We hope this will provide some track time for you, maybe to test a new kart and we can offer ARKS tests as well. For that you need to book with our Examiner Tom Whitehouse (see Contact Us on our website), having purchased the Start Karting pack from www.motorsportuk.org, and bought a test voucher from www.arks.co.uk .

Note that if Bambino’s wish to race in our Winter Championship they will have to buy the pack and take the ARKS test, applying for a Kart Interclub (Bambino) 2021 licence. We will not be able to offer Bambino ARKS tests on the morning of race days.

If you join the club now for 2021, or are a 2020 member, you will receive the club member discounts at the practice days. • Bambino will be restricted to a maximum of 22 karts, and no Junior Incident marshals (pushers) will be permitted in any class.
