Club100 is a UK-based "hire kart" karting championship. All karts use identical Birel chassis and TKM 2 stroke engines and are provided by the club to an equal standard, putting all competitors on a level playing field.

History[edit]

The first Club100 championship was held in 1993. Initially it was a 6 round sprint championship held at Buckmore Park and has since grown into an multi-event series held all over the country at some of the UK's top karting circuits.

In 1995, the sprint championship was split up into two weight categories. 1997 saw the creation of the first endurance championship and this has grown into 4 separate championships for rookies, intermediates, clubman and premier level teams. 2004 saw the creation of the Clubman endurance championship that was a level between intermediate and premier level. In 2007, the sprints were split up again and a separate premier championship was created to accommodate the monopoly the top drivers held. The first winter championship was also held that year with all rounds being held at Rye House. In 2011, the sprint championship was split up further and 2 clubman championships were created (heavyweight and lightweight classes) as a stepping stone to the premier series. The format of the Open championship was changed from 3 hour endurance races for teams to a 60 minute format for individuals or teams of 2. The Advance Leisure series moved to a similar format with two 30 minute races.

Since 1999 the club has been managed by John Vigor. In 2006, he bought all the rights to Club100 from Playscape and moved the base of operations from Streatham in London to Rye House in Hoddesdon. In 2011 the base was moved to Sittinbourne, just next to the Bayford Meadows kart circuit.
