About us

Royal Holloway Motorsport is the fastest sports club in the RHUL Student’s Union.

We welcome everyone with an interest in motorsport, and also those who either want to get into motorsport and even to compete. We participate in the British Universities Karting Championship (BUKC) which is open to everyone who wants to take part, no matter how much experience you have. We also now participate in the newly established British University Sim Racing community (or BUSR), where we participate in everything from casual games to full on competitive leagues.

Whether you want to be a competitive driver for the uni, watch races with other enthusiasts, or just want to look at fast cars, Motorsport is the club for you!

SOCIALS

We'll be hosting a whole load of socials through the year, from race watching socials to sillier stuff like RC Car races and pub crawls (all with appropriate social distancing measures, of course). Even if you don't want to be in the karting teams there is still plenty to take part in!

NOTE: We are aware that motorsport as a whole has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are working as hard as we can to offer the most to our members.

Membership

Currently, due to the ongoing public health situation, we are only offering a standard, non-competitive, social membership (£5 termly). This will allow you to take part in any social events run by the club without paying an additional charge. If competition is able to resume, we will allow members to pay for entry fees and other race day expenses on an ad hoc basis.

Subject to the situation improving, we aim to eventually offer a more comprehensive, competitive membership, which will include subsidies for entry fees and other expenses related to competing.

Events and Activities

  • Race watching socials: From our flagship Formula 1 socials to regional racing cups, we can host any race social our members ask for, providing there is interest.
  • Sim Racing: As well as the return of our time trial challenges, we will also be participating in the BUSR, in both social and competitive capacities. This is open to all skill levels, from the casual arcade racer to full on competitive sim racing - we have something for everyone!
  • Socials: Whilst we are a club focused on motorsport, we are also just a community of people who happen to share a common interest. We aim to host a variety of activities, from trips to the pub to F1 driver spotting at Top Golf Surrey, we have plenty going on off track.
  • Karting (Subject to the COVID-19 situation): The club's main competitive league is the BUKC. Entry is open to all skill levels from Rookies to the Premier Class. Even if you have no experience in a kart, there is always something for you.
