Ten regional karting events will be held at various locations throughout the UK, commencing at the end of October. Forty competitors will participate in each regional event, the format of which will be a team endurance race. The top team from each regional event will be invited back to race in the Grand Final, which will take place at the Daytona circuit in Milton Keynes in March 2011.
