Also you will find our plans for next season. Formats, Class structures, pricing, details about our registration process and more.

Please refrain from calling or emailing to register at this stage. We are not ready!! 

However, do feel free to contact us if you have any questions relating to next year.

CHAMPIONSHIP CALENDARS – FORMATS – PRICING – REGISTRATIONS

CADET CHAMPIONSHIPS:

Next year will see the championships increased from 7 to 8 rounds. Starting with 3 Academy Days in March & April, and the Championships start in May.

We have decided to alter the categories to weighted classes, replacing the age classes. As follows –

Cadet Super-Lightweight – 35kg Minimum Racing Weight

Cadet Lightweight – 45kg Minimum Racing Weight (Drivers must weigh a minimum of 39kg with race suit and helmet to be eligible).

Example- If a driver weighs 38kg, they must enter the Cadet Super-Lightweight.

Eligible age for entry remains the same – Minimum age 7 (in year of 8th birthday) up to age 12 (in year of 13th birthday)

FORMAT –

We will be increasing the capacities to accommodate a maximum of 60 entries per category. To manage this the Cadet & Junior Championships will run over a full weekend.
Example – Cadet Super-Lightweight + Junior Super-Lightweight on a Saturday, with Cadet LW + Junior LW on the Sunday. Each of the combined categories will alternate throughout the season.
Please refer to the attached Championship dates.

By expanding to a full weekend, it not only opens the opportunity to increase the numbers, but also design an itinerary that allows more time for lunch and contingency breaks.

This will see drivers joining us for the best part of a full day (Check In will be around 9am). However, I hope you appreciate these changes are necessary to cater for the demand.

Race Format –
Practice 11 Minutes, Qualifying 11 Minutes, Pre-Final 11 Minutes, Final 11 Minutes.

PRE-EVENT TESTING –

Each race day will start with Pre-Event Testing as an optional extra, prior to the race day drivers briefing.
The numbers we can cater for will be limited to 22 Cadet & 26 Junior and offered in the first instance to new drivers looking to try us out for the first time and attain their race licence.
Then any remaining spaces available will be offered to race day entrants only 2 weeks prior.

Please note – Where the availability will be limited and to maintain fair play, entrants will be limited to a maximum of 3 Pre-Event Test entries per season.

REGISTRATIONS –

Drivers that have raced with us in 2022 will be given priority to register before we officially open the 2023 registrations to the general public at the end of November.

On Monday 31st October we’ll be sending an email to current drivers that have competed in one or more races in 2022 to advise us on which championship and which rounds they wish to enter. Including the Academy days.
Please note we are not able to accept registrations until we send the email on October 31st.
Important – Entrants that have competed in all or most rounds this year will be given enhanced priority.

For those that have registered with us this year but not raced, together with our extended database, we will be sending out a notification early in November advising when our registrations will open.
Unlike previous years we will be staggering the opening times for each Championship, which are currently scheduled to ‘go live’ on Monday 28th & Tuesday 29th November.
This information will also be available on our latest news page on the website and across our social media platforms.
