About Kart

Loughborough Kart is the most successful University karting team in the UK, with 5 National Championships in 2002, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2017 and Vice-champions in 2019. Every year we take the best karters Loughborough has to offer to compete in the British University Kart Championship. Think you've got what it takes to race for the team? Then come see us at the AU Bazaar (28th September) and sign up to see if you can impress us at the trail. Below is the BUKC Calander for the coming year.
