Main Championship Classes
There are 3 main Championship Classes - Juniors, Lightweights and Heavyweights.
- Juniors - min. racing weight 47.50 kg / no max. racing weight. Minimum Age 12 / Minimum Height 5 ft

Racing Weight is defined as the driver's weight when wearing the clothes they will race in, plus race suit, helmet, gloves & any additional weight required to meet a minimum racing weight such as seat inserts (weighted or otherwise), ankle weights, weight vests etc.
If you don't have your own race wear or helmet, the circuits will provide these - generally a race suit and helmet will add c. 4 kg to your clothed weight. Drivers using their own seat inserts for 'comfort' reasons should include those in their racing weight. Drivers using circuit provided seat inserts for 'comfort' reasons should add 2 kg to their racing weight.
"Standard" and "Plus" - Weight Sub-Classes
Within each main Championship class there are 2 sub-classes - "Standard" and "Plus" -
- (J) - Junior Standard : 47.50 kg - 57.49 kg
- (JP) - Junior Plus : 57.50 kg and above

- (HP) - Heavyweight Plus : 87.50 kg and above
If you have taken part in 6 or less "competitive" outdoor karting events, you can choose to enter our Main Championship as a Novice Driver. A "competitive" event are defined as "any race or championship round which is part of any other outdoor championship", whether that is in rental karts or in your own kart, and whether it is a "multi-circuit' championship or a local "In-Kart" Championship at one circuit.
Entry as a Novice Driver is only available with a Full Season Membership and means that, whilst you could still win trophies at each championship round, you are only eligible to win the Novice Award(s) at the end of the Championship Season. The number of Novice Awards depends on the number of Novice Driver entries, and is detailed on The 2020 Championship overview page.
Please can you submit a "Planned Attendance" form in addition to the Membership Form. By doing this, it will give us an indication of expected driver numbers at each championship round - this really helps with the scheduling of each raceday, and means that we are able to give the circuits and all of our drivers an estimated finish time for each round.
Indicating Planned Attendance won't be taken as a firm commitment to race, nor is it considered as an official race entry - you will still need to submit a Race Entry form ahead of each round...!
Once you have submitted your forms, remember to check the Membership Lists (usually updated within 48hrs) for confirmation that your Membership and Planned Attendance forms have been received. You will also find confirmation of payment receipts there as well. If you have submitted the forms and/or payments and this is not reflected in the Membership Lists within 48hrs, or if you have any questions about Memberships in general, then please contact us by e-mail at [email protected] and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
