As we've been discussing the Club100 and COVKARTSPORT arrive n drive championships recently it only seems fair to mention some other good routes into karting for people. The OPEN Endurance Karting Championship is a really good way for new or exisiting Karters to make use of their equipment whatever the class. Basically it employs a handicapping system so whether you are in a 14hp Prokart 4 stroke , a 20hp TKM, a Rotax Max, or even a Biland theres a chance for you to race against other teams. The other good thing is you can pool the cost with your mates, so that a few of you could get together and purchase a Prokart say (prices usually from around £350/400 upwards) and have a chance of overall victory against Max's, Bilands etc
Heres a link to their regs page http://www.openendurancechampionship.../oekc_regs.htm
Navigate your way round from there.
They have just released their 2011 dates - looking at the cost, spread between a team of drivers you really get a lot of seat time for your money.
