Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

With a little over 2 weeks until the first of our weekend-long events of the year, allow me to clarify the structure of the Wessex Challenge.

As the event falls on the same weekend as a Championship Round, entries are in 2 parts: For those just attending the 4th Round of the Championship, you just need to enter Round 4 at https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa. For those of you wanting to compete for the Wessex Challenge, you will need to enter both the Wessex Challenge event on Saturday 13th and Round 4 on Sunday 14th as you will accumulate points for both days which will count as your weekend standing.

Entries are open – so why not enter online now? – just head to https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa to enter in as little as 2 minutes!

Round 3 has been and gone but it’s not going to be forgotten for a long time.

We often see ferocious, hard racing, but we don’t often see it lap after lap, class after class like we have today. Whilst some drivers managed it from lights to flag, most weren’t able to relax as battles raged from the front to the back of the pack. Notably, and one which really set the precedent for the day has to be the battle for the first Senior Rotax heat between Luc Oliver, Phillip Haworth, Cole Edwards and Brad Perrett.

The results are now official! – Well, most of them anyway – and can be viewed at http://results.alphatiming.co.uk/cpkc/2017/3/
The Senior Rotax Final is on hold for the time being as a notice of appeal has been lodged. So, whilst all of the results will show as Provisional (all or nothing kinda deal), this does only affect the Senior Rotax Final.

The next round on our calendar is the first of the big 3 of 2017 – The Wessex Challenge!
The Wessex Challenge weekend comprises of racing on the Saturday with the regular championship round on the Sunday. Entries are already open and are the usual Rate for each day.

Thank you again to all of our Marshals, Officials, Volunteers, Drivers and Spectators who allow us to continue putting events on month after month.

If you’re like me, you lost track of time and didn’t realise its only 1 more week until Round 3 of the CPKC Championship, and the last round before the inaugural Wessex Challenge on 13th and 14th May. Head on over to https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa to get your entry in.

Make sure you get your entry in before 6pm on Friday night so you’re not counted as late. Online entries are still accepted until midday Saturday and at the circuit.

We still have sponsorship opportunities for the Wessex Challenge and Rotax Festival.
If you are interested in sponsoring a perpetual trophy and being part of the history of the events, please do get in touch with us at comp_sec@claypigeonkartclub.com

If you haven’t already seen yet, we had confirmation on Thursday, from the ABKC, that with the unfortunate re-scheduling of the Senior Max O-Plate, we will be hosting the O-Plate at our Rotax Festival in August!

We are still working on the specifics, but we will keep you updated!

That concludes the racing for today. Thank you to all the competitors, spectators and officials, we hope you’ve all had a good day down with us here at Clay Pigeon Raceway. Be sure to join us again next month for round 3 which takes place on Sunday 9th April.

Full results and championship tables are available to view at http://results.alphatiming.co.uk/cpkc/2017/2.

As usual Steve from Steve Wood Kart Photography has been busy out there in the sun, rain, cold and wind taking some fantastic picture from today’s action. We will share a few of his shots as soon as he’s worked his editorial magic on them. If you require a specific picture be sure to contact him via his Facebook page.

We had 151 competitors today and not a single red flag so once again thank you to all the drivers for providing fantastic and for the most part clean racing which everyone here at the circuit has enjoyed watching.

Also we’d like to thank FP4 Kart Club and NKRA Formula blue for joining us today ad we look forward to hosting your rounds in the future.

Entries have already been opened up for Round 3! – you can enter online, as always, at https://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa.

We look forward to seeing you all again on 9th April.

The weather looks a little pants in the morning… Yes!
The rain will go and the Sun will come out.. Yes!
There is over 150 drivers in attendance this weekend – pfftt, no biggie!

This weekend is going to be fantastic! – I’m sure there will be some spills to go along with the thrills with the transition between wet – drying – wet – dry, the true tacticians will be those on top! (that, and those who forget their wet tyres).

Spectators are always welcome at our events! entry is just £4 per person with under 14’s free. Racing is set to start a little after 10am on Sunday.
There is the Pit Stop Cafe and Bar on site with a wide selection of nibbles and tipple and undoubtedly the best view of the action on the balcony!

For those of you who cant make it, we will (as long as something doesn’t go wrong) be live streaming Sam Hunt’s fantastic commentary with a live stream feed on YouTube! – you will be able to find the stream on the website, on our YouTube channel, and we’ll be linking to it on Facebook on Sunday.


Whatever you are up to on Sunday, Don’t miss out on some amazing action, at Clay Pigeon Raceway, half-way between Yeovil and Dorchester on the A37!
