The Famous Rotax Festival is back again for 2021!
Due to more lockdowns, more Calendar shuffles and conflicts, we’ve taken the decision to cut this year’s event down to 1 day, although it will be back in its usual 3rd weekend in August slot, on the 15th!
There is 1 additional change, however, this year, we are proud to be hosting a Honda Cup!
With help from J.A.G Rotax, we have some amazing prizes on offer for the victors!
Honda Cadet and Minimax winners will receive a training session in a professional SIM setup at Silverstone, with Junior max, Senior Max and 177 victors receiving Short Engines!
Keep your eyes and ears open as there may be some more amazing news still to come!
What an amazing way to prematurely end the 2020 season!
We were disappointed to feel the need to incorporate the Rotax Festival into one of our club weekends, but when the final round had to be cancelled due to Lockdown 3.0, it did mean that the Festival was a spectacular season finale!
Congratulations to our 2020 victors:
Minimax: Harry Linden
Junior Max: Matthew Higgins
Senior Max: Kai Hunter
Rotax 177: Henry Ayres
What a Festival!
In the run up to the event, we spoke about it being an intense 1 day, all or nothing shoot-out to be crowned the best in England. Our competitors really did deliver!
With 150 registered competitors and 140 making it to the end of the day, the competition was just as fierce as we could have hoped for, especially in the Junior and Minimax classes where there were 39 and 35 registered drivers respectively.
Thank you to all of the competitors who decided to come down and take part in another superb example of Rotax Racing in the South of England.
Thank you to all of the Marshals, Officials and other volunteers who assisted on the day, without the help of these volunteers, any form of racing couldn’t take place.
A special thank you to Lee Rennison and the staff at Clay Pigeon Raceway for all their help. They help the club so much on a monthly basis, allowing us to keep going.
Last but not least, the biggest of thanks goes to J.A.G Rotax, they have gone above and beyond, once again, offering the amazing prizes of tyre sets and Rotax goodies for this event. Their continued support not only makes us want to keep running the Rotax Festival, but makes us proud to do so.
Congratulations to our Rotax Festival and E Plate winners of 2019:
Minimax: Callum Voisin
Junior Max: Tom Adams
Senior Max: Luke Wooder
Rotax 177: Cole Edwards
We’ll start planning the 2020 Rotax Festival soon. Keep an eye out for all the latest news on the Clay Pigeon Kart Club and the Rotax Festival on our website and on our Facebook page.
