Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club

Sorry for the delay – but after that weekend, i needed to lie down!

But I’m happy to announce that the championship tables have been collated after the fourth round of the CPKC Championship. Head on over to http://www.claypigeonkartclub.com/championship/ to check them out.
Any issues, give us a shout and we’ll look into it.

Don’t forget that entries are already open for the 5th round of the championship in June, and for the Rotax Festival in August! Get your entries in soon to avoid missing out!

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.

THE WESSEX CHALLENGE

ADDITIONAL SUPPLEMENTARY REGULATIONS

 

Due to the high number of entries at this meeting, it is necessary to alter regulation to alter regulation 7 of the Supplementary Regulations.

 

REGULATION 7

 

Each driver will compete in (1) Timed Qualifying (2) 1 Heat (3) At least 1 Pre-final (4) At least 1 Final

 

The standard scheduled time for all classes will be :-

Timed Qualifying                                6 Minutes

Whenever practicable the above scheduled distances will be raced, but should any race distance be reduced at the discretion of the Clerk of the Course or the Stewards of the meeting, it will count as a full result, subject to Regulation U7.9 – U7.9.3 of the 2018 MSA Kart Race Yearbook.

 

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:-

The fastest Qualifying time will be pole on Heat ‘A’, second fastest Qualifying time will be pole on Heat ‘B’, third fastest Qualifying time Grid 2 for Heat ‘A’, fourth fastest Qualifying time Grid 2 for Heat ‘B’  and so on.

 

(b) HEATS – Your finishing position in the heat will determine your grid position for the pre-final.  If there is a Heat A and Heat B in your class, the top 12 in each heat will go straight to the Pre ‘A’ Final, the rest will proceed to the ‘B’ Pre-Final.

 

(c) ‘B’ PRE-FINAL – The top 4 from the ‘B’ Pre-final will proceed straight to the back of the ‘A’ Pre-Final.  The rest will compete in the ‘B’ Final.

(e) ‘B’ FINAL – The top 4 in the ‘B’ Final will proceed to the back of the ‘A’ Final.  The finishing position  of the rest will be their final points scoring towards the overall Wessex Championship.

 

(f) ‘A’ FINAL – Trophies for the Wessex Challenge will be determined by your finishing position in the ‘A’ Final.  Points for the Wessex Championship will be determined by your finishing position in the ‘B’ and ‘A’ Finals.

 

PLEASE ENSURE YOU COMPLY WITH THE ABOVE REGULATION AS NON-COMPLIANCE COULD LEAD TO EXCLUSION FROM THE MEETING.

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.

With the third round of the CPKC Championship done and dusted, we move our sights to the next event in the 2018 calendar and the first of the Big events for this year, the Wessex Championship!

Comprising of both the Wessex Challenge on the Saturday, and the CPKC 2018 championship fourth round on the Sunday, winners will have the privilege of donning the hallowed ‘WC’ plate for the next 12 months at all CPKC events at the circuit.
So, what are you waiting for? Make sure you get your entries for both days in as soon as possible. Don’t forget that we can expect lots of visiting drivers in the run-up to the Super One British Championships, so make sure your entry is in before the grids fill up!

Congratulations, once again, to the first winners of the Wessex Championship revival, in 2017, but if you haven’t already done so, it’s now time to blow the dust off of the perpetual trophies and make sure they are returned to us, with time for us to get them engraved so your name can forever be etched into Wessex Championship history!
If you haven’t already returned yours, please get in touch and let us know when we can expect them back.

We have also had a number of enquiries regarding entry for the Rotax Festival, supported by JAG Rotax – Just to let you all know, we will be opening entries very soon. The Championship tables will also soon be updated, so make sure you keep an eye out for our posts so you don’t miss out!
