Imperial Motorsports provides a range of motor related activities at rock bottom prices and accessible to everyone, regardless of experience. Seriously, no experience is required to try any of the following activities!
We compete in the British Universities Karting Championship (BUKC), a national competition which tests us against over 100 other universities in the country. Last year we won the championship! The championship culminates in a 24-hour race during the summer solstice weekend – just like Le Mans.
We regularly host karting trips, with our fleet of competition level karts (X30, Rotax Max, ProKart) as well as rental karts from companies such as TeamSport.
On Wednesday afternoons we organise plenty of other activities at our own personal garage on campus - such as our restoration program where we are restoring our road legal 1980s Mini Cooper and our kart maintenance program where we maintain the competition karts.
We also have a VR simulator rig where our top karting drivers regularly practice honing their skills for the karting championship. The rig is open to all experience levels and is a great way to gauge how you stack up against our other members.
Lastly, we run motorsport trips. This past summer we took a large group on a 5-day road trip to the 24 Hours of Spa, all for just £180pp! There have been whisperings of a trip to the Nurburgring this year…
