What is the UKAC?
Find out more about the Series.
The United Ukingdom Autogass Championship (UKAC) started in 2013, it consists of five rounds over the course of the season, visiting different venues each time.
What's great about the UKAC? It's a fun series that provides thrilling heats due to the way they are run, but this also provides a close faught championship in each class with many going down to the last round, if not the last race! Not only is the racing exciting, it is always a relaxed and friendly environment, where you are guaranteed a fun weekend and everyone is there just to enjoy themselves. No dramas, just pure Autograss at it's best.
The UK Autograss Championships is a five round points Championship run on selected venues which are spread around the United Kingdom. The unique format used for the qualifying heats enables the racing to be fast and action packed.
Using this format ensures that the winner at the end of the season is a very worthy Champion. The Championship produces 26 class title winners and three overall UK winners. Classes are Mens, Ladies and Juniors. There will also be a few competitions ran throughout the Series, one being the Z-Car sponsored Mini League, which is in it's third year in 2016. This is being followed by the infamous Miniworld Magazine.

2016 Committee Write Up
The Series, direct from the Committee.
On behalf of the whole UK Autograss Championships Committee, may we thank all drivers and hosts for making the 2016 Season a great one for the UKAC.
We started firstly with a Champsionship opener at Oxton Raceway, the home of the Nottingham Autograss Club where we were presented as always with a cracking venue and a track in top-spec quality to kick-off our Championships.
In June we moved to new territory and visited the West Midland League for the first time in the history of the UK Championship and were presented with good weather and a great set up at the Ovals, Lyonshall - the home of Cwmdu who have a busy season next year as they prepare to host both Mens and L&J Nationals events. Good Luck to you all from the UK Committee!
There were a few mishaps in Rounds 1 and 2 for a few people, including our very own Simon, who took a tumble at Cwmdu and ruled him out of the meeting after picking up a heat win at the event.
After a great and successful weekend at Cwmdu, the momentum continued and we moved south once more, and returned to a League which has supported the UK Championships since the very first season - the home of the South Somerset and Wessex Clubs, the Southern League at Bearley Raceway.
Another great round hostsed by great hosts in the control of Ray Wyeth - we've read some great reviews on the Grand Prix too - so we hope that the League are giving themselves a great big pat on the back for a great season's racing near Yeovil.
For Round 4, we travelled back to the midlands, this time visiting the Shropshire & Telford Autograss Racing Club (STAR) where 320 or so racers signed on for the weekend's racing - a weekend forecast with some heavy rain provided some sticky moments on a polished track, but with the hardworking crew from the STAR Club, they pulled off a fantastic weekend's racing for our penultimate Championship round.
And then finally, it was back up 'North for the final round, with many classes undecided, and all to play for. The entry this time was a little smaller than other meetings, but the Sturton Club nonetheless co-operated with each other and despite the efforts of mother nature to spoil the occasion, the Sturton Club ploughed through the schedule to complete early on the Sunday afternoon.
We can safely say that as some new hosts welcome the UK Championships to some new venues, and we return to some old-faithful hosts, we really are looking forward to another successful season in 2017! Are you coming with us?!
