Key Information

Format

Each race meeting comprises a short practice followed by three points scoring heats for each driver to determine grid positions for the finals. All drivers will compete in a final.

Participant Restrictions

The minimum age to take part in the event is 8 and the maximum age is 13. Potential drivers must have competed in a minimum of three Rookie Races at Buckmore Park or similar events at other circuits. Proof of lap times or grades achieved elsewhere will be required.

Classes

On the day, the Junior series is run in two race categories, Junior Rookie & Junior Pro. The Pro drivers aged 8-13 years drive the 160cc Junior Sodi Karts. The Rookie drivers are split into two overlapping age classes (8-13 and 12-16) to allow for different growth rates and weights. They too drive the 160cc Junior Sodi Karts. There are trophies for the top three in all classes.
