Ok guys another cracking event.....

this time Karting :D

Rafe005, Stuart, and i have been chatting about this, for those of you that don't know Stuart is currently driving in the 250 National Championships, his website is here

mansellracing

Dunkeswell club is putting on enduro events after our practices on sat

Basically the racers will be practicing during the day, then in the afternoon/evening there will be (for up to teams of 8) a 30 min practice/qualifying followed by a 90 enduro race


Dunkerswell, near Honiton
Dunkerswell

Not far from Jct25 of the M5

If we can get a team of 8 together the cost will be £22.50 per person so good value for money and if you get there early you can watch the racers practising

I have done a bit of karting in the past and £22.50 is really good value.

I am still to confirm some more details on this but we are looking for 8 people, well 7 as i will not be missing this one :D

As soon as i have more details i will let you know, this has the possibility of being a great day out

::::some final details::::

We will be reuired at the track for 5pm, this gives us a chance to meet up, have a banter and a coffee, from there we will sign in suit up and go racing...

there will be two teams of 4 and this is an endurance race :thumbs:

look forward to seeing you there

we have 5 weeks and counting until this one, 2 places gone and 2 provisionally gone.

this promises to be good fun and if you are competitive then this could be for you

It does depend though, as we have racing the next day and its knackering (Jay came down to see us today so can back me up on this one :) )

That looks good, and also out of the way of moving parts if it decided to part company with the bracket again :lol:

Right guys, slight amend......due to a lower than expected uptake they have changed it to an hour enduro and reduced the cost to £80 per team.....which means if we can get 8 (which i really hope we can, I have 2 here wanting to come) we can have 2 teams at £20 each

How does that sound? More time in the kart for less money :thumbs:
