The 1st round of the British Kart Championship 2019 comes to Paul Fletcher International Circuit.
PF International kart circuit was first opened in 1994 and was, and still is, the brain-child of Mr Paul Fletcher. The circuit is located in the village of Brandon, close to Grantham, in the lovely Lincolnshire countryside.Over the years, PFi has developed and grown and is now recognised as the UK’s premier Karting facility.During 2011, P.F.I saw perhaps it’s largest transformation to date – a track extention that incorporates a bridge with flyover. This sensational new feature has increased the overall track length to 1382m and helped the circuit to secure it’s International ‘A’ grade track licence – the only kart track in the UK to achieve this level. Attaining this grade of track licence has firmly placed P.F.I on the Global Karting scene and has helped to secure several CIK-FIA kart race events to date.
Round 2 of the British Kart Championship 2019 comes to the Rowrah.
Rowrah is a national level Kart circuit, located in Cumbria. It’s built in an old limestone Quarry and as such is situated in a bit of a dip. The circuit hold club meetings as well as some national level events. The 1030M track is reasonably fast, with some fast corner sections and a couple of difficult chicanes. It is easy to find but a long way for most! When you arrive you overlook the track which sits in an old quarry. There is a lake down the back straight of the circuit and an amazing back drop of the Lake District. The track itself is very challenging with 2 very tricky chicanes, 2 hairpins and a number of fast corners. The first chicane is blind and very fast. As you climb up the chicane there is a short straight then you enter the first of the 2 hairpins. They are very tight and perfect for overtaking. After the 2 hairpins you pass back down the longest straight into a long, double apex right hander with a small tight chicane on the exit, the kerbs here are very flat and jumping them is the quickest way. You then flick back down the hill into a very quick right hander, shortly followed by a tighter left. This section is very quick and very enjoyable to drive. You then sweep right for the final corner which is very long and opens out on the exit. Many different lines are used here.
