I am a young driver with a lot of potential just not the budget to match it.
I am currently racing in many championships, such as buckmore park junior series, BP Pro Series with the best drivers from around the UK, and the Kent Cup Subaru series.
I have been asked to join the UKC (ultimate karting Championship) but don’t have the funds to be able to participate in a Full season.
I have also tested Ginettas at Blyton Park witch went very well showing pace in the car and speaking with some teams around the track.
I have also recently started an endurance team where in our debut race as a team we finished 3rd after 6 hours.
I have also been in talks with foreign F4 championships and have been offered test days in Sepang Malaysia.
Hi everyone - thanks for taking the time to read this thread.
Unlike a lot of other drivers who've posted, I'm not an owner driver or for that matter a young driver at the start of their racing career. Instead, I'm a 44 year old guy in Kent who races hire karts at Bayford Meadows and Buckmore Park. I'm primarily an endurance racer - the longer the better. In my early twenties I raced Senior TKM at various circuits including PFI, Clay Pigeon and Three Sisters. Now that my kids have grown up a bit I've returned to motorsports as both a competitor and a Marshall (at BMKC club meetings and at Brands Hatch).
Hire Karting obviously restricts the amount of testing I can do, as does family life so I am borrowing some skills and techniques...
My Name is Indy Kassy I am a 17 year old racing driver located just outside the Nations Capital of Washington, DC
I have been Karting since the age of 8 and competing nationally Since the age of 12. I currently compete in X30 Senior class as well as a Briggs and Stratton Lo206 class which is very popular in the United States. When I was 15 I started competing in Road Race Karting events which are basically racing karts at over speeds of 100+ Mph

My names Chris Teague, I'm 30 years old and live in Cornwall. I have recently bought my own kart after years of wanting to get into motorsport. A 2016 Tony Kart 401s Rotax Max pre evo.
It is literally a dream come true to be able to have my own kart after wanting to get into motorsport my whole life but never being able to do it for one reason or another.
Obviously being down in Cornwall I am miles away from anything (apart from the sea) but the circuits closest to me are Mansell, Clay and Llandow.
I am very much a beginner and a complete novice to racing. I have managed to get out to Clay Pigeon for a few practice days and have absolutely loved it. Have already met several great new people and some have become friends. The pit...

Hi my name is Lewis Hodgin I am a young Mini Max driver (number 87) just reaching some personal goals but as karting is a bit pricey and we can’t afford every race weekend or British Championship to bring me and my team to it’s full potential. I have won a few races, lost a few and my shelf is a bit empty at the moment.
I did Rotax British championship last year and as of budget only got to do 3 of the 6 races so if you would like to sponsor me or Team RacingPerfection please leave a text or something of interest
Where it all started
It all started on Declans 10th Birthday with a birthday treat to Buckmore park he loved it and came away with the biggest smile dont think he used the brake once with his foot to the floor the whole time.
Moving to Corporate Karting
Declan had another couple of trips to Buckmore park where we learnt about corporate karting and the Buckmore park race league. at the end of 2015 Declan entered in the rookie championship at Buckmore completing the last couple of races of that season coming 2nd in his first race. In 2016 we started the full championship in Junior rookie and also competed in the full junior championship Declan went on to finish the season as top junior rookie winning nearly every race and coming second...
