This year’s Local Finals produced some excellent racing and a number of very close results as students battled to qualify for the Regional Finals. Two Local Finals deserve a special mention. The first is Salisbury where Wessex Raceway welcomed 10 teams this year after having their event cancelled last year due to low numbers. Peter Symonds College A swept the board there with a 100% win record. We were also delighted to welcome Mr Karting at Leamington Spa back as a venue (having missed the last two years) and they put on an excellent event which saw victory for Kingham Hill School.
National champions for the last two years, The Brentwood School, are safely through to the Regional Final for London and the South East where they will face the champions from the previous two years – Debden Park High School – amongst others, including Caterham A who were our champions in 2012. All of the Regional Finals are expected to be very competitive but this line up at Buckmore Park on 21st April is surely worthy of a National Final!
14 teams will line up at Daytona Milton Keynes on 24th April for the Midlands and East Regional Final. Gordon’s School always set high standards but competition is sure to be fierce to qualify for the National Final. The Thruxton Kart Centre play host to the South and South West Regional Final on 29th April and always put on a great event. We are looking forward to seeing who takes the top step of the podium there in what is sure to be an exciting competition.
All roads then lead to the National Final at Whilton Mill on 30th June where the successful teams from the Regional Finals will compete against teams that have qualified from the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland for the honour of being crowned BSKC National Champions 2018.
