Motorsport Society

The Motorsport Society is revving its engine and is ready to go racing!

Welcome! We're a brand-new society and we're seeking new members!

We're a society by racing fans, for racing fans. This is Heriot-Watt's community for talking racing, watching racing and most importantly: GOING RACING!

Our aims for the upcoming year include:

  • Start the HWU Karting Championship, in which our members split up into teams and compete against each other!
  • Enter the British Universities Karting Championship (BUKC), which takes place over four rounds during Semester 2!
  • Enter the annual BUKC 24-Hour Race that takes place in the summer!
  • Organise society social nights and race-viewing parties!
  • Plan a trip in the summer. This could be to a round of the BTCC, or if we can drum up enough demand, perhaps even the Belgian or Italian Grand Prix!

Never tried karting before? No problem! We want to welcome all students to get involved, regardless of prior experience. As long as you have the desire to learn clean and fair racing, we can all help each other to become better and quicker racers. Likewise, if you're an experienced racer, you can be sure to find a challenge with us!

Come and get yourself on the grid with the Motorsport Society!

To get involved, contact us on social media (@HWUMotorsport), or send Jack an email at!
