Professional karting as a corporate and sporting activity has shown tremendous
growth in the last 15 years. From just one indoor circuit operating in the UK in 1986, there are now over 200 professional circuits in both the UK and Europe. Millions of people are now enjoying this leisure past-time.
Several attempts have been made in the past to set up associations to support this growing industry, but with limited success. Most have depended on high fees and subscriptions being paid by members with little return.
The NKA is giving you the opportunity to join an association which charges minimal fees with maximum return. Our income is achieved through offering consultancies in all aspects of circuit operation, product manufacturing and commission on sales and advertising.
By joining, you will become a member of the fastest growing karting association, which in consultation with the Health & Safety Executive has drawn up the guidelines for safe operation of karting circuits. Fluent and experienced in all aspects of circuit management, safety issues and legal advice, we are only a phone call away.
The National Karting Association is also a member of the Motor Activities Training Council (MATC) and as such, when becoming an NKA member, you also automatically become a member of the MATC.
The membership fee is £395.00 per year for a full member for one circuit and £295.00 for associate members and additional circuits. Membership includes the official NKA Guidelines for safe operation of indoor and outdoor circuits - revised January 2007.
You will also receive a full inspection for each circuit registered. You have the option to pay the full amount straight away or you can pay by direct debit over 12 months. Whichever method of payment you choose, you will be sent your Guidelines and Membership Certificate once your payment is received.
