Race report – Round 5 – GYG

National Kart Cup descended on GYG in North Wales for Round 5 of the championship and final round of the Northern Cup. Another new track for a lot of the drivers but there could be no complaints, from the stunning scenery and glorious weather to the fantastic facilities (there’s a shower!) and a great track. […]


Round 4 – Lydd

Lydd Kart Circuit, certainly one of our favourite tracks of 2017, where we experienced blazing hot weather. Would we be so fortunate twice? Pretty much, yes, warm and sunny all weekend, which was enough for Mr Nick Manning to finally debut his new custom race suit. Thanks again to Attaq Motorsport for donating this prize, […]


Round 3 – Rowrah

An almost unanimous vote taken in the bar at Clay Pigeon just before the final round of NKC 2017, between a few well-oiled drivers, decided that we’d be heading to Rowrah in 2018. We’d heard good things about the place but it exceeded all our expectations. The setting, the facilities, the weather, the track, the […]

NKC 2017 – Season review

Well where did that go? It seems like only a few weeks ago we turned up at Hooton Park to scribble over a load of tyres. And yet here we are, reminiscing on the inaugural NKC season. We’ve said it several times already but here it is in print, we really couldn’t have hoped for […]


NKC Round 4 – Race Report

The overcast weather we were promised didn’t materialise so race day was held in blazing sunshine and high temperatures. Was this a factor in so many having engine problems? We will probably never know but we certainly experienced an unusual rate of attrition off the dummy grid. This was our biggest meeting yet with 15 […]


NKC Round 3 – Race Report

Already we are past half way, following another successful meeting at Llandow. We benefitted from a very quiet track on Saturday, which meant more track time than anyone could ever need, helped by dry conditions all day. Rob Cox appeared to see this as some kind of challenge and clocked 2 hours of running on […]
