Get a look at some of the action from a previous Championship!

The championship uses all of our own karts and we provide helmets, suits and gloves so all you have to do is turn up on the day and drive! If you have your own racing kit you are more than welcome to use it. The championship has a good mix of drivers from ultra-competitive to people just having a bit of fun. The grids for the heats are mixed up where everyone will get to start at the front, middle and back through their 4 heats and each race will be against different people, so everybody has a really good chance of getting decent results. At the end of the heats every driver takes part in a final with drivers who have had similar results in the heats. The top 2 drivers in each final will progress into the next final.

Everyone is more than welcome to compete in just one round to give it a go and see how they get on and hopefully we’ll see them come back for more! For more information on activities Drive-Tech have to offer visit:https://Drivetechltd.co.uk/
