Shenington SuperPrix, E Plate championship and Historic Revival
The 2023 Shenington SuperPrix and Historic Revival on 14-16 July will again have the finals live streamed with sponsors logos by Alphalive. A large entry is expected with drivers competing for the prestigious E Plate (the karting world’s English Champion) in the following classes: IAME Waterswift Restricted, IAME Waterswift Intermediate, Junior TKM, TKM Extreme, TKM Clubman, Junior X30, Senior X30, KZ2 and 210 National. The E Plate can be used at any kart club. The usual Rotax classes will still be available for entry.
The format will be for practice on Saturday morning, then timed qualifying in the later afternoon, followed by two heats and a final over the remaining weekend. Friday practice is open to all normal classes, whether entered for the weekend or not.
In a change for the event, competitors in the E Plate classes (except for 210, TKM Clubman and Waterswift Restricted) will be required to buy control slick tyres from the club to use in the racing. These need to be purchased at the same time as the entry fee which is £145 for Shenington members and £160 for others. All competitors this year will have their slick tyres scanned to be barcoded.
The top three in IAME Waterswift Intermediate, Junior X30 and Senior X30 will receive free entry tickets for the IAME International World Finals, subject to the usual age requirements, fourth and fifth provisional entries. The E Plate winners in Junior TKM and TKM Extreme will receive a £100 engine parts voucher and TKM Clubman a £75 engine parts voucher courtesy of Tal-Ko.
The club puts up two large marquees, one of which is dedicated to static displays of historic and classic karts, lovingly restored by their owners. Most of these also put on displays on the track. Around 100 of these karts are expected and their entries should be made on the BHKC Alpha system. Click here for the Historic karts programme.
The social side of the SuperPrix is very important and there will be a bar on Friday and Saturday evenings. Friday evening is Pizza night, and Saturday has the famous hog-roast with salad asides alongside music and entertainment. All competitors are given a free ticket for the hog roast.
The meeting is very much the club’s premier event of the year, and Shenington KRC wishes to thank all their regular sponsors for their support, especially Tal-Ko and John Mills Engineering. Friday is an open practice day, Saturday has some practice followed by heats, whilst Sunday sees the remainder of the heats and then the Grand Finals. Spectators are very much welcome, and commentary will be provided on Sunday. The live streaming will be left on Youtube and last year’s event can be found by searching for Shenington Superprix 2022. Many hundreds of spectators are expected.
