Frequently Asked Questions

  • How old do I have to be to take part?
    Any age from 13 to 18 years old as of 1st January 2019 for the BSKC 2019.
  • Is there a minimum height?
    Yes. At all venues the minimum for the competition is 1.57m (5ft 2).
  • How many drivers to a team?
    There must be 3 drivers exactly in your team for all events - of these 3 only 1 can have held an MSA Race licence.
  • How many teams can a school enter?
    There is no limit to the number of teams a school can enter. If your school enters 10 teams you will have your own events and guarantee teams get into the Regional Final!
  • If I am under 18 do I need a parent / guardian to attend the events?
    Yes. All drivers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a member of staff or parent acting in loco parentis.

    One adult acting in loco parentis can sign on behalf of all competing students from a single school.
  • Can we change drivers between teams after the practice session?
    Yes and no.

    Schools that enter more than one team can change drivers between teams after the practice session. Schools that only enter one team can't.
  • Can we enter just enter the local semi-final and not do the practice?

    Before racing we need to be sure that everyone has the ability to race safely on the particular track.
    • What if I have an MSA kart racing license?
      The BSKC is not an MSA event so you will still have to drive in the practice session.
  • How much does the championship cost to enter?
    £61.666666666666666667 per driver (£185.0 per team) but there are some discounts for larger entries.
    • What does the entry fee include?
      It pays for your entry into the Practice Session and Local Final event at your local hosting circuit.
  • If we get through, how much does the Regional Final cost?
    Again, nothing! It is free of charge to those teams that qualify.
  • How much will the National Final cost?
    Again, nothing! It is free of charge to those teams that qualify.
    • But won't travelling to the final cost loads?
