed from Zip North’s website, so it’s only right i link the page 🙂

There are some Additional Supplementary Regulations for you to feast your eyes on over on our Rotax Festival page.

Don’t worry, its just some clarification on tyre usage.
The summary:
1 set of tyres for the weekend.
You can use any old set of tyres for the Saturday practice sessions.
You must use your event tyres for the practice sessions on the Sunday.

To save you all a click, the ASR’s are also here:

Additional Supplementary Regulations


Also, its been pointed out that i maayyy have forgotten to add the points for the fastest laps onto the Championship tables from the last round. I’ll be getting on it as soon as i have a spare 10 minutes, so please expect the tables to change in the next day or 2.

I mentioned in my last post that we have some absolutely AMAZING prizes on offer, courtesy of JAG Rotax.

Well we’re happy to announce that JAG are offering up Short Engines and Tyres for the lucky O-Plate competitors in Minimax, Junior Max, Senior Max and 177.
We will also have some other, amazing prizes on offer, yet to be announced!

Also, our tyre order form has been updated for 2018 and is now available below, or over on our Rotax Festival Page.

Compared to last month, this has been almost perfect!

The weather has been beautiful, even if many of us are now just a puddle of goo on the floor from the heat, the racing has been close and very competitive through the field.

Forgive how short this post is, but it’s really one of those days where you want to just sit in an ice-bath in nothing but your underwear!
Thank you, of course, to all of our Drivers, Teams, Marshals, Officials, Organisers, Medical Staff, Spectators and everyone else who has made it here to enjoy the weather and racing. Without you all, there would be no club and no championship.

Results are available from http://results.alphatiming.co.uk/cpkc/2018/6/ and the championship tables will be up as soon as I’ve unstuck myself from the chair.

On a final note, for those of you who haven’t yet signed up for the Rotax Festival, i would highly recommend doing so! Not only are the O Plates on hand for the winning drivers, but i have just heard of some magnificent prizes on offer.

Entries are open for the next club round, as well as the Rotax Festival over at http://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa.
