WELCOME TO THE BUKC!
Hundreds of students from all over the UK coming together to race wheel-to-wheel in high-performance outdoor racing karts - the kind of karts that Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button spent many years honing their skills on!
You will race at some of the best world-class outdoor karting circuits across the UK on the most powerful arrive-and-drive kart fleet in the world against some of the most succesful karters in the country who have won British karting titles, race in Formula 2, Formula Palmer Audi, Formula Renault, and British GT.
There is simply no other sporting event where novices and experienced alike will get the chance to compete against the very best.
We welcome you to the most intense, adrenalin-fuelled and exciting student championship in the world!
