Based in Silverstone, UK, KartSim provides karting simulators designed specifically for the karting industry with unrivalled life-like turnkey simulation that uses the latest technologies. 

As part of a broad partnership, in 2024 KartSim will have a presence within the BKC paddock, enabling the simulators to become a central part of race preparation for competitors and teams. KartSim branding will also feature trackside and in the livestream coverage of every BKC round, which reached 1.5million viewers in 2023 alone. KartSim will also offer championship prizes for competitors. 

The Wera Tools British Kart Championship has developed into one of the most competitive kart series in the world, with many international drivers starting their racing journey in the UK before going onto international success.  Alumni include Ferrari Academy and MoneyGram Haas F1 Team reserve driver, Oliver Bearman, F2 driver Taylor Barnard, F3’s Arvid Lindbald and F4 rookies Gabriel Stilp and Freddie Slater. 

With 12 race weekends, 500 registered drivers and 22 nationalities, the BKC is unprecedented in the opportunities it presents for young, talented drivers looking to make their mark. 

Tony Irfan, Managing Partner, KartSim: “We are delighted to partner with Wera Tools British Kart Championship this year. The championship has a long history of developing the racing careers of British racing drivers and it is hugely exciting to assist with this process, both this season and in years to come with our dedicated karting training and simulation solutions.”
