Who can enter the SG Petch Championship?

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.

SG Petch and Teesside Karting are keen to promote racing talent in the region, and see this series as an ideal way to help achieve this. 2017 will be our seventh season sponsoring the championship, and as each year passes, the series goes from strength to strength. 2016 saw an average of 60 drivers participating in each of the 7 rounds, and in 2017, with the addition of a new fleet of karts, we anticipate that number to grow!

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