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 is our 7th season sponsoring the championship, and as each year passes, the series goes from strength to strength. Last season saw an average of 60 drivers participating in each of the 7 rounds, and in 2017, with the addition of new Pro Karts, we anticipate that number to grow!

The championship is run at Teesside Autodrome over 7 rounds, with the best 5 rounds counting towards the final championship standings. The prizes will be fully announced on the championship website but free drives, rally driving experiences and other great incentives are among the already agreed giveaways!

About the karts

The championship offers drivers a chance to race in the our brand new fleet of karts. 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 have 43 such karts, the championship will use a maximum of 35 per class, allowing for spares.
