Championships

London Championship 

The London Championship runs from March to October each year. This is our most prestigious and invigorating Championship held at the famous Buckmore Park and Rye House circuits (where Lewis Hamilton used to race Karts as a teenager!).

Each race day consists of two championship rounds, each with a number of practice sessions and sprint races. One in the morning before lunch and one in the afternoon after lunch. Each round will earn you points towards winning the championship title at the end of the year. There is no obligation to take part in all rounds, we welcome entries for each round regardless of prior participation.

The Championship is open to those of all abilities aged 16 or older. We welcome all members of Boundless and their guests, from first timers to seasoned veterans

North London Championship Regulations 

Bristol Championships

The Bristol Winter Championship is a fun and friendly new karting championship which takes place on weekday evenings at Absolutely Karting Indoor Kart Circuit in Fishponds, Bristol. The Championship consists of five rounds between November and March each year. Each round consists of a 15 minute practice/qualifying session, followed by two 15 minute races. As each round is a standalone event, there is no need to have taken part in previous rounds.

Dates for the 2018/19 season are: Wednesday 7th November, Wednesday 5th December, Wednesday 30th January, Tuesday 26th February and Wednesday 27th March.

There are also plans for a three round Summer Team Endurance Championship, to take place between April and September. To express your interest or for more details please email Karting@boundlesscommunity.co.uk

The Championship is open to those of all abilities aged 16 or older. We welcome all members of Boundless and their guests.

Le Mans

Le Mans 24hr Team Endurance

We sent two Teams to France in 2018 to take part in the 24 Le Mans Karting Endurance held on the historic Circuit Alain Prost.

Team 1 had continued mechanical problems from the start which put them out of the running. But the organisers gave them the “Tracey Pope” Sportsmanship Award for the way they handled their difficulties, Team 2 came a very credible 29th.

Having completed a third attempt, the Boundless Karting group are ready to start planning the 2019 teams! The event is planned to take place 12 - 14 July 2019.

Do we send a Boundless Team to France for a fourth time or do we rest on our Laurels. Only you can tell us the answer to that conundrum for our future planning is very much driven by the number of volunteers who would like to tackle this 24 hour Karting Endurance in 2019.

By getting organised early the Karting group can take advantage of the very heavily discounted early booking price which applies up until Friday 1st December 2018. We therefore need to send our entries in as early as possible to ensure participation (we are aiming for October if we can). So if you think you would like to give it a whirl why not get in contact with the Karting Group to find out more: karting@boundlesscommunity.co.uk

If we have sufficient volunteers to enter a Team(s) we will register the Team(s) and send you a Le Mans entry form, asking you for a deposit of £100. We can accept the rest of the £320 fee in installments. Please note that all this needs to be done before 1 October if possible.

2017 saw one of the Boundless Journalists attend Le Mans to meet the team and report on the race. Why not take a moment to check out what a fantastic event this was here.
