We have had a few people querying the entry list showing ‘No events forthcoming’, as mentioned in a previous post, we have decided not to publish the entry list prior to the event.

Members, a Mazda 2 SEL is waiting for one lucky member! – Don’t forget that every race puts a ticket in the pot for the end-of-year raffle for that 66 reg car! The more you race, the better your odds! – Dont have a membership? – its only £35 and could pay back in a HUGE way!

Lastly, for those drivers competing in the Rotax Regional Championship who want some racing practice, you still have time to take up our member rate entry offer for Round 3 before your first round in June. For our Rotax club members, we have been made aware that you are being given the Rotax Regional option, but no Member option, for this round, please select Rotax Regional to ensure your entry is the right price.

Calling all Rotax drivers, don’t forget that we are proudly hosting the first round of the Rotax Regional (South West) Championships on June 12th.

Registrations are free for the series, but do need to be done so in advance of your participation. So, what are you waiting for? – just head on over to http://www.rotaxregional.co.uk/register-free-for-2016/ or give us a shout to get yourself on the books for the 4 round shoot-out that will crown some of you, Champions in the South West.

For those of you who are concerned about how this may affect your club championship, don’t! – the points will be collated separately and against those drivers you are in direct competition with. With regards to our championship tyre regulations, even if you use a fresh set every meeting, you’ll be on your last fresh set ready for the weekend.

For free registration, and an excuse to visit the other fantastic tracks in the region, sign up now. (Just make sure you get to Round 1! 😉 )

Don’t forget that there are still 2 more rounds before the Regional Champs kick off, make sure you get as much practice as you can and come join in the fun!

Members are reminded that each time you sign on, you will get an entry in the end-of-year raffle to win the top prize of a 66 registration Mazda 2 SEL. BUT – you’ve got to be in it to win it!

Lastly, in case you missed it, the Rotax Regional Championships have been confirmed and we will be hosting the first round of the South-West champs in June! I’ll put another update specifically for the Rotax regional champs tomorrow, but if your thinking of taking part, get a couple of rounds of racing practice in. There is nothing to stop you from joining in on our club championship as well, why not take one out and see if it can pay off big come December?

Tom Canning Round 8

Do you want to get into karting, but not really sure where to start?

The CPKC are happy to announce we are holding another taster day on Saturday 14th May. We’ll be at the Clay Pigeon Raceway showcasing a small selection of karts you can drive, allowing you to get a taste of what karting in the UK is all about.

Well have the club’s own TKM, Rotax and Cadet karts on stand-by with experienced club members on hand to get you settled in and on the track, getting a feel for what karting has to offer. There is no pressure and no sales intention, this is just a way to help you get an honest unbiased taste of the pros and cons of each class and allow you to make a better decision on whats best for you, as a driver.

Want to try it out? Just let us know your interested and we’ll be in contact to arrange a slot for you to come up have a go!

Just send your name, contact number and when’s best to call to us on our facebook page.

 

Who knows? You might just be the next World Champion!

Just as we start to calm down after the immense first round of the CPKC championship, our sights are already on Round 2 on 10th April.

The fastest laps and championship tables have been updated after the first round and are now available on our website, so there is nothing getting in the way of making sure we get the entries in and the staff on hand to get a repeat performance of the quality racing you all bought to Clay Pigeon Raceway on Sunday.

Championships

First, some important information regarding the championships. Whilst we have specified classes that we knew we could publish a championship for this year, there is nothing stopping us from holding a championship for other classes, as long as we have the attendance.
At present, we are only looking for 5 members in a class who regularly attend the season, to start publishing a championship table. If your in a class who doesn’t regularly have a strong grid here at clay, why not chat to some of the other drivers in your class and get them to sign up – as long as you show up, the championship is there for you!

Formula Blue

Prime candidates for this are the Formula Blues. We know there are a number of drivers in the local area who would love to get back in the seat while between rounds of the NKRA. You are all more than welcome, just get your entries in and get your fellow competitors to do so too.

Entries.

Did you know that you don’t have to pay straight away when you enter?
By leaving the online registration page at the point your payment is requested, you can put off paying until you can afford it (or altogether if you would prefer to pay when you sign on). We do regular checks to ensure any unpaid entries are counted and you appear on the entry list.

We know that grids attract grids, and as Derek Hunt mentioned at drivers briefing at Round 1, why don’t we try and attract more drivers this year and push the grids towards the levels we had just a few years ago. The easiest step is to make sure any prospective entries get an accurate idea of the grids we will have to offer. Get your entry in, don’t worry about paying straight away (you still can log back in and pay in the week leading up to Round 2) and lets make a push for the grids we all want to see for the rest of the year.

Rotax

The Regional Championships are go! We are happy to be hosting the first round of the Rotax South West Regional Championship on 12th June. If you haven’t been to the circuit recently, come on down and get some practice in to make sure you get your championship off to the best start possible. Going to race more than one round? – why not take out a membership and get yourself in the running to possibly win a 66 plate Mazda 2 SEL!

 

So what are you waiting for? – get your entry in, paid or unpaid. Lets get the entry list blooming and show everyone what they’re missing out on.

What a fantastic way to start the 2016 championship! – WOW!

From the first green light to the final chequered flag, every competitor had us on the edge of our seats wondering who was going to come out on top. my (Simon) personal highlight has got to be the Senior TKM’s – who, race in, race out, were on constant battle for the lead. And there were only 5 drivers!

All the action from today has been, pretty much, without consequence for the most part, with other clubs reporting front fairing infractions of 60+ (over 100 in one case we have heard of), the clerks had a pretty easy day with minimal infractions to report. Ill try and get some figures for those interested soon.

Results from all of today’s races have been finalised and are now available online at http://results.alphatiming.co.uk/cpkc/2016/1

Championship points and fastest laps etc will be updated in the next few days, so make sure you stay tuned to see who comes out on top after Round 1.

The next round is in 4 weeks on 10th April. Entries have been opened and you can enter online at http://cpkc.alphatiming.co.uk/register/msa or by clicking the ‘sign up’ link at the top of our facebook page.

Thank you again to all of the competitors who took part today, we hope you had as much fun as we had watching, and we’ll see you next month!

Pigeon Post
Round 1 – March 2016

Welcome to Clay Pigeon Kart Club for the start of the 2016 Championship.  There is some very important information you should familiarise yourself with before we begin racing.

Obviously the ground floor of the new circuit clubhouse is now open, but unfortunately there have been delays in opening the first floor cafe/viewing area, but we hope this will be open for the April meeting.

The end of year prize of a new (66 registered) Mazda 2 SEL, worth £13,000 on the road, is only open to club members – so if you haven’t joined the club, JOIN TODAY.  The terms and conditions of this prize are on the Win the Car flyer on the reception counter.

There are one or two pit spaces still available so if you could like to rent one for the year see John Barton (Environmental Scrutineer).

Throughout the year we have visiting championships which include FP4 Challenge, Rotax Regional Championship, two rounds of the TKM Championship also the Inter-Services Championship.  We welcome this month the FP4 Challenge.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION regarding new MSA and Championship Regulations.

  1. CHAMPIONSHIP TYRE REGULATION – If you are participating in the 2016 Clay Pigeon Club Championship, the maximum number of tyres you are allowed to use is 4 sets (not Cadets). Please read the regulations which will be explained at drivers briefing.
  2. RACE ‘N’ RESPECT – Like all clubs we are supporting the MSA initiative to enable all of us to enjoy a friendly sporting meeting without listening to, and watching, verbal and physical abuse. Our Race ‘N’ Respect Officer is Martyn Sheppard, so if you have any abusive or bad language to report, please approach Martyn first and he will deal with it as necessary.
  3. DETACHABLE FRONT FAIRING (MSA Regulation U17.1.6) – We are sure you are all aware of te above regulation mandatory from the 1st March 2016 which now, if detached, attracts a penalty of 10 seconds. Again this regulation will be explained at drivers briefing.
  4. WHITE LINES (U12.5.3) – Please read the regulations in the blue book to familiarise yourself with this regulation.
  5. STARTS – You must stay on your gridded side of the yellow start lines until you have passed under the start-light gantry. Remember there are cameras watching all starts.
  6. DOGS AND OTHER PETS – If you have to bring your pet to the race meeting you must abide by Regulation E2.1.2 in your MSA Yearbook,. You must also clear up after your pets.

Well that’s all for now, enjoy your day and the committee wish you a successful new Championship year.

CPKC COMMITTEE

P.S.  If you would like to help in the organising of our race meetings by joining our committee or wish to train as a licensed official which the MSA desperately need, please speak to your Chairman Paul Skipp, or Treasurer Ian Rennison.
