UWE Motorsports Club is the home of all motorsport and automotive endeavours at the University of the West of England. Founded with the mission 'To widen participation in karting for students at the university of the west of england at a grass roots level at the most affordable prices', UWE Motorsports has continued to grow and develop into the club that exists today.

We organise a vast range of activities including our very own UWE Karting Championship (UWEKC), designed exclusively for UWE Motorsport members to compete against one another in a friendly enviroment. We also compete against universities from across the country in the British Universities Karting Championship (BUKC) at both rookie and national levels. This also includes a 24hr Le Mans team endurance race, at the end of the academic year.

We run weekly training sessions at Absolutely karting, (Near Fishponds, Bristol) at a discounted rate, for members that wish to improve driver skill, race craft and racing technique.  

When we're not racing, we aim to organise and host motorsport and automotive themed trips and motorsport viewing events, with highlights including a tour of the Jaguar factory at Castle Bromwich among others. Therefore there is always something going on. 

Even if you have never been in a kart or driven a car before you're still welcome to join us - no driving licence is required for any of our events!
