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

WDKRC ‘Grass Championship’ race meetings are held on our own club field in Manea, Cambridgeshire. on the fourth Sunday of the month, from April to October. Please see Race Dates for more info and times.

Please see Race Dates for more info and times.

The WDKRC are also the proud hosts, and have been since it’s inception 5 years ago, to the ‘British Championships’ for grass karting.
The ‘British Championships’ are a three day event, hosted on our Manea field in July of each year. Please follow the links to ‘Race Dates’ and ‘British Championships’, for more information.

The WDKRC’s proudest boast is the great atmosphere of friendship and the very family oriented basis on which the club exists. Membership to race with the club starts from the age of seven (7) years, and has no upper limit. Many families belong to and race with the club, seeing many generations of the family both current and past enjoying the facilities and challenges that the club presents. This in no way detracts from the seriousness with which these members contest their sport, with all members racing competitively on the track, whilst maintaining great off the track friendships.
Like all clubs, the WDKRC are always pleased to welcome new members, and offer great advice and support to anyone wishing to join our club. If you would like to just pop along to a race meeting to see what we are all about, please do so. Entrance to our events is FREE to all. If you like what you see and would like to have a go, just introduce yourselves on the day and we will be pleased to welcome you and advise you accordingly.
