With the end of the Championship comes the final event in the CPKC calendar. The Presentation Evening will be held on the evening of Saturday 12th December in the circuits new building. The list of all the 2015 Trophy winners has been published and is available on our Trophy Winners page. If you were in contention, please do check it out to see if you will have one waiting for you.
Tickets are available to all CPKC members and trophy winners free of charge, so make sure you call the circuit on 01935 83713 to book yours! A buffet will also be available so tickets MUST be booked to ensure there is an accurate head count for the food order.
Whilst we usually keep them a secret, trying to get the winners of the honorary trophies to the presentation evening can be a struggle, so the club have decided to publish that list of winners too! Congratulations to Mike ‘Puggy’ Green, Thomas Martin, Luke Barton, Max Tyler and Tommy Foster and we looks forward to seeing you all in December!
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.
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.
We knew championships were coming down to the wire and we knew there would be some intense racing. Boy! did we get a great show or what?
Competitors and officials alike were on the edge of our seats as the day progressed. Trying to keep on top of the latest championship standings to work out just how hard they needed to fight to take the 2015 Championship win. For some, the hard work paid off and for others, as hard as they fought, the mountain was just that little bit too steep!
For those of you who haven’t had a chance to work it out, we have now updated the Championship Tables after the 9th and Final round of the Clay Pigeon Kart Club 2015 Championship.
The awards ceremony has been scheduled and is being planned for the 12th December in the circuits new building that we all had a preview of on Sunday. Tickets are now available and a buffet will be provided for those in attendance. To get your tickets, please contact the circuit on 01935 83713. The sooner, the better to make sure we have enough food to go around!
Congratulations to all of the winners and runners-up from this year. We hope to see many of you at the awards ceremony in December.

After a short delay before the first practice due to a technical hitch (which may or may not have been my fault…), the Cadets really kept us on edge by giving us 2 red flags amongst some great racing which saw us still in the first heat of the day at almost 11 o’clock!
With day day brightening as racing continued, more and more action packed races kept us on the edge of our seats. Some drivers having better days than others as we saw 5 more red flags, none of which could overshadow amazing battles which lasted for laps, right up to the chequered flag in some of the classes.
Thankfully, although we had 7 Red Flags in total today, all drivers were OK (bar a little sore in a couple of places) and all (bar Emilia Vincent – due to mechanical issues) were able to get back in the game in the following race.
Whilst they may have kept us chewing our finger nails down to the knuckle through most of the day, the Cadets had some amazing action packed fights going on all through the field. With most eyes on the top 3 in the fight for the top step, the final really was anyone’s win to take. Bravo to Archie Brown, Benjamin Burgess and Guy Cunnington for stunning 3,2,1 that saw overtake after overtake, lap after lap.
Huge thank you’s to all of our marshals & officials, drivers, mechanics, supporters, spectators and everyone else who were able to attend today, and all those who were glued to their screens on the live timing feed and our facebook page updates. We’ll see you again on 8th November for the 9th and Final Round of the CPKC Championship.
With the Championship drawing to a close and the Final Round of the CPKC Championship looming over these next 4 weeks, we are in the process of planning the Awards Ceremony, AGM, and details of next years racing. Make sure you stay tuned for these and other important announcements that will go up shortly! Entries for the Final Round have been opened, so make sure you get yours in!
Thanks to Cole Edwards who sent us the link to his footage of going from 13th to 2nd in last month’s Senior Max 3rd Heat. This is some fantastic footage to keep you going until next month! Please be sure to give it a like, he might let us have some more!
