The Motorsport UK Wera Tools British Kart Championships are thrilled to announce the first category dates of the season ahead as the series reveals the 2023 calendar for the Rotax classes.
Fresh off the back of team UK’s record-breaking week at the Grand Finals in Portugal, the Rotax Championships will do battle over five intense events which will also include the new Micro Max UK and Rotax Mini Max 950 classes.
Britain’s premier kart series has ensured feedback from competitors has been considered when creating the new-look calendar, forming an exciting schedule of events for the year ahead. Visiting a range of top-class and familiar venues across the UK, the season will also see a trip to a new circuit on the Rotax tour in recent times.
The popular Whilton Mill circuit near Daventry kicks off the season for the Rotax drivers who will compete for the first title of 2023 as the coveted Rotax `O Plate` meeting takes place in March.
Kimbolton in Cambridgeshire hosts the all-important BKC opener in May, before a trip into the heart of Wales as the Rotax Championship visits the GYG circuit for the first time in 3 years in June before a natural break for Championship drivers in July.
The series then heads North of the border to Scotland and Larkhall on the August Bank Holiday before heading back to Karting North East at Warden Law in September, with the finale scheduled to take place at PF International in October.
