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.
