Racing Classes

Race meetings take place on the third calendar Sunday of each month. The Saturday before each round is reserved for practice exclusively for Club members. 

In addition to the normal Motorport UK classes the club put a great deal of effort into providing cost effective class options for the club racers.

The club promotes the Junior and Senior Club-Max classes, basically a Rotax engine matched with long life tyres to provide performance and economy. All classes have enjoyed large grids in recent years with club racers enjoying competitive racing on sensible budgets.

Full details of these classes can be found in the download section of the website….
