Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

Round 1 is just around the corner…

We have 1 week until the Clay Pigeon Kart Club 2015 Championship gets under-way. Memberships are looking good and the championship is looking like its going to be hotly contested. If you want to be in on the action, make sure you get those entries in ASAP!

Remember, entries should be in before Tuesday at 5pm to ensure you are in the program and don’t risk being treated as a late entrant, however, you will be able to enter online up until Friday/Saturday. The weather is looking to be a mild 11 degrees, but more importantly, dry! – so what’s your excuse? :-P

For those of you who haven’t got one yet, all the cool kids these days have a 2015 Clay Pigeon Kart Club Membership card. You can pick one up at any point during the year, but you will be missing out on Championship points until you do! Remember, being a member also gives you a reduced entry fee which makes your years karting cheaper than if you didn’t buy it in the first place!

 

For those of you who want to get involved, in other ways, we are still looking for people to help out over the weekend, see our previous Vacant Positions post for more info.

Vacant Positions

Further to the Get Involved page which was created a couple of weeks ago, here are some holes that we need filling (don’t worry, they wont take up your whole weekend):-

  • Assisting with Driver Sign-on
    • All drivers are required to sign on to the circuit to compete, the clubhouse becomes the hub of the circuit during this time as drivers get their wristbands, novices submit their licenses and transponders are hired. Sign on will be available for an hour or two on Saturday (usually starting around 5) and Sunday morning.
  • Bonus Ball
    • For a long time, the club has run a bonus ball fundraiser for £5 per number, we would like to continue this and need someone who will be available for a time on the Saturday to rally the troops and get some Bonus Ball entries. Winner gets a sizeable cash prize on the Sunday!
  • Recording
    • Your footage could be in our event videos.
      After a trial of mini movie creation last year was met with huge support and praise, Jamie Robinson has been hard at work with his phone and the helicam, getting and editing footage into videos and uploading them online. Well, Jamie is only one man and we want to take over the world! To so this, we need more man power with more cameras so it can be edited into as much uninterrupted footage as possible.
      If you have a decent camera and don’t mind watching the action through a lens, please do let us know. If you are a student, this could be the perfect opportunity to get some fantastic footage and to be part of something special!
  • Race Reports (The big one!)
    • We are looking for someone with a love for motorsports to write some race reports for us. The reports would be submitted to various publications with the aim to get as much coverage for the club and the sport as possible. Clay Pigeon has hosted some absolutely fantastic racing for decades, we need this written up for the world to enjoy.
      If you fancy taking the challenge and representing the club online, in karting magazines and newspapers please let us know. If you have the ability, we are willing to compensate you for your time.

If you would want to get involved, or if you just want something to do while your Mum/Dad/Brother/Sister/Son/Daughter/Dog/Significant Other is out on circuit, please let us know via our Facebook Page.
If none of the above takes your fancy, but you still want to get involved, check out some of the activities you could be doing in our Get Involved page.
 

This is our aim, except we’ll pronounce our driver’s names right! .. “Yenson” .. Paha!

Roll Up! Roll Up!

With the first round of the 2015 Championship in just 2 weeks, it’s time to chase you around the internet to make sure your entries are in with enough time to get you on the system and in the Programme.

The first round is March 8th, with an entry cut off of Tuesday 3rd. Any entries after 5pm on 3rd will be counted as late and you will start from the back of the pack.

Remember, you can enter online at https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa.

Entries for Round 1 are Open!

 

March 8th will see the lights go green for the first round of the 2015 Championship. Its been a long Christmas and I’m sure you have all been in your respective Shed’s, Garages and Workshops preparing you kart for another hard year of racing.

Last year was a fantastic sight, seeing championships won and lost in the final race of the season by mere seconds (if that!). I’m sure that you all wont disappoint with another spectacle this season.

Make sure you all get your entries in before Tuesday 3rd to avoid starting from the back of the grid. Click Here to enter online.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

To all competitors of the Winter Shakedown Event this weekend it is with regret that due to lack of entries we will be cancelling this race meeting. It is not financially viable for the Clay Pigeon Kart Club to hold this event and we would like to thank all that have entered for their support and look forward to seeing you all at Round 1 of the Club Championship on 8th March. We will be contacting all competitors to see whether they would like to be refunded or their entries carried over to Round 1.
The Clay Pigeon Raceway will be open as normal for Saturday practice but, unfortunately we are not able due to planning constraints to open on Sunday for practice.
Once again to all entrants thanks for your support and see you on the 8th March.

Insider Info!

 

Deliberations are still underway as to whether we have enough entries to move forward with the Shakedown, considering we currently only have 34 entries registered online, and the club would take a hit with the expense of running the meeting, it still being considered is a very good thing.

 

More importantly, it means that there is more time to sneak your last second entries in to make the difference.

If you still want to enter, head on over to http://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa, again, if you have entered by post and would like to confirm your entry, please let us know via our Facebook page and we can count you in.

 

We will let you know as soon as a decision has been made.

Get Those Entries In!

 

With the Shakedown just around the corner, we need you all to get your entries in tomorrow.

As mentioned in the post on Saturday, we will be evaluating the number of entries tomorrow at 5, and if we don’t have enough, we will be forced to cancel the event, so please get your entry in tonight/tomorrow.

If you are entering by post and you don’t think we will have had the form, please drop us a message on Facebook so we can add you to the number.

 

We hope to see you all on Sunday!

Attention All Drivers!

As of posting this, only 12 drivers have signed up for the February Shakedown. Obviously, we can’t run an event with only 12 entries, as much as we would love to. For many, it is pay day weekend, so I’m sure the number will increase quite quickly

We will re-evaluate the number of entries on Tuesday, but if we do not have enough, we will be forced to cancel the Shakedown and await the first championship round in March.

Practice on Saturday will be available for both licensed and unlicensed on Saturday.

 

If you want to participate in the Shakedown, please please please get your entry in by 5pm on Tuesday!

Work Party is Cancelled!

Hi guys, unfortunately the work party has been cancelled. Construction work is underway now that the steel frame for the new building is up and due to all of the work already on site, it has been decided that more people doing more work (as well as usual circuit activities) might be a little too much.

If you were planning on popping in, Thank you, but I guess we’ll have to wait until the shakedown to see you again.

Your Invitation Still Stands…

 

The weather is looking a mild 8 degrees for Sunday after a sunny Saturday, so our party looks to still be on.

Don’t forget, if you fancy coming to the circuit to help with some final preparations for the upcoming season, please do feel free. If you just fancy a chat and a cuppa, I guess your welcome too! ;-)

The work party is still on for Sunday where there is a small list of little jobs that we plan on getting done, these range from tidying up, to renumbering the grids and building the circuits new all-in-one facility. A little more info can be found here.

 

We all look forward to seeing you there :-)
