4-Stroke Pro-Kart Endurance Races

Do you own a twin-engined 4-stroke pro-kart and want to see how it handles on a real race track? If the answer is yes, the Three Sisters 2-hour Owner/Driver Endurance Race will definitely test you and your kart to the max. Will you have the skill to master the low- and high-speed corners on the North West’s premier outdoor kart track? ...does your kart have the pace for the lengthy straights? you have the determination to keep going for the whole race?

The Owner Driver Endurance Race can be entered individually or as a team of up to four drivers. Racing against fellow kart owners, this highly competitive event begins with a full safety briefing. There then follows a 20-minute practice session and a 10-minute qualification period to establish the starting positions. Then the 2-hour race begins. The championship consists of eight rounds (best seven to count).

All karts must race on Dunlop SL1 slick tyres and have GX200 RPM Sealed engines (four or single seal).
