2024 Junior Championships

Further to news earlier in the year, Club100 is expanding the Junior Championship to more tracks and regions across the nation. 2024 will see the number of rounds increase from 8 to 10, forming a National Championship. The Junior season will start with 4 Academy Days across February and March, with the Championship itself starting at the end of March.

With the increase in championship rounds, the number of dropped scores shall also change. With two scoring races for each driver per round, the best 8 rounds from 10 shall count – i.e. the best 16 scoring races from a full season of 20 races.

The minimum racing weight criteria for drivers shall be the same as in 2023. Junior Super Lightweight will continue with a 60kg weight limit, Junior Lightweight 70kg. Drivers with race suit and helmet who weigh 63kg or higher shall be eligible to compete in the Lightweight category.

Age eligibility for the Juniors also remains unchanged. To compete in the Junior races a driver shall be between a minimum of 13 years of age AND in the year of their 14th birthday and a maximum of 18 years of age AND in the year of their 19th birthday.

Junior drivers shall once again use the full-size Club100 karts for their racing. Therefore as in 2023 any driver shall also meet the strict minimum height of 157cm / 5’2″ and minimum entry weight (with suit and helmet) of 41kg.

Maximum entry size for a Junior round shall remain at 78 drivers and the race format remains as per 2023; Practice, Qualifying, Pre-Final and Final sessions all of 11 minutes in length with each driver competing over a single day for each round.

Pre-Event Testing

Pre-Event Testing shall be on offer for drivers once again in 2024. Due to high demand in 2023, changes will be made to accommodate for more drivers to receive the opportunity to test ahead of race events.

As such in 2024 drivers will be offered a single 11-minute session as opposed to the two sessions offered this year. This doubles the capacity of drivers who can take part in these sessions up to 60.

The option to book Pre-Event Test Sessions will be offered when we call you to run through and confirm your 2024 registration.
