The 2018 BKC Comer Bambino Pooled Engine Championship
Same Engines Same Tyres Different Drivers!!!
How it will work
Due to popular demand we are proud to announce the 2018 BKC Comer pooled engine Championship for next year. This championship will be aimed Drivers who are either just entering the karting world or are not yet ready to race with the older Bambinos. Due to age of the children this event is aimed at and the safety of the the drivers we feel rather than a race format it make more sense to be held as a time trial. This is still a very exciting event that teaches the kids to drive their lines and karts in correct manner and will set them up well for full races when they move up to the Iame M1 class. The winner of the race is the one who sets the fastest lap.
We have decided to pool the engines for race weekend to make the racing as fair as possible for the kids and it will stop people tuning engines to unsafe speeds.
Although this is still at its early stages we can pretty much confirm this is how the format will run, but as we want everything to be perfect and not rushed we may need to alter things slightly at a later date but this will be confirmed in due course.
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 Comer Bambino Pooled Engine Championship will be £495 and this will include your free welcome pack. Once paid in full this will secure your place) 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.
Hiring of pooled engines for the full season is just £995 which represents excellent value for money over a full season. This takes all the cost and headache of visiting engine builders and the worry of engines breaking down at race weekends as well as the original cost of purchasing your race engine or engines if you have more than one.
To ease the pain for some people the £995 can be split over 3 easy payments. The first payment of £495 to be paid anytime between the opening registration date of 16th of September 2017 and up to 30 days before the first race date which will be held at the end of February or beginning of March (date TBC). Once the First payment of £495 has been paid in full this will secure your pooled engine and your chosen racing number for the season (numbers will be on first come basis).
The second payment of £250 will then fall due after round 2. Then the final instalment of £250 will be required straight after round 5, this will complete all payments for the championship except race weekend.
