After the success of the last 8 seasons, 2020 will also see Grand Prix championships that we will be running for drivers that don’t have the preparation time available to compete in race meetings as “owner” drivers but still want to get all the extra benefits that becoming a club racer offers!
Powered by a custom fleet of Honda 5.5 BHP de-governed EVO karts. These machines have been built to race spec and are only used by our championship drivers. Not only are the karts faster, but they will also remain in optimum condition allowing a fair and level race series! You will not find another championship in the UK offering a bespoke fleet of race karts!
For 2020, the fleet will be treated to a brand new set of tyres and brand new derestricted engines.
Separate championships exist for the 8 to 11 and 12 to 15 year olds. The format is based around a GP style meeting with a practice, qualifying (for grid position) and final race.
With arrival 60 minutes before practice and the final finishing 60 minutes after the start of practice, the session should require you here for about 2.5 hrs “arrival to departure” allowing for the post race presentation. After each race the top three drivers will receive trophies and ALL entrants will get their own “lap time certificate”. Naturally many drivers will want to use their own race wear but we will provide all kit, if required.
If you are “brand new” to the Rye House Championships, the first thing we need to do is a driver assessment. This takes the form of a 1-2-1 training session (60 mins) after which our instructor will tell you if you are ready to race. Once deemed eligible, you are ready to sign up!
If you’re not quite ready you can still sign up on the understanding you take the suggested “practice” steps to get up to speed……………………
