World Championship

Something of a misnomer in that the race has only ever had entrants from the UK and Europe. Nonetheless there have been attempts to attract other overseas drivers over the years.

At present the race is probably on par with the European Championship - the format is exactly the same in that the event is instigated by the UK club with European drivers invited to take part where possible. British drivers qualify for the event based on points scored since the previous running. The top scoring drivers then start at the front of the grid.

The event was originally conceived by the European promoters and ran in Holland and Germany for the first three seasons before alternating with the UK from 1980. When Midget racing to our specifications ceased in Europe the title was staged yearly in the UK.
