Junior & Adult Championships

Herefordshire Raceway runs and is involved with several hire kart championships across the year – both adults & juniors. 

These are designed to be either a hobby or stepping stone to greater things but at a reasonable cost.

Whatever your karting experience, there will be a championship suitable for you. If you would like to talk to us to find out more about the races and lap times involved, please call or email us and we will respond to any questions you may have. 

Full safety briefing, helmets, race suits, gloves and neck braces are available at all our racing events. 

 

Your lap times and places will be displayed on a digital score sheet on the large screen in our race centre, so you, your team mates, rivals and friends and family can view your standing during and after each heat. 

The final results table will be available for you to view on the day and subsequently online. 

All race days will finish with a prize-giving ceremony for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places, and a FINAL CHAMPIONSHIP CEREMONY will be held after the final round.
