UWE Karting Championship (UWEKC):

The UWE Karting Championship (UWEKC) is ideal for anyone that is new to motorsport, and wants to give karting a go. The 2018 / 2019 UWEKC season has 6 rounds at local tracks, in and around the South West and South Wales area. 

The UWEKC is a fun social championship aimed at everybody of all talents and abilities. With grids averaging around 35 per round, the UWEKC is super competitive up and down the field, so close racing is always guaranteed.

You'll be competing in 4-stroke 250-270cc indoor karts that can reach speeds of up to 35-45mph. 

The format is normally a 10 minute practice / qualifying followed by a 20 minute race. Each round is £25 and covers cost of transport. We offer trophies and prizes to the winner of all races (normally 3 races per round) and an overall driver and team championship torphy for each.
