Llandow Kart Club in 2017

Recommended Posts

As we approach Xmas, the new Llandow Kart Club Committee has been working to make significant changes for the 2017 season.

Firstly - Club Membership. You will be glad to hear that there has been no increase to Club membership for this year. We have however, made a few tweaks to offer better value for money:

Driver - £50
Family Membership (Driver and up to 3 family members) - £55
Each additional driver in a family- £30
Supporters membership - £5

It is our intent to run the season from March through to November with the season opener playing host to this year's Celtic Challenge. Winners at this meeting will be eligible to carry the CC plate for the season and as well as a trophy will also be the recipient of a prize kindly donated by our sponsors. In addition to this, should you join the club prior to February 28th, your practise and race fee for the weekend will be £80. 

In other developments, the club will be adopting Alpha Timing for the 2017 season, facilitating live timing from the club house, online entry and up to date entry lists for each class.

Longer term, the Club are also looking at providing Wi-Fi more widely at the circuit, as well as other subtle improvements to improve your weekend's racing. More on those to follow as they come to fruition.

Llandow Kart Club now has a presence on Twitter @LlandowKartClub, and the new website is ready to go live in the next few weeks.

As with all ventures, the Club will only be a success with support and entries. To that end, please feel free to message the club with suggestions for improvements and please put the word out to get your friends (and rivals!) on the grid for 2017!

Update 12 March:



Good evening. Following Llandow Kart Club's committee meeting tonight, the committee has established that due to the continued low number of entries, the Club is no longer in a significantly comfortable financial state to run MSA meetings in 2017. To that end, it is highly likely that the Celtic Challenge on the 19th March will be the final meeting held by Llandow Kart Club. We would encourage all members and drivers to enter this meeting to make sure that Llandow Kart Club's final meeting is a good one.

The Club would like to thank all those drivers and families who have supported the Club over the years.

For further information regarding this issue, please feel free to drop us a message on here, or via the contact pages on www.llandowkartclub.co.uk/contact/


N.B. South Wales Karting Centre Ltd will continue to organise non-MSA and IKR meetings and Corporate Bookings.

Update 2nd April:



Following lengthy discussions at Committee level on Friday night, it has been confirmed that Llandow Kart Club will not be in a financial position to run any more meetings and will therefore be on hiatus for the forseeable future .

That being said, should financial factors change, the Committee will look to restart MSA racing as and when it is financially prudent to do so.

Due to the factors above, the Committee unanimously agreed that those individuals applying for membership at the start of the year should have the choice of 3 options.

1. Retain membership of Llandow Kart Club as a necessity for racing at other circuits.

2. Receive a full refund of their membership fee.

3. Jim Bee at Dunkeswell Kart Racing Club has offered to "take on" the membership of those wishing to switch their memberships to Dunkeswell, meaning that drivers would pay members fees for that circuit for the remainder of the season. Many thanks to him for this kind offer.

An email will be following shortly to those who have applied for membership where we'll be looking for your individual choices.

N.B. Please note that this post only refers to Llandow Kart Club. IKR and South Wales Karting Centre remain unaffected.
