Formula Kart Stars is a national karting Championship that caters for young drivers. With the backing and support from Bernie Ecclestone and Formula One management naturally racing is what we are all about, but at FKS we try to make the Championship a fun and family affair. We understand that although some of our competitors will go on to great things and will follow in the footsteps of Lewis Hamilton and Paul di Resta, many regard kart racing as a fulfilling hobby to be enjoyed with their family. The Championship endeavours to support our competitors who are in full time education by interaction with their schools and for providing a quiet room in the form of our Learning Bus for homework or study in the evenings.
Many of our ‘Old Boys and Girls’ who have indeed gone on to race all around the world, keep in touch by way of our website where stories of their racing can be found under ‘FKS Old Boys’. Some even provide prizes.
FKS is here to help those who want to make the move into car racing and provide contacts and introductions as well as advise for those hoping to make a career in motorsport.
FKS officials are strict but fair and always available and we operate a code of conduct that we believe reflects the age of our competitors and our FOM backers. Carolynn Hoy – Formula Kart Stars Championship Executive Director
