The University of Leicester Motorsport and Karting society is a group for those who love the world of racing. Whether you race cars, bikes, karts, sim-race or just love watching the sport, this is the society for you. We are an inclusive and friendly society who’s main goal is for it’s members to have fun. We hold a number of social Kart races throughout the year and go to a variety of different professional races throughout the season as well as a variety of other socials.
Our main competition is the British University Karting Championship which has a number of different experience based competitions, so whether you’re a complete novice or the seasoned Kart racer, you can get behind the wheel of 2 stroke kart, capable of accelerating from 5-60 in 4.5 seconds and reaching a top speed of 75mph! All of which comes at a fraction of the cost which you would be able to race these outside of University.
Through our light hearted ethos and our togetherness as a society we hope to achieve great things in the upcoming season and we look forward to meeting you!
