Kingham Hill Racing

Kingham Hill Racing gives pupils from 1st - 6th form the opportunity to experience the thrill of motorsport, and basic engineering. The team currently competes in the National Schools Karting Association series (NatSKA), although our top driver is also a Junior British ROK champion.

Pupils new to the sport can apply for a novice seat in one of the KHS fleet. They will normally undertake 4 novice events, before being allowed to compete from the back of the grid in a race, and then going on to qualify for a full licence.

Pupils travel to NatSKA race meetings all over the country, at MSA-approved tracks with stringent scrutineering and safety procedures. The climax of the season is the 3-day Nationals, which is the culmination of the championship in each kart class, along with a sprint championship.

Owner-drivers are also welcome to join the team. NatSKA offers race classes for Honda, IAME, TKM and Rotax karts.

US pupils at KHS are able to gain STEM diploma credit through participating: through mechanic support in the workshop and on race days, as well as driving themselves!

For more information please contact the Headmaster's PA.

Kingham Hill racing driver AJ Arnold joins Arden’s YDRA Programme

Kingham Hill Racing's standout driver AJ Arnold has impressed as an outstanding prospect in karting for several years. He is a multiple British national schools’ champion in different classes, and has most recently been racing in Junior X30 and Rotax both in the UK and Europe.

NatSKA Nationals success

After all the trials of the last 12 months, NatSKA are to be congratulated on putting on both a successful season, and a fine 50th anniversary Nationals. We were looking forward to the original venue of Glan-y-Gors, but Welsh regulations meant a return to England, and to Fulbeck circuit, which has felt like something of a second home this year. The weather was better than expected, with slick tyres the order of the day throughout.
