Interested in Karting? Raced before or are a complete novice and want to experience the thrill of racing the fastest arrive & drive go-karts in the U.K?
DMU Karting is a society in which we compete against almost every university in the U.K. in a championship called the BUKC. This is one of the most competitive championships out there, competing at some of the best karting tracks England and Wales have to offer.
We will aim to compete both socially and competitively, with optional karting 1-2 times per term at our local track!
Now the good stuff!!!!
The karts used in the BUKC are simply the finest fleet of “arrive-and-drive” karts in the world. They are nothing like the normal indoor or outdoor karts that many are used to.
This is a proper racing fleet which can accelerate from 5 to 60mph in 4.5 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 70mph. If you have never been in a “2-stroke” kart before, you’ll never forget your first time!
Kart Specs: Top Speed: 70MPH,
If you haven't ever been on a 2-stroke karts, the karts used in the BUKC are unlike anything you have ever been on. They are specially built hardcore racing machines which accelerate to 60mph in 4.5 seconds.
As such every driver racing in the BUKC must attend at least one of the test days prior to competing in the BUKC.
A database is kept of every driver to check if they have attended a test day. Any driver not on this database will not be allowed to race in the championship.
The test days provides with the perfect opportunity to get to grips with the Club100 karts. Each team is allocated a kart for 2 hours of uninterrupted track time which can be shared between 2 and 4 drivers (maximum). The test days are also the place to practice fuel stops and teamwork.
The price of a 2 hour test day is £200 inc VAT payable on or before the day.
The test days are scheduled for:.
- Tues 17th Oct - Whilton Mill, Northamptonshire
- Fri 3rd Nov - Buckmore Park, Kent
- Fri 17th Nov - Whilton Mill, Northamptonshire
