If you like F1, karting, motorbikes, or watching fast cars race around a race track, then this is the society for you.

To join our society, sign up on the SU page and join our whatsapp group chat - message us on instagram for the link - and follow our instagram for up to date info @lbu_motorsport on all our events and social. Free to join - we do not charge a membership fee to attend events.

  • We hold a number of different championships throughout the year, including an e-sports and a karting championship taking place all over the North of England - this includes both indoor and outdoor tracks. This year we have planned 6 official championship rounds, with practice sessions at teamsport Leeds and Bradford regularly in place. 
  • As a society we compete in the British University Karting Championship (BUKC), representing Beckett at a national scale. To do this, you must hold a special type of license - to get involved send us a message on whatsapp or instagram and we will be more than happy to get you into the team!
  • We also watch F1 and Indycar, as well as other series, at the Dry Dock, which is one of our sponsors, with reduced prices for pints and food. Every weekend you can expect us at the Dry Dock watching F1 qualifying and racing, as well as other motorsports off season. Every watchalong is free to attend. 
  • Regardless of your experience, we can guarantee this is the most fun you'll have at uni whilst sober! We have different experience categories in our karting championships, so don't worry if you're yet to go. All are welcome, regardless of ability :)
