The Boyndie Drome Open Challenge was established to create a fun and easy way to go racing. The rules have been designed to make it affordable but also safe for competitors. This series is an ideal stepping stone into MSA Racing - where classes are more tightly regulated by trained MSA officials.
If you aren't an owner of a kart, the club run a class called prokarts using our state of the art fleet of 250cc 4 stroke karts. These fuel injected karts are one of the most powerful corporate karts you will find. Following the same format as our owner drivers you'll get a taster of what it's like to go racing. Be warned, spaces are limited and it's popular so make sure you arrive in plenty of time to get signed on! These karts are on a first come, first served basis and cannot be pre-booked.
