The Northern Karting Federation is a clubman championship designed to give the Club driver a chance to go for a championship without incurring too many costs in travel and entries. The idea is that the Championship contenders race in the club grids, therefore helping the smaller clubs at their meetings, and also giving the competitors a decent grid to race in. The competitors race only against each other for points and, although they are racing with non-championship drivers, they do not take points away from our competitors.
All classes are running this year subject, of course, to minimum registration numbers, and they will run to the regulations for each class outlined in the 2016 Kart YearBook. All our dates and venues can be found on our registration slips – one for the Junior and Senior drivers and one for the Gearbox drivers.
Once again, the ABkC have asked our organisation to run their prestigious Formula KZ UK and Formula 250 National Super 4 championship. We have successfully run this Championship in previous years and the grids continue to get stronger each year.
We do not run controlled fuel or tyres for our championship, although one set of tyres only is allowed per meeting and fuel to MSA guidelines is applicable. The entry fee for each round is an all in fee of £100 which includes Saturday practice and Sunday race fees and if you are competing in our Championship, for the championship round only, you do not need to be a member of PFI.
The NKF Championship for Juniors and Seniors is run over 8 rounds with 2 full rounds being dropped to give our overall champions.
The ABkC Championship rounds are scored over 7 rounds for the Formula KZ UK and Formula 250 National classes with the three lowest heat and one final scores being dropped to give our overall champions.
For the first time this year, and on request from drivers, we will also be awarding round attendance points which will count towards your overall scores. Attendance points will be counted for every round you attend and will still be counted on your dropped score rounds.
If you like the idea of the Championship have a look around our website to get all the information you require but, if there is anything not covered here, then speak to Malcolm Fell on 01229 463748.
