CLUB100 2021 LAUNCHES DECEMBER 7!

  • October 27, 2020
  • John Vigor

Well, what a year 2020 has been so far! A year to forget for most of us I’m sure for all the obvious reasons.

Going into and during lock down back in March, like all small business owners I was filled with dread and concern wondering if we would survive as a company. However, with the support of our government and Motorsport UK, the governing body for our sport, it became clear that we were going to be ok. Certainly in the short term.

The biggest support I have to say though came from you, our customers. I was nothing short of amazed and somewhat humbled at the overwhelming support you have given during the uncertainties this year has delivered.

My sincere thanks go out to each and every one of you that has kept our grids super healthy since the re-start of our racing calendar in July. Not forgetting the maximum entries we received for our 2 test days in June. Thank you.

Below are the provisional calendars for each championship.

UPDATE 20/11/20: Rd 2 for our Endurance, SP60 and Sprint will be at Llandow on the weekend of 27-28 March 2020 (all dates remain provisional until 31/12/20 ).

Here are our plans for next year –

KARTS

As part of our normal rolling programme of renewal Club100 Racing Ltd placed an order with BirelART srl at the beginning of August for a brand new fleet of 43 karts for 2021. I’ve just learnt from my friends Andy Cox & Ronni Sala that construction has begun in October, ready for delivery to Club100 HQ in December.
Our relationship with BirelART is long; we’ve been ordering our karts from Lissone in Italy since 2005. This will be our 6th fleet; their support and the quality and consistency of their product is unsurpassed; and with the support of BirelART UK and ACR, in Bromsgrove, after careful consideration each time, there was no other decision to make. BirelART are the best in the business.

We will be racing brand new BirelART karts again in 2021.

ENGINES

The Rotax Engines will be re-built and fully serviced, which shall include a number of replacement components such as pistons, bearings, balance shafts etc.

BRAKES

We shall be continuing with the Kelgate brake system, which will be fully serviced to include caliper re-builds and pistons replaced as new.

TYRES

You may or may not have heard that Bridgestone have announced the discontinuation of the YDS tyre in 2022. With this in mind we have already begun testing a number of alternatives. The decision is not yet final whether we will be staying with the YDS next year or switching to another manufacturer. I shall keep you informed over the coming months.

PRICING

Our prices for all formats and testing will be frozen for 2021. No increases!!

2021 REGISTRATIONS

We plan to go live for registrations on Monday 7th December, after our final round.

END OF SEASON CHAMPIONSHIPS PRESENTATIONS

Clearly we are not able to arrange an awards evening in the current situation. Also, to try and present to our champions and runners up at Whilton Mill at the final round, outside in the dark and no doubt cold conditions and without a podium, doesn’t sound desirable!

So I think the best bet is to wait until the new year and see where we are at with restrictions and make a plan from there.
