We can announce that the London Cup 2017 will be going IKR!
With HKC taking a sabbatical this year, it was always going to be difficult getting just MSA licenced drivers here in good numbers. With this in mind, Rye House have decided to take the reins and run the London Cup for both MSA and non-MSA (but Rye House verified) drivers!
Our first ever season running a championship using Independant Kart Racing logic has so far proved to be a magnificent series. The final round is on the calendar for 8th October 2017, so what a way to end the year!!!
As most of you know, The London Cup has been held at Rye House for many years and has seen some of the greatest drivers in the sport stood on the podium… perhaps this year it could be you!
When is it?
HKC had initially penciled in the 29th October 2017 and the track has decided to stay with this date. This will be run on the Sunday only (so a ONE day event) with optional open testing available on the Saturday
What classes are running?
After much deliberation, we have decided to concentrate on classes we think will fill! We could say “open to every class”, but whats the fun of ‘racing’ if the grids are weak!!? Therefore, the classes available to the IKR LONDON CUP 2017 are:
Honda GX160 Prokart
How will it run?
The itinerary will be on the ryehouseikr.co.uk website shortly, but essentially…EVERYONE IS RACING!!! Yes, even you Bambinos! There will be a brief practice for each class and then into racing! Three heats and a final per class… Winner of the final will take the crown of LONDON CUP 2017 CHAMPION and an EPIC trophy!
Finally rules and regs will be released in the coming weeks, but the day will virtually mirror the current IKR day!
How much will it be?
£85 per class covers the whole day, if you require a transponder then you can hire one from the track at £20, if you have your own, GREAT! the permitted transponders are MyLaps Tranx 160 or the newer MyLaps Trans X2. Optional open practice is available on the Saturday and will be at the usual track rate of £46. Sturday will be sessioned into classes, to ensure safety!
