The home of kart racing schools recognised by MotorsportUK

Buckmore Park

The Buckmore Park Kart School is a founder member of ARKS and is based at the Motorsport UK licensed 1000m outdoor Buckmore Park Kart Circuit in Chatham, Kent.  

It sits nestled in the North Kent downs and is surrounded by picturesque woodland and following the recent circuit redevelopment by the late John Surtees CBE, it is put simply, one of the most stunning motorsport locations in the United Kingdom.

Buckmore Park has been making pulses race for over fifty years. Since its launch in 1963, it has become the breeding ground for many young drivers, eager to cut their teeth before moving on to different types of motorsport, this list includes F1 World Champions Lewis Hamilton & Jenson Button.

ARKS tests are held on selected dates throughout the year.  All tests must be booked in advance. Please call 01634 201562 for more details.
