Students make national karting final

Three Brentwood School students have won a place in the National Final of the British Schools Karting Championship (BSKC) 2015.  They will compete against the best 25 school and college teams in the country including the seven Regional Champions at Whilton Mill on 18th July, just two weeks after the British Formula 1 race at nearby Silverstone.

Matthew Luff, Callum Brooks and Connor Jupp who are all students from Brentwood School, earned their place in the National Final by achieving first place in the Regional Final of the UK’s largest school karting competition at Buckmore Park. 

The British Schools Karting Championship (BSKC) is an “arrive and drive” karting championship that brings competitive, cost effective karting into UK schools.  The championship has been going for 8 years but already over 10,000 students have raced in the BSKC and competed for the title of British School Karting Champions. 

Will Fewkes, Championship Manager at the BSKC said: “Congratulations to the team from Brentwood School, it is a huge achievement to make it to the British Schools Karting Championship National Final.  The 2015 BSKC has seen over 10,000 students race for the title so just getting to the National Final is already a victory!

“The BSKC is designed to introduce young people to competitive karting. As well as offering a sport that is not always available at a schools level the BSKC provides a simple route for talented students to take part in the exciting world of motorsports.  With the students this year over 10,000 young people have taken part in the competition since it started. Schools use the BSKC in many ways but many have told us that participation has helped to increase their students’ motivation and confidence and enabled them to develop skills that they need both at school and in the workplace.”
