After the success of the last five 5 seasons, 2016 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!
New for 2016, Rye House is taking delivery of a brand new custom fleet of Honda 5.5 BHP de-governed EVO karts. These karts have been built to race spec and will only be used by our championship drivers. Not only will the karts be faster than previous years, 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!
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 have all the kit available, if required.
