Kart

Kart at Loughborough provides a wide range of activities throughout the year from social events to our ultra-competitive Club Championship.

Athletic Union Club

The Kart Club at Loughborough is a very friendly and social that carters for all. The club activities fall into three main areas:

The British Universities Karting Championship (bukc.co.uk)

An inter-university karting championship, where our fastest members represent the university in ultra-competitive racing all over the UK. Have you got previous racing experience? We need you! Contact us for more information.

Loughborough University Club Championship

This is our internal karting championship, using local circuits and open to all members. Why not come along with friends, and see who really is the best driver? These events cater to a wide range of abilities so you will always have someone to race against.

Rotax Testing and Driver Training (125cc 2-stroke)

We own and maintains a fleet of Rotax Max Karts and have two new proposed event formats which offer a great opportunity for driver development.

  • BUKC Testing. Open to members of the BUKC team, these events will be used as preparation for upcoming championship rounds.
  • Driver Development. Open to all Club members, with BUKC team members offering on- and off-track tuition to help you improve all areas of your race-craft.
