Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

Sorry for the delay everyone, but the Championship tables have now been updated! Head on over to http://www.claypigeonkartclub.com/championship/ to take a look. As always, if you spot any issues, please do chuck us a message on Facebook and we’ll look into it.

Now, if you haven’t seen already, some major news was posted on the Clay Pigeon Raceway Facebook page earlier today. Its with some regret that the Club’s Treasurer and Secretary, Ian and Christine Rennison have both decided to step down from their duties to make the most of their retirement.

Ian and Christine have both been an integral part in the day to day running of the Club, as well as race weekends at the circuit for a number of years and they will be sorely missed. We wish them every happiness in their future.

Please do see the circuits Facebook post for the announcement, nothing we write here can do any justice to their service to the club, circuit, and karting as a whole. – https://www.facebook.com/claypigeonraceway/posts/1709141915872880

As such, this leaves us with some holes to fill in the club. We are looking for people to step up and join up. We are always looking for new committee members, this is the time to show your interest. We are looking for a new Club Secretary, a Competition Secretary.

If you are interested in joining your club in helping in the running of our events, please do get in touch.

Its been a busy couple of weeks, especially for the amazing staff at the Clay Pigeon Raceway for going above and beyond to help prep the circuit for last weekends Super One Series visit.

We would also like to extend our thanks to those volunteers who went out of their way to help in the final days, as well as over the weekend. Without your help, the event would not run as smooth as it did.

Most importantly, a special thanks to the Super One Series itself for bringing the British Championships back to Clay Pigeon Raceway for another year. The circuit has a long history of hosting National events, playing host to numerous British Championship rounds, to be able to continue hosting them is an absolute pleasure, a sentiment we hope is shared by the organisers of the series.

We have had a lot of very positive feedback from many of the competitors, friends and family over the weekend. We would like to thank those who came forward, your feedback is always very much appreciated, especially when so much hard work goes into the preparation of the circuit and facilities.

Now, back to regularly scheduled programming!
We are just days away from the next round of the Clay Pigeon Kart Club Championship. If you haven’t yet got your entry in, please ensure you do so as soon as you can. Online entries will be closed at some point on Saturday, when the grids are prepared, but there is no reason to leave it until the last second. Don’t risk starting from the back of the grid and get your entry in now!

Don’t forget that entries are open for all of our rounds this year, including the second instalment of the Rotax Festival. Make sure you get plenty of racing practice in – with ALL the O plates on offer, the competition will be stiff!

Parking, Camping, Pitting

NO cars are to be parked in the paddock.

All competitors with SuperOne reserved pit spaces (paid for) must report to a member of circuit staff who will direct you to your allocated pit space. Should you wish to book a pit space please contact the circuit on 01935 83713 between the hours 08:30 – 17:00 weekdays.

Any issues, give us a shout and we’ll look into it.

Regardless of what side of the fence you were on (or what side of the officials door), I’m sure we can all agree its a weekend we won’t be forgetting in a long time!

With it being the Wessex Championship, and the final club race weekend before the Super One British Championships grace the Clay Pigeon Raceway, we knew it would be a big one – but we were still stunned with the average turnout of 187 drivers for the weekend, with all classes requiring a cap on entries in the final week to make sure we could fit you all in!

We have to say a huge thank you to all of our Marshals and Officials who came from all over to ensure this event ran smoothly, but we also have to include a special thanks to the staff of the Clay Pigeon Raceway who went the extra mile and helped out, where they could, on the weekend. Lastly, Congratulations, of course, to our Wessex Champions of 2018!

But for now, we have 3 weeks of peace, quiet and rest until the next major event of the Clay Pigeon Kart Club 2018 calendar, when we host the British Championships on 2nd – 3rd of June. Spectators are more than welcome for both race days at a reasonable cost. If anyone has not entered and wants to race, please contact Super One directly to enquire.

Heats and Finals duration may be reduced in wet weather or unforeseen circumstances and will be announced on the dummy grid prior to the race.    Changes may also be made during racing for safety reasons.

 

(a)  QUALIFYING – Your best qualifying time will determine your grid position for your heat.  If your class exceeds 34 on the grid your heat position will be determined in the following way:-

With under 2 weeks still to go there are already 132 drivers registered for round 4 of the Clay Pigeon Championship and 131 registered for the Saturday but there is still space available for  you, have you entered yet?

The trophies are ready and the circuit is set so what are you waiting for. The Wessex Championship will be based on the accumulation of the 2 days’ points (please see the Regs online).

We are also please to see the return of the NKRA formula blue drivers for their next round.

I have had numerous calls regarding practice on Saturday but as this is a raceday there will be NO practice  on Saturday but you are able to practice Saturday 5th May and Friday 11th May and yes you are able to use one set of tyres for the Saturday and one set for the Sunday if you wish.

As this is a Club Championship round on the Sunday please remember that some pit spaces are reseved for members so do not setup without confirmation as you may have to move. There will be no parking of cars, Caravans or large motorhomes in the pit area.

Looking forward to seeing you all for a great weekend.
