March 28, 2017 15:20

With the weekend fast approaching, and the 2017 BUKC title still to play for, Jacob Harris returns to the log cabin in the woods to sit by the fire and monologue over the state of the championship: Welcome to the second edition of Championship Chit Chat!


G2GYG | BUKC 2017 Rounds 5 & 6

March 25, 2017 17:09

BUKC Rookies Championship Round 3, and our Premier and Intermediate Championship Rounds 5 and 6 of 2017 were contested at Glan y Gors circuit in North Wales this month, and for the first time this year, we held our Rookies round the day before the main championship. This, coupled with the abnormally decent weather, caused no end of confusion, so Jacob Harris is here to clear things up for those still wondering what actually happened…


Championship Chit Chat | BUKC 2017

March 05, 2017 21:42

Hello and welcome to Championship Chit Chat, with the BUKC’s chit chat champion, Jacob Harris! Aside from the main round reports, I thought I’d do a quick piece about the state of the championship, in between now and GYG, and between then and finals weekend. And here it is!


Oh Rye God | BUKC 2017 Rounds 3 & 4

March 01, 2017 22:16

Rounds 3 and 4 of BUKC 2017 took place a fortnight ago at Hertfordshire’s Rye House circuit. As ever, there was plenty of racing across the two day meeting, and it’s all reviewed below, in text format for your reading pleasure, by Jacob Harris…

What the Buckmore? | BUKC 2017 Rounds 1 & 2

February 08, 2017 21:25

BUKC 2017 got underway last week at a wet and wild Buckmore Park. With 15 races over two days, plus six qualifying sessions and a brief test, the action came thick and fast, but if you’re more of a slow and steady kind of guy (like everyone at that Uni no one likes am I right guys?), the written recap is here!


New Beginnings | BUKC 2017 Qualifiers

January 25, 2017 21:45

BUKC 2017 got underway with two days of non-stop sprint racing across the 19th and 20th of November, and for the first time ever, we streamed the racing live online for the whole world to see! With new drivers, new teams and a new season ahead of us, our handsome new media chief Jacob Harris recaps the action...


A fitting finale... | BUKC 2016 Rounds 7 & 8

April 06, 2016 17:54

All good things must come to an end right? Sadly that includes the 2016 British Universities Karting Championship. After a season of racing at some of the best kart tracks in the country, after countless laps, countless emotions; it all comes down to the final weekend.


Coventry on top up North! | BUKC 2016 Rounds 5 & 6

March 12, 2016 19:57

Four years. It’s been four years since we’d taken ourselves so far north. Karting North East, more affectionately known as Warden Law, was the venue for Rounds 5 & 6 of the 2016 BUKC season. The weather, you ask? Northern.


Go west....to Wales! | BUKC 2016 Rounds 3 & 4

February 20, 2016 10:28

What comes to mind when you put the words ‘Wales’ and ‘weather’ together? We’re not ones to pin stereotypes on entire countries, but it was the morning of the 17th February, it was Rounds 3 & 4 of the 2016 British Universities Karting Championship season, and yep; it was raining.


Buckmore beginnings...and it was dry! | BUKC 2016 Rounds 1 & 2

February 05, 2016 16:03

Three test days, two intense days of qualifying, and a whole lot of waiting. But no more. Entering its 15th year (and now a moody teenager), the 2016 British Universities Karting Championship season kicked off on the 3rd February at Buckmore Park Kart Circuit in Kent.


The H-KARTS Factor | BUKC 2016

February 01, 2016 12:00

Student sport as a whole is entirely unique - the athlete’s ‘careers’ last for just three or four (or more, we’re looking at you PhD students!) years until they ‘retire’ (read: graduate) and go off to find proper jobs in the big wide world.

There's a chill in the air, Summer is almost over. That can only mean one thing...the BUKC is back!


A 24hr finale at Teesside!

June 23, 2015 13:24

First of all, we have a slight apology to make. In our event documentation and on the BUKC site, we boldly claimed that there would be ‘Amazing weather (guaranteed)’. The wet start to the race and the subsequent monsoon (those out on circuit will confirm that’s what it felt like) around hour 3 of the race had us feeling rather sheepish at our clear lack of ability to control the weather. We’re working on it!


BUKC with your own kart!

April 01, 2015 09:39

The BUKC can announce today long-held plans for the future of the championship - the introduction of owner-driver karts to the series.


What a weekend in Wales | BUKC 2015 Rounds 5 & 6

March 17, 2015 15:39

£6.50 is a ridiculous toll charge for anywhere, never mind to enter a slightly different part of our own country. But, for those of us blessed (cursed?) with living in the southern part of our island, it was the price we had to pay for two days of intense racing from Rounds 5 & 6 of the British Universities Karting Championship 2015 at Llandow Kart Circuit, just west of Cardiff in Wales.
