UWE Motorsport is the home of all motorsport and automotive endeavours at the University of the West of England.

Activities include our very own UWE Karting Championship (UWEKC), designed exclusively for UWE Motorsport members to compete agaisnt one another in a friendly environment. We also compete against universities from accross the country in the British Universities Karting Championship (BUKC) at both rookie and national levels. There is also a 24hr Le Mans 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.  

We host Formula 1 race viewings and organise various car-related trips, the highlight of last year's being a tour of the Jaguar factory at Castle Bromwich.

Even if you haven't even 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!
