Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

We are happy to announce the beginning of a new era of Rotax Racing with the inaugural Rotax Festival, Supported by J.A.G Rotax, hosted by the Clay Pigeon Kart Club at the Clay Pigeon Raceway in Dorset on 19th & 20th August.

The event is open to drivers of the following classes:
Junior Max
Senior Rotax
Rotax 177
Rotax 177 Masters

Supported by J.A.G Rotax, the Rotax Festival is already the highlight of the 2017 UK Rotax racing calendar with the event playing host to the Senior Max O Plate and the Minimax E Plate. Not only that, but we have some amazing prizes on offer.
The winners of the Senior Max O Plate and the overall winner of the Junior Max class at the festival will win tickets to the Rotax Grand Finals – 2017 on the 4th-11th November in Portugal.

The winners of the Rotax Grand Finals tickets will receive a free entry and will be supplied with a Kart, Tyres and equipment to compete, but have the required license and must pay for all the travel and accommodation expenses for themselves and mechanic – this, however, is a small price to pay to represent Britain in the pinnacle of the Rotax kart racing world.

Age brackets for the various classes can be found here
Technical Regulations for the Grand Finals, including license grades, can be found here

To Summarise:
An amazing weekend of competitive racing – exclusively for Rotax Classes.
Senior Max O Plate.
Minimax E Plate.
Senior Max and Junior Max tickets to the Rotax Grand Finals in Portugal!

What are you waiting for? Come and fight it out alongside some of the UK’s best Rotax kart racing drivers in the hunt for the privilege of competing against the worlds best!

The Regulations, including timetable for the event can be found on the sidebar of our website at http://www.claypigeonkartclub.com or http://www.cpkc.co.uk. For O Plate competitors, a tire order form can be found here.

Entries for the weekend are priced at £100 for Rotax Festival competitors with Senior Max O Plate entries at £120. Online entries are available at https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa or you can enter by post by downloading a form at http://www.claypigeonkartclub.com/next-meeting/entry-form.

Fresh off the back of the Committee meeting, we have news on the Entry Cut off for the Rotax Festival, as well as more information for the weekend. Please do share this information and get the word out.

All Competitors

Due to the massive lean from the Senior Max entrants towards the O Plate over the festival class, regulation 10 of the Festival Regulations has come into effect and we have cancelled the Senior max class at the festival, this has however, given us more time to allocate to the O Plate which has surpassed our expectations.
As such, a revised timetable has been created and added to the other Rotax Festival documents on our website. If you haven’t done so already, make sure you give them a read through to the end, where you will find an explanation on the structure.

O Plate

The Entries for the Senior Max O-Plate will close tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7pm. No late entries will be accepted after this time.
Please ensure your tyre orders have been sent to us at the circuit, or given to Mike at the kart shop. A tyre order form is available on our website.
Lastly, due to the control tyres, it is advised that you bring a tyre spike to aid with storage of your allocated tyres. If you do not have one, your tyres will need to be stacked in storage over the weekend. If you have any spare tyre spikes you don’t mind lending to those who don’t have one, please do bring them along, they will be a great help. 🙂

Festival Classes

For all other Rotax Festival classes (Minimax, Junior Max, Rotax 177 & Masters), entries will close at 5pm on Friday. Entries for Junior Max and Minimax have been capped at 30, so if you have not entered yet, please do so as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.

Help Wanted

We are looking for people to help us out over the weekend. We will need some extra hands in parc fermé to help oversee and enforce the event regulations. If this sounds like a little too much pressure – it just means you get to shout at naughty people all day long! – It’s fun, really.
If you’re going to be around this weekend and you fancy giving us a hand, please do let us know through Facebook, email or phone. Contact details are on our website.

Now for the fun bit!

We have already posted about how we want to make this a weekend to remember, we not only managed to secure the Minimax E Plate and Senior Max O Plate, we also secured Rotax Grand Final ticket for the O Plate and Junior Max winners this weekend. We announced that TDM Media have agreed to film the event for broadcast both online and on Motorsport tv. We also had JRM approach us regarding their Formula Ford Scholarship program, allowing you to set your fastest times around Brands Hatch using their simulators for a chance to win a fully funded year in Formula Ford. Then we announced the evening entertainment of a Surf Board Rodeo and the Human Table Football from R&R entertainment.
Well to try and make it a little more fun… How about we carry on the competitive spirit into the evening with a little tournament?
If you fancy putting together a team of 5 for the Human Table Football to battle it out against the other Drivers, Teams, Family and Friends, please do let us know and we’ll try and put something together.

As I mentioned at the start of this post, especially for the O Plate competitors, it’s not long now until the weekend and it’s even shorter until the entry cut off. So please do share this post or page to whoever may be entered, or considering entering. It’s just 3 more days until the weekend starts with Friday Practice, reserved just for the festival competitors before the first ever Rotax festival, supported by JAG Rotax themselves.
Whatever you get up to in the following days, have fun and we’ll see you all on Friday.

Due to regulation 10 of the Rotax Festival, we are unable to run Senior Max class as part of the festival. This has allowed us to dedicate more time to the O-Plate competitors and we have revised the timetable to reflect this.

To those drivers who have signed up for the Senior Max class, but not the O-Plate, if we have not been in contact with you yet, please do let us know whether you want to transfer your entry over to the O-Plate.

The revised timetable can be found at the following link, or on our desktop website on the side-bar.


Entries are still open, so if you do want to sign up for the festival, please head on over to https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa. If you want to enter the O-Plate, please ensure you change your class to the O-Plate class.

First, Round 7 is just around the corner, just 6 days away. If you haven’t got your entry in yet, we’ll be closing the entries at 6pm on Friday evening. Any entries after this time will be late and will need to be made when you arrive at the circuit.

We have been looking at more entertainment for the Rotax Festival on 18th – 20th August and we have booked and entertainment company to bring in some goodies to keep you occupied on the Saturday night.
R & R Entertainment will be bringing their Rodeo Surf Board along with their Human Table Football, and maybe another couple of things, to keep you busy when you’re not in the IMR Scholarship Simulator.

Head on over to https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa to enter either Round 7 or the Rotax Festival.

For those of you yet to order, a new form with the missing field can be found here – http://www.claypigeonkartclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/O-Plate-Tyre-Order-Form.pdf

And as expected, for the most part it’s wet and miserable! – At least its kind of warm though..

The summer holidays are upon us, and many of you are off, sunning yourselves in beautiful locations and enjoying a well earned break from school, work, or racing. For those of you who aren’t though, its some easy championship points and event trophies! With only 2 weeks left until Round 7, get your entries in asap to avoid missing out on the action. Entries will close at the end of next week (latest Friday 6pm). Cadets are noticeably short so far, where have you all gone?

The Rotax Festival is, of course, the weekend after, so make sure you Rotax drivers get your entries in for that too! If you are entering the O-Plate, make sure you change your class on the online entry screen to the Senior Max O-Plate class.

Do you want to get your brand noticed?

As we mentioned in one of our previous posts, we have TDI Media coming to the Rotax Festival, supported by JAG, to film the event for both Youtube and television. If you want to sponsor one of the classes in the festival, your brand could headline the class! Imagine having your company named alongside the winners of the event, as the ‘Insert Brand Here Junior Max Challenge’, or something similar.
Any sponsorships will include banners on the broadcast as well as banners at the circuit for the next 12 months.
For anyone who is interested, please do contact with Paul or Ian. They can be contacted at comp_sec@claypigeonkartclub.com or by phone on 07443956053. Please do contact us as soon as you can to give us the best chance of preparing the banners for the event.

For a little taste of what we’re in for, take a look at the Super One playlist below..

Final note for today is regarding the O-Plate tires. If you haven’t already done so, please do get your tire order in to the club. O-Plate tires do need to be purchased through us and we need to make sure we have enough for everyone’s needs. Some drivers may want to practice on the tire brand they will be racing on, so don’t leave it to chance that we will have enough spare stock to go around. A tire order form can be found here – http://www.claypigeonkartclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/TYRE-ORDER-FORM.pdf

The first confirmed bit of entertainment we have lined up for you is courtesy of JMR Scholarship.
On the Saturday of the Rotax Festival, they will be joining us all day with their racing simulator and the amazing prize of a fully-funded Formula Ford Scholarship for next year!

The driver who posts the fastest lap around the simulated Brands Hatch Indy circuit will win a fully funded 2018 racing season. All you have to do is book your session with them online and get your practice in!

They will be at other circuits around the UK this year, so competition will be tough, but at £25 for half an hour, it’ll be just as much fun if you lose! – But you could win, though, right?

For more details and to book, you can contact JMR Scholarship on their website – https://jmrscholarship.co.uk, Facebook – www.facebook.com/jmrscholarship or twitter – www.twitter.com/jmrscholarship. Just remember to take a look at the Rotax Festival regs to make sure you book your slot around your sessions on the circuit!
