Welcome to Woodthorpe Kart Club
Woodthorpe Kart Club is an independent Owner/Driver Kart Racing Club and was founded around 30 years ago.
We are a family orientated club whose objectives are to promote fair and competitive Karting competitions and social events within a safe, friendly environment and to encourage all Karters (whether beginner or experienced) to improve their skills.
Because we are independent we are able to do this whilst keeping costs to a minimum in what is after all an inherently expensive pastime. That does not, however, mean that we make any compromises particularly in respect of safety.
Our Officials hold a wealth of experience in motorsport and are always available to assist and advise and at each meeting we have the benefit of an on-site paramedic and St. John Ambulance.
Woodthorpe Kart Club holds ten competitive meetings per year between February and November in which points are accumulated towards annual championships.
We presently run 10 classes but the club is flexible towards this and will always consider class changes to meet with popularity and demand. We are also aware that there are several teams who run more than one class (father and son for example) and every effort is made to accommodate this within the class running order.
Strubby Airfield Kart Racing
Woodthorpe Kart Club meets on an ex-RAF World War II bomber base in Lincolnshire. It is known locally as 'Strubby airfield' but unlike many airfield tracks, we have the benefit of a complete tarmac circuit which includes gradients in addition to flat areas. The track was laid out some years ago but has been altered on several occasions since so as to provide a fast and challenging circuit for all classes.
Off track, there is ample parking and camping facilities (for which there is no charge!) and a restaurant and public house within half a mile for those who wish to indulge on Saturday night. (that said, competitors may be breathalysed before racing so please don't overdo it!).
