With little over a week to go before the 2020 season begins, the team at Rye House are super excited to see some ‘proper’ racing on our circuit!
With clear rules and plenty of pitlane banter, Rye House aspires to provide a fun & friendly race meeting for all!
Racing is on the SECOND Sunday of each month, we concentrate on FIVE classes:
Comer Bambino, Honda Cadet, Senior Rotax, 177 Rotax and Junior Rotax.
Regarded by many as one of the most technical tracks to master! Rye House has seen many greats grace the circuit including Jenson Button, David Coulthard, Lewis Hamilton and Ash Sutton.
With so many greats already starting out at Rye… it’s now YOUR turn!
Entry into each round is simple! Click the link below & follow the instructions on screen. If you haven’t setup an account yet, you must do so before it will allow you to proceed. A speedy option is also available to register using your Facebook details. Feel free to book into multiple rounds!
After creating your account, the system will also offer club membership. By becoming a club member you will be included in the championship scoring table for the season. The cost of membership (£30) will be redeemed over the course of the season by receiving a membership rate into each round. In-fact, you will save yourself a tenner if you plan on racing all year! Non members will be charged a higher entry fee. Once you are a registered club member, the system will automatically reduce your race entry from £70 to £65 per round!
If you have not raced with us before, we expect you to hand in your completed proficiency forms at sign in on race day. Please print a copy below.
Rye House IKR to become Motorsport UK governed from May 2020
Since the fragmentation of the HKC in 2016 (our MSA affiliated club), team Rye are extremely proud to have built a well-attended independent race series to ensure the circuit remains in the presence of owner driver sprint racing!
Having spent the last 3 years running solo, our framework is to focus on safety, good fun, strong grids & of course; encouraging more drivers into the sport via other streams of the business.
The IKR series really has exceeded expectations hence why we have been invited to become a fully-fledged member of the MSUK once again.
Aside from the credibility of becoming a member of a recognised organisation, through the permit, we automatically fall under the governing body’s £100,000,000 public liability insurance policy.
Having recently been rebranded, reassembled & restructured, Motorsport UK really is on target to revitalise our sport! With their new approach, MSUK have adopted many of the IKR processes to eliminate the detrimental issues to club level racing. In a nutshell, they are cutting out the nonsense and focussing on consistent blanket policies to ensure racers receive a uniform experience across the country.
In tandem, Motorsport UK are also supporting circuits with staff training and assistance to allow racetrack employees to become licenced, therefore, much of the team at Rye House will remain at your service
Now we are realising recognition from our governing body, Motorsport UK, to which we are very proud to become members of. Since 2018 Motorsport UK, lead by their new chairman David Richards and CEO Hugh Chambers have a new impetus and ambition to grow the sport in the UK. Their recognition of all Karting disciplines is welcomed and will not only increase the membership but will create revenues to use and implement improved services and projects. Of which we will be a part of going forward.
