Welcome To Rugby Kart Club

(The Best Club, With the Best Drivers offering The Best Value for Money)


At Rugby Kart Club the emphasis is on having fun whilst enjoying very competitive, but fair and friendly Racing.


We hold a race each month throughout the year from February to December to cover all of our Race Championships.


Full Membership to the Club for 2022 is just £35.00 per year and open to anyone from 16 years of age upwards.  You have to be a Full Member to drive in our RKC Sprint Championship, RKL Whilton Championship & RKC Team Endurance Races, to be eligible to collect points, medals & trophies and to receive email updates.  


The Formats

Our race format for the different series is as follows:-

RKC Sprint Championship is a 10 minute qualifying session, followed by 2 x 20 minute Sprint Races

RKL Whilton MIll Championship is 5 minutes practice, followed by a 12 lap heat 1, 12 lap heat 2 and 15 lap A or B final

RKC Team Endurance Races for teams of 3, 15 minutes qualifying, followed by a 3 hour Endurance Race.  


To race or practice with Rugby Kart Club, you do not need a race licence, so this means that anyone can get into competitive motorsport for a relatively low cost. You can enter as many or as few events as you wish.


The Circuits

The circuits we race at are all outdoors and vary in length. The shortest being 630 metres, the longest 1200 metres. All circuits are marshalled and there is always a driver briefing before each event.


The circuits we use are, Sutton Circuit, Clockwise & Anti-Clockwise, ELK Motorsport, Clockwise & (Anti-Clockwise, coming soon) and Whilton Mill National Circuit.


All of the venues are professionally operated offering superb facilities. They are all located within 60 miles of Rugby, so travel costs are kept to a minimum.

The cost is per driver and includes all equipment, including kart hire, fuel, overalls, gloves and crash helmet. (Many of our drivers prefer to use their own overalls, helmet, boots & gloves and these can be bought for very little cost).


Payment for each event is by Bank Transfer and all of the circuits do require us to pay a deposit for their events, which is non-refundable. The balance must be paid in full prior to the event to guarantee your place. You will be notified of this when booking in.


How do I book?

To race with Rugby Kart Club you must obtain a Membership and then pay your race fees when requested.  All Members are constantly updated by email prior to all events.


Taster sessions and practice sessions can also be arranged from just £50.00 per person.


Karting is probably the nearest feeling there is to driving a Formula 1 car. Many F1 drivers started out in karts and most still drive them today to hone and sharpen their race-craft skills. The late, great Ayrton Senna once said "karting is the purest form of motorsport". So what are you waiting for? Join us now.
