About the karts

The championship offers drivers a chance to race in our BIZ JK1 kart fleet. These Karts are 20kg lighter than the standard hire kart and have been fitted with new T2 GX160 engines, which means faster lap times and closer racing. Teesside Karting has 43 such karts, the championship will use a maximum of 35 per class, allowing for spares.

Who can enter the NRG Sprint Series?

The championship is open to anyone 16 years and over. It is currently the North of England’s leading hire-kart sprint series, allowing new and experienced drivers the opportunity to compete in a low-cost, competitive championship, without need for capital outlay.

NRG Cycles and Teesside Karting are keen to promote racing talent in the region and see this series as an ideal way to help achieve this.

The championship is held at Teesside Autodrome over 7 rounds, with the best 5 rounds counting towards the final championship standings.

Heavyweight and Lightweight classes both offer two sub-classes of Pro, Clubmans and Rookies running within the overall championship, with all classes now competing in the same format of 10-minute practice and two 20 minute races.

Price is £65 per round and a one-off registration fee of £10 when booking the first round.
