9am to 5pm, Wednesday 8 September 2021
Boundless Karting would like to welcome you to 2 Rounds of the 2021 London Karting Championship. Please be aware that these rounds are currently held on a Wednesday as the circuit is not yet opened on a Monday. However if the circuit starts opening on a Monday we will revert back to our original slot which was on a Monday. Competitors will be informed of this as soon as the organisers are made aware of this.
The Event is open to all Boundless and CSSC Members and their families and guests. All levels of experience are catered for so whether you are a beginner or a seasoned veteran you will find a challenge out there on the track.
The Buckmore Park 1200m circuit is nestled in the North Kent downs and is surrounded by picturesque woodland just off junction 3 of the M2 near Chatham. It is the beating heart of British karting and following the recent redevelopment by the late John Surtees CBE, it is simply as one of the most stunning motorsport locations in the United Kingdom. Buckmore Park has been making pulses race for over fifty years, and since its launch in 1963 it has become the breeding ground for many young drivers, eager to learn their craft before moving on to various types of motorsport. So come down and give it a try, you never know you might be a budding racer of the future.
Drivers: Minimum age 16: Drivers aged below 18 will need their parents or Guardians to sign the indemnity form at the circuit and be present at all times on the day.
Refreshments and food are currently not available due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Unfortunately spectators are currently not allowed to attend due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Drivers need to arrive by 9.00 am for a 9.30 am start.
On arrival all Drivers will need to make their way to the Club House following the arrowed one way system. Once you arrive at the Club House you will be directed by a member of staff to 'Signing On' where they will 'be kitted out (free of charge) with racing overalls, a helmet and gloves (you may bring your own if you wish but they must be approved by the Circuit). Please wear comfortable and suitable clothing for the weather. Don’t wear anything that would upset you if it became damaged or mucky, simple jeans and a T-shirt would be fine. If you do not have proper racing shoes then trainers are the next best thing and remember you will not be allowed to race in any footwear with open toes or heels.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic some procedures may change before the event and if they do they will be sent to you along with the joining instructions 3 or 4 days before the event.
Following reception it’s off for a full Safety Briefing which all Drivers must attend
Event Format: A series of morning and afternoon sprints.
After the safety briefing Drivers will be split into two Groups for a Practice/Qualifying session each. After the qualifying sessions each group will have 3 x 10 minute race which will determine which final race they will be in. Each group will then have a 20 minute final race giving each driver a total circuit time of 65 Minutes driving in the morning session. The afternoon will follow a similar pattern.
Trophies will be provided for the top three drivers in each of the 2 Championship rounds
Championship points will be awarded for individual positions on both Rounds.
