The Motorsport UK British Kart Championships are delighted to announce today (Wednesday 17 June) the eagerly anticipated Rotax calendar for the 2020 season.

The Championship will kick off at Lydd in Kent in August followed by rounds at Warden Law, Clay Pigeon and the season finale at PFI in November. Championship titles are up for grabs in the following Rotax classes; Mini Max, Junior Max, Senior Max and 177/Masters classes once again and the Champions will yet again have the opportunity to represent the United Kingdom at the Rotax Grand Finals in Portugal come January 2021.


2020 Motorsport UK British Rotax Championship:

Round 1: Lydd – 21-23 August*

Round 2: Warden Law – 18-20 September

Round 3: Clay Pigeon – 16-18 October*

Round 4: PF International – 13-15 November*

*177 /masters Championship round.


“The Rotax calendar was perhaps hit hardest by the suspension of events due the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Dan Parker, Kart Manager at Motorsport UK.  “With the Rotax Grand Finals normally held in November, it looked doubtful whether we could squeeze in a calendar before that date, potentially preventing our champion drivers from being able to represent the UK. However, with the move to Portugal and the change of date to January 2021 for the World finals, we were able to get everything in place for the British series. It has been a constant juggling act to fit around other calendars and other series, but we will be ready for a fantastic contest and four terrific events. I would also like to thank the UK Rotax distributor, JAG engineering for its help in putting the calendar together and the support they show the Rotax drivers in the series.”
