CALENDAR UPDATE

We’ve had a lot of interest in still running this year’s British Championship as a weekend event, it will now be on 20/21st August, in placed of our grass championship round, which we’ve moved to 23rd October.
Despite rumours we are still running shale meetings, we’ve booked the summer evening for Friday 2nd September which will include finals for this year’s GP. Winter dates will be announced later in the year.
Here’s our updated calendar.
Sunday 31st July Grass Round 2
Saturday 20th August British Funday
Sunday 21st August Grass British Championship
Friday 2nd September Shale Evening & GP at Adrian Flux Arena, King’s Lynn
Sunday 25th September Grass Round 3
Sunday 23rd October Grass Round 4
Sunday 30th October Grass Round 5

Rule Changes

Following this years AGM we have a couple of rule changes.
The first and most important is a safety item, an addition to the back bar rule. The existing rule states the height of the roll bar should be at least 50mm/2″ above the driver’s helmet when seated and a stay bar for support. With effect from the start of the 2016 grass season, there must a stay bar from the chassis to the roll bar joining a maximum of 100mm/4 inches from the top of the roll hoop.

The second change is number boards are to me mounted above the height of the seat back. Also championship boards, eg C plate, E1, GP will still be allowed in addition to  your four standard number boards. We’ve had karts displaying C or E1 on the front and numbers on the side and back making it difficult for lap scorers

All grass meetings this season will be held at
Station House
Station Road
Emneth
Wisbech
PE14 8DJ
This will give our own field a whole year for the new grass to establish.

The WDKRC’s proudest boast is the great atmosphere of friendship and the very family oriented basis on which the club exists.
