STKM Apr 15

Our weekends are about to get a lot more exciting as we count down the weeks to Round 1 of the Clay Pigeon Kart Club 2016 Championship!

We have had our last committee meeting before the round on 13th March and we are making our final preparations for the 2016 season, first on the announcements is the appointment of our Race ‘n’ Respect officer, Martyn Sheppard.

Race ‘n’ Respect
Martyn is usually running his son, Bradley, during the race day, but has volunteered his time to help reinforce the nature of the Race ‘n’ Respect campaign. Martyn will be on hand to help deal with any complaints that may arise and can be found around the track, alternatively, just pop into the Circuits building (where you sign on) and we can track him and put him to work.

For more information on the MSA’s Race ‘n’ Respect campaign, head on over to https://www.msauk.org/The-Sport/Race-n-Respect

Rotax 177 Entries
Secondly, for all you 177’s out there who are coming back to take part in our 2016 championship, and all you newcomers after our fantastic racing atmosphere and comradery that the drivers have to offer, due to popular demand, the 177 Max and 177 Masters classes will have a combined Championship this year. When signing up for Round 1, please select ‘Rotax 177’ from the class/championship selection where you can chose a sub-class/champ of ‘M’ for Rotax 177, or ‘Mas’ for Rotax 177 Masters. This will only need to be done for the first round as the previous, split championships have been disabled for Rounds 2-9. For those of you who have already entered, we have already moved your entry over, you don’t need to do anything.

Entries are Live!
Don’t forget that entries for Round 1 are live and you can enter with as little as a few clicks using our online entry, supplied by Alpha Timing. The memberships we have so far have been entered into the online registration system, if you find that you are not offered the member rate when registering, please contact us by phone or on facebook and we can get the issue resolved as soon as possible.

Memberships
For those of you who don’t yet have a membership for the year, or those who have a membership elsewhere, being a member with us has never been so rewarding! Not only are our membership rates one of the cheapest around, you get the standard perks of discounted entry and automatic enrolment into our championship, with the little addition of the chance to win a Mazda 2 SEL with every event entry! The prize is only open to CPKC members who enter at least one round. Terms and conditions can be found on our announcement post.

We are deeply saddened to receive the news that Terry Thorne of Tel T Motorsport Photography has passed.

 

Terry was a regular face around the circuit for many years at our club meetings, being found in the clubhouse selling photos when he wasn’t out braving the Clay weather on circuit taking the photos you all love. He was always full of enthusiasm for racing and willing to talk about it, being karting, circuit or rally.

Unfortunately, for the past two years, he his been fighting illness which saw him unable to make the journey from his home to the circuit. An illness against which he was unable to recover.

 

From all of us at the club, we would like to offer our condolences to Terry’s family and friends. He was a fantastic personality and will be sorely missed.

CLASSES

FORMULA MINI MAX
FORMULA JUNIOR MAX
FORMULA SENIOR MAX
FORMULA SENIOR MAX 177
FORMULA SENIOR MAX 177 MASTERS

3.5.2. The 8 front and 8 rear tyres will be recorded by barcode reader and can be used at whatever meeting and in whatever order you wish, subject to Supplementary Regulation 13c (one set selected per meeting).

3.5.3. If during a Championship race a tyre is damaged you must inform the scrutineers who will record the change to another of your registered tyres. If the change is not recorded you will incur the following penalty:- EXCLUSION FROM THE MEETING.

I think we can all agree that it was a great night for all involved. Thank you again to the caterers for the evening, Manor Foods who put on a fantastic spread that went down a treat! (trust me!)

As for our trophy winners, unfortunately, Steve Wood was unable to make it, but has kindly sent us these fantastic photos, which were also supplied to the trophy winners.

Before letting you browse through, another little reminder that memberships for the 2016 Clay Pigeon Kart Club Championship are open with all member race-day entries being added into the Prize Draw to win a Mazda 2!

Round 9 – November 2015

We have already received 15 EARLY BIRD MEMBERSHIPS so far, and if you intend joining us next year, join before the end of today’s racing and you will only pay £25. When you fill in your membership form, please include a passport photo for your new membership card. We have organised a stand at KARTMANIA in conjunction with the circuit owners, IKR and the Endurance Prokart Series at which we are launching our very interesting promotion for the 2016 season. We are maintaining our 2015 entry fee for 2016 and, of course, the new building will be fully open.

TURKEY TROT

With the reduction in race competitors this year and the spiralling costs of organising a race meeting, the club have decided not to promote this event in 2015. HOWEVER, the Clay Pigeon Raceway are organising a non-MSA TURKEY TROT CHALLENGE ON SATURDAY 12th DECEMBER 2015 to which all CPKC members are invited to take part.
From the circuit: IKR Cadets and MSA Cadets use the same tyre, other classes in IKR use a less expensive control tyre so we will organise a grid of, say, MSA Rotax and a grid of IKR Rotax or, if you wish, you can hire a set of IKR tyres for the day for £25. We will have a paramedic, some IKR officials and some MSA officials – the idea is to have a safe, enjoyable, seasonal race meeting. We are ordering 20 Turkeys as prizes and all competitors will have a chance of winning one. If you are interested in competing in this event please speak to either Paul Skipp or Ian Rennison.

AWARDS EVENING and AGM – Saturday, 12th December 2015

AGM – 17:30. BUFFET PRESENTATION – 19:30 ’til late

Due to delays in the completion of the new building, we attempted to book the hotel again for a presentation dinner, but we have been informed that they are unable to accommodate us. We have, therefore, decided to organise a comprehensive buffet on the evening of the IKR Turkey Trot which will be FREE TO CLUB MEMBERS AND THOSE COLLECTING TROPHIES. To enable us to ensure we have enough food, could you please inform Chris Rennison in circuit reception if you intend on coming and the numbers in your party.

2016 – To coincide with the opening of the new CIRCUIT BUILDING, the club are organising some EXTRA SPECIAL PROMOTIONS during the 2016 Championship year – so ensure you participate in the 2016 Club Championships with arguably the largest prize find.

Finally, we are still requiring new committee members, so if you are interested speak to Chairman Paul Skipp or any committee member.
