If you love the thrill and adrenaline of karting and racing but don’t have enough people to do your own event or just want to race karts regularly then our 14+ Open Race Night is perfect for you.

Held on alternate Wednesday nights, the race format is a Hull Karting 20 where each driver will take part in a 10 Minute Practise/Qualifiers and have a place in one of the 20 lap finals.

At the end of the Qualifiers we will have a table of each driver’s accumulated points. If two or more finish with equal points, the computer will work out who had the fastest average lap times and move them to the top.

The finals

Your place in the finals is determined by how many points you accumulate in the Practise/Qualifying Session and where you finish on the leader board. Everybody competes in a 20 lap final with people who finished on a similar points total to their own. For example, in an event with 18 drivers this would result in two finals of 9 drivers, leading to a runners-up final (with medals for the top three places), followed by a winner’s final. There are medals for the top three places in the winner’s final.

The session costs only £20pp. All 14-17-year-olds must have a consent form completed and signed by their parent/guardian before racing.

Dates of the events are advertised on our Facebook page so like and follow us to receive details of the next 14+ Open Race Night or other offers.
