Take the next step…

…in association with Club100 Racing, Project One Racing and the MotorsportUK Karting Pathway

Motorsport UK Karting Pathway

Introduced in 2020, first and foremost the Motorsport UK Karting Pathway sets out a method by which drivers and their families can make a start in karting that is cost-effective, accessible and allows drivers to develop through the ranks up to the pinnacle, the Motorsport UK British Kart Championships.

Since the inception of the Karting Pathway, Club100 has been a recognised step giving competitors the opportunity to race in professionally-run championships across a variety of circuits within an affiliated Motorsport UK framework. With the introduction of the Club100 Cadet kart along with championships for younger drivers in the form of the Club100 Cadet and Junior Championships, Club100 now offers a fuller breadth of series to race in than ever before, building on the experience gained as a club since 1993.

Moving forward into 2024, Club100 is looking to help drivers increasingly with the step from racing outdoor nationally in the “Arrive & Drive” arena to the first level of Owner kart racing at the local Club level by partnering with long-standing race team Project One Racing.

STEP 1: Indoor Karting - Race at NKA-Approved TeamSport Karting venues accross the UK, including the British Indoor Karting Championships
STEP 2: Outdoor A&D Local - Drive outdoors at a NKA-approved facility in faster equipment in organised events using rental karts with 4-stroke engines
Step 3: Outdoor A&D National - Race with Club100 in year-long championships, touring many of the UK's best cicuits with lighter, quicker, two-stroke karts
STEP 4: Owner Club - Step up to owning and maintaining your own race kart, passing your ARKS test and competing in local Club championships
STEP 5: British Kart Championships - The top level of karting in the country. Competing against the UK's best to become British champion over a multiple round series
