Where It All Begins

The 2018 BKC Iame M1 Bambino Championship

How it will work


Following on from the great year we had with the 2017 BKC Bambino Championship we are keeping the format pretty much the same as last year. The Iame M1 Bambino engine will still be the championship engine of choice for 2018. Next year we will be visiting tracks across England, Scotland And Wales for 10 rounds including tracks further in the south of England that we felt were missing from the 2017 calendar.

2018 will see the BKC appoint an official chief scrutineer as well as trained helpers to keep the racing fair and true. Just like 2017 engines will again be sealed and sent off for detailed testing when the BKC feels necessary (top 3 winners as well as a number of random drivers engines).

We will also be writing and publishing a full set of detailed BKC rules and conditions that will be up loaded to the website once completed as well as officially appointing a clerk of the course who will make decisions at the track. Race tyres will again be controlled Heidenau  (1 set of slicks and 1 set of wets for the season) to be purchased from The BKC website once compounds have been confirmed.


Rounds And Venues


The championship will be held over 10 rounds in 2018 at some of the best tracks (TBC) across England, Wales and Scotland. Best 8 rounds to count.


Registration And Cost


There are only a limited number of places available for this championship due to track restraints, so registering quickly is important because when we are full we are full.

Registration for the 2018 BKC Iame M1 Championship will be £495 and this will include your free welcome pack. Once paid in full this will secure your place and you’re racing number for the season (race numbers are on a first come first serve basis) and the deadline for entry payments must be paid in full before December 2017.  Tyre payment to be received by 30 days before round 1.

We have done everything possible to keep the cost down for the championship again this year to make the racing available to everyone and we envisage the race weekend cost to be £60 - £70 per day to cover the cost of track hire, trained staff, scrutineers and the clerk of the course.

It promises to be another great competitive year and early interest as well as the number of new Iame M1 owners means we are likely to see a lot more new comers arriving on the grid this year as well as some old faces battling it out. The BKC would just like to thank all the Bambinos and parents moving up this year for your support and effort in the 2017 series and we all wish you well with your move into Interkart or cadets classes in 2018.
