Karting

Welcome to the Karting Club!

Are you looking for a thrill? Wanting to meet like-minded individuals with the same interests as you? Or simply want to try something new? We are the club for you!

We offer Karting to a range of skill levels so regardless whether you are a beginner or have been karting before then there is something we can offer for you. 

We are a group of individuals who share a passion in Karting and all things racing and reguarly go out to a variety of indoor and outdoor tracks nearby. 

What do we have to offer for you?

  • A fun and exciting time go karting with like-minded people who enjoy the activity as much as you do
  • The willingness to teach and advise you on karting and how you could improve your time and technique
  • Fun filled socials and other exciting events such as trips to TeamSport tracks and other racing-inspired trips
  • A chance to compete in the British Universities Karting Championship

Do I need to bring anything to events?

No you don't need to bring anything with you to sessions however it is compulsory to wear balaclavas when karting but these can be provided if you do not already have one. However, you're more than welcome to bring racing gloves, racing shoes and balaclavas if you have any of them already. Race suits and helemets are provided by the venue.

I want to join but don't want to take part competitively?

That's completely fine! A large majority of our members don't take part competitively and simply meet with us every few weeks for casual karting. We welcome anyone who wants to take part and are always willing to help you improve and get you to a level where you may wish to compete. 

Would I be able to try Karting without comitting to a membership?

Absolutely! We offer one taster session for all prospective members where you'll be able to take part without having to commit to purchasing a membership. Shoot us an email over at contact@uogkarting.com and we'll be able to provide you with more info regarding this.
