Ultimate Karting Championship to be run under Motorsport UK Permit

Wednesday 23 August 2023

The Ultimate Karting Championship’s (UKC) Rotax National Trophy, its final event of the 2023 calendar (Warden Law, 15-17 September), will be run under a Motorsport UK Permit as the championship is welcomed into Motorsport UK’s karting portfolio.

Launched in 2020, the UKC runs multiple classes – from Cadets to Senior Rotax – and had already been collaborating with Motorsport UK to not only align the technical regulations, but the sporting policies in place to protect and support teams and competitors on and off the track.

Bringing the UKC under Motorsport UK’s Permit will enable competitors with greater access to the sport, a more linear progression, and provides manufacturers with an opportunity to develop new equipment and technologies.

The addition of the UKC is a further boost to Motorsport UK’s impressive portfolio of karting championships, which feature racing across six different categories.

“We are delighted to welcome the Ultimate Karting Championship into our portfolio of Championships for 2024 and beyond,” added Dan Parker, Karting Manager at Motorsport UK.

“Having watched the UKC with interest over the last couple of seasons, it is clear that Paul and his team have a real passion for the sport and offer their drivers the opportunity to compete for some fantastic prizes, and complement this with a modern promotional approach, on and off event.

“Welcoming the UKC into our community will be the first step for us in creating a new Karting Championship Pathway for drivers moving from non-licenced events into Motorsport UK Karting – helping to create a new era for Championship karting in the UK.”
