A big grid is expected for the penultimate round of the Elite Karting League event in Northamptonshire this weekend. Whilton Mill, located between Daventry and Northampton, is one of the country’s top circuits and the drivers will be using the 1.2km circuit for advanced racers to bring a challenge to the nationwide teams bidding for the EKL title. The drivers will take to the track in identical karts with Biz Kart Evo chassis and equalised twin GX160 Honda engines with drivers being weight equalised to ensure fair competition and exciting racing. They will be competing for League points and the cash prize of up to £1000 for the Race of Champions on Sunday.

The home team, Northampton Knights, currently lying eighth in the League, will be bidding for more race wins after a victory at the last round in Wales. Current leaders are the Teamsport Titans squad from Brighton who are being hotly pursued by Birmingham Wheels Bullets, Cambridge Cobras, Teesside Tigers, Teesside Thunder and the Worcester Raptors.

EKL made its TV debut recently and featured Mike Bushell from BBC Breakfast experiencing an EKL race himself.

Racing takes place at Whilton Mill on Sunday 7th October with 12 sprintraces, a cash prize ‘Race of Champions’ and two one-hour endurance races. Drivers pay £99 to enter with prize money of up to £1000 available at each event. More information can be found on thekartingleague.co.uk and Facebook.com/thekartingleague.

Kat Pope, Elite Karting League Coordinator:
“With Whilton Mill being in the Midlands it’s very accessible so we have a lot of interest for teams wanting to try EKL, especially after being on BBC Breakfast, which is all good news for full grids. With the season end approaching fast I think the teams realise they need points this weekend so I think the racing will be even closer than ever before.”
