Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

The weather, the temperature, the racing! No complaints here!

With 100 (or so) competitors gracing the tarmac of Clay Pigeon Raceway, the racing was as close as ever. There were some thrills and spills, but once the action heated up, we got the close, clean racing we all have come to expect!

The Live Stream, complete with Commentary gave us no grief whatsoever also, which is wonderful! so you can watch it all back, with no ad-breaks, no connection breaks, all in (the worst) high def!

I’m trying to get a little more done tonight, including the Championships, so make sure you check back when you get home for the latest standings as we enter the final 2 rounds of the year.

Congratulations to all of our winners today, Trophies will be handed out momentarily, so please do head down to Race Control and celebrate with us!

Last, but not least, thank you to the 2 Counties Kart Club, for choosing to host another round with us. Thank you to all of our Marshals, Officials and other Volunteers to help to make the event run like clockwork, even if we get a mid-race delay. Thank you to all of the drivers, competitors friends and family who joined us both at the circuit, and online.

Our next round is on the 13th October, and we hope to see you all back soon!

With the staff and equipment of the British Kart Championships safely back at their headquarters, all that is left to say is thank you!

Rhys Hunter (DHR) and Oakley Pryer (Team Clay) for their wins in Senior Max.

All thats really left to say is thank you!

We knew that today would bring extra numbers (even if we did remove 2 races from the Senior Max line-up as we were a little optimistic with the Senior Max expectations..), but even with the extra numbers, we were able to provide over 36 minutes of wheel to wheel action per driver, with those drivers promoted from the Junior Max B Final to the A Final, racing over 48 minutes!

With that much racing, even our regulars would have been struggling with the heat, as well as the additional traffic, bought to us ahead of next week’s British Kart Championship visit to Clay Pigeon Raceway.

Whilst the racing was spectacular to watch, containing all the highs, lows, intensity and drama that the spectator’s will have loved, from an organisers point of view, we can’t help but feel it wasn’t one of our best events.

Driving standards sometimes looked like something straight out of the BTCC play-book, with accompanying warnings, penalties and exclusions taking their toll on the overall results. This caused almost as much action in the Clerks office as there was on circuit.

Even though there were some regrettable incidents, when the racing got going, it was absolutely fantastic to watch. Whilst some drivers like Maksymilian Solarski made their presence known all day long, other drivers made the most of the hand they were dealt.
Jez Williams, after a disastrous result in heat 1, clawed his way back from throughout heats 2 and 3 to earn a 6th place grid slot for the final. After fighting his way into, what seemed like, a dominant lead, he was the victim of 2 fantastic overtakes to find himself on the third step. Whilst those final 2 laps may have been frustrating, he should be very proud of his performance today.

Our next club event is on the 8th September with Round 8 of the CPKC championship, but of course, next weekend is the British Kart Championships, hosted by us, at the Clay Pigeon Raceway.
We won’t be able to provide the live stream and commentary as this is all handled by the BKC staff, but we’ll give as many updates, as well as where and when to watch, as we know.

Until next time, have a safe drive home and we look forward to seeing you all again.
