British Schools Karting Registration Open For 2013

1 Mins read

Registration is now open for schools across the UK to register their student’s participation in the 2013 British Schools Karting Championship (BSKC).

Now in its seventh year, the BKSC offers students aged 13 to 18 the opportunity to compete in competitive, nationwide karting competition.

This year’s competition was the most successful yet, with 617 teams from 235 schools competing for the title, with a team of young drivers from Caterham School for Boys securing the crown and a VIP tour of the McLaren Technology Centre as a prize.

Any school, academy or college can enter the BSKC in teams of three, with the total cost of entry being £150 for a team of three students, including use of all equipment, a practice session and entry into the local heats and regional finals if they make it that far.

“The competition was created to make competitive karting more accessible to schools,” said Mark Turner, BSKC Manager. “The BSKC appeals to students from different backgrounds and allows all abilities to take part. Since its launch in 2006, the BSKC has enabled students who are not interested in traditional sports to experience a highly engaging team sport and unleash a new talent. It has also allowed those who are already involved in karting to share their love of the sport with others at their school.”

Teams can be registered at www.bskc.co.uk/register.
