We are UCLU's first ever motorsports club, bringing affordable racing to everyone at all levels, from a fun race against your friends in social events, to competitive racing in the British Universities Karting Championship (BUKC).
At the club we provide our members the opportunity to have fun racing for heavily-discounted prices at tracks in and around London throughout the year. Karting is great fun; a high adrenaline high speed rush bringing a welcome break to the rigors of studying at a world class university. Everyone is welcome, regardless of previous karting experience, we provide relaxed races for those newer to karting whilst some members of the club will get to compete in the fastest karts in Europe, representing UCL in the British Universities Karting Championship (BUKC). So whether you want to cruise nice and easy around a track and have a bundle of laughs along the way, or race at break-neck speed to get the adrenaline pumping, whether you’ve never sat in a kart before but fancy giving it a go or think you are the next Lewis Hamilton, we are the right club for you.

One of our most anticipated events of the year is coming back in two weeks! The annual 6-hour endurance race at Rye House Kart Raceway - where we had our taster - is not only brilliant fun, packed with on-track action, but a great chance to hone your skills, with great subsisides meaning you can get LOADS of track time for much less than the usual pricing! On 02/12/2015, UCL will field 3 teams of 4-12 drivers (depending on how much time people take) to duke it out against the other local unis, with previous years' competition including Kingston, King's and more! Only £20 for HALF AN HOUR of racing, people! Maximum 2 hours per person, we recommend those with less experience take a maximum of an hour - racing for these lengths of time can be very taxing! The event will be an all-day affair from 0900-1700, and you will have to pay for travel to and from the circuit (shouldn't be more than £10). We'll be selling tickets on the link below with each ticket equating to 30 minutes of racing. So buy up to 4 tickets for however long you wish to race!
