Open Practice Day.

Saturday 9th October.

Welcome to Rissington Kart Club.

Situated in the heart of the picturesque Cotswolds, the Little Rissington circuit offers superb high-speed racing under Motorsport UK rules for all major karting classes, from Cadets to the awesome 250 Gearbox karts. With its fast, wide sweeping bends, billiard smooth surface and big run-off areas makes it one of the best drivers’ circuits in the country.
Rissington prides itself of being a friendly club, run by the members for the members. The club particularly encourages novices, families and visiting drivers. It is also possible to take your ARKS test at the track.

We are located on the Little Rissington RAF Base. The postcode for the Airbase itself is GL54 2QB. Access to the circuit can be found on a small lane between Upper Rissington and Great Barrington. Look for large silver metal gates that show signs for the Glider Training.


Please note these important points if attending the circuit next weekend:
NO overnight camping – this is an MOD (and currently MSUK) directive.
Please note that there will be a track & trace point prior to the paddock – each vehicle will be stopped and all personnel must be temperature checked and registered as attending. Please ensure you wear your mask.
The gate to the circuit will open at 7.30am on Saturday morning & will remain supervised until 10am (then locked) – a contact number will be available should you have to leave or you’ve been delayed arriving so that someone can let you in/out.
The gate will reopen at 5.30pm and everyone must be off site by 7pm.
This will also be the format for the Sunday.
Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you all next week.
Many thanks
Debbie – Chairman

On behalf of the club, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of the kind drivers whom unprompted (and without knowledge to the club) donated £50 each at the weekend. The Committee were deeply touched and overwhelmed by your support and want you all to know that the monies raised will go towards purchasing new starter lights. Without your kindness & support the starter lights would have remained on our wishlist well into next year, as track maintenance and repairs always take priority.Thank you all again.Debbie - Chairman ...

As a club we have come to an agreement and will consider running Bambinos if we can get a minimum of 7 drivers as we've got to use rhe track time fairly across the board. We can mix junior, senior and gearbox classes. Unfortunately we can't run really small numbers hence the reason we mix classes. Should only 3 Bambinos enter, we unfortunately wouldn't be able to run them. ... See MoreSee Less
