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.
This email is to tell you about our next event, a 6 hour team race at Rye House versus a bunch of other unis on 11 December 2013.
Because of the length of the race, we'll need to leave early (i.e. you must be at Tottenham Hale before 8.30AM, exact departure time will be determined later) and you'll also have to have your whole day free. Unfortunately the track are not willing to allow late arrivals.
The racing promises to be very exciting! We'll have an alumni kart to compete against as well as a load of our BUKC competition.
The price is at £50 per hour - it's great value, and given the length of time in the kart it's not to be missed!
If you're interested make sure to add your name to our spreadsheet here, along with the length of time that you want in the kart. If you're not in our facebook group, please could you send your email back to us as well so we can get in touch about payment arrangements (please note that we will need complete karts, i.e. a multiple of 6 hours in total.)
Please put your name down as soon as possible, as we'll be organising payment for the event very soon.
We also ran this event last year and it was great fun!
Thanks to everyone who came to our second taster event - I hope you enjoyed it as much as those who went to the first one!
If you want to keep coming to our great events, or be a part of our karting team, you'll need to buy membership. In addition, we'll tell you about some of our upcoming events at the club in this email.
