Welcome to Leeds University Union Motorsport and welcome all freshers!
Get down to our stall at freshers fair to hear more about us, and make sure to book in to the Give it a Go session in October. Our facebook link is to keep up to date.

LUU Motorsport has 2 teams in the BUKC (British University Karting Championship), where we compete against over 70 other UK Uni's, in karts capable of speeds of over 80mph and 0-60 in 4.5 seconds, there are 9 rounds at 5 tracks nationwide. Last year we also ran several teams in the Rookie Championship which runs alongside the main championship. This championship is perfect for new drivers.

Visit the BUKC website for more information on the championship:

It doesn't matter if you have never stepped foot in a kart or are the Super 1 champion. Come and join in on the racing or even come along to support the team.
For those with no experience, we have several drivers with many years of experience who are able to coach new drivers and teach braking points, driving lines etc.

We also run an internal championship throughout the year at the local track in Leeds which is a great opportunity to race against other drivers with similar abilities.
The Yorkshire cup is another great event throughout the year which is a series of races against all the other Yorkshire Universities. We had several podium finishes last year and hope to do the same again this year. This series has drivers of multiple talents and so you needn't worry about ability.

We have a busy social calender and we are often found in the pub! Socials are arranged throughout the year and are a brilliant way to meet the committee and other members. The BUKC Finals party is not to be missed and is held at the circuit of the last race meeting. This consists of a day of racing followed by BBQs, camping and a party until the early hours of the morning.
The BUKC 24hr race is held in June and is a team event which involves racing against all the other BUKC Universities in a 24 hour race. This is a brilliant event and another excuse for a party...

LUU Motorsport caters for all levels of motosport interest and is a great chance to either try something new or continue with a life long interest... 

Join and get involved! University is about gaining experience and trying new things so why not come along and try racing!
