    Right then guys and girls,

    Following a cry for help for the son of a fellow ASN member @Garth_S3 we are holding a charity karting event to help raise money for young Ben.

    More about Ben's story can be found here:

    http://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/funding-help-requested-for-my-autistic-son.252558/#post-2555623

    http://gogetfunding.com/aba-for-ben/


    This fantastic event not only helps towards a good cause but allows us proper petrolheads to enjoy lots of adrenaline fuelled fun on the track!

    It doesn't matter if you are a complete novice, semi-pro or have never been before. A full driver briefing will be given before we are left to burn some rubber on track.

    So, here's the score:

    We will be doing what TeamSport brand as 'IRON MAN 40' this is broken down below;

    *Full driver briefing
    *10 min qualifying
    *40 min race

    This allows us to make the most of the time on the track and ensures all drivers get fair and equal usage rather than eliminated and be forced to watch instead.

    We need 16 drivers to secure exclusive access of the track so get your names down ASAP.

    **MAXIMUM OF 16 DRIVERS - FIRST COME FIRST SERVED**


    Pricing:
    £50 Per Driver
    *£5.00 of this will be going to Ben's charity to get him the help that his family are so desperately searching for.

    ****PAYMENT****

    Payment will need to be paid to myself directly via PayPal gift (friends/family) - NO FEES.


    *****Please PM me for further details on PayPal payment****


    Deadline for payment is Tuesday 27th October (1 week from today) - This is because we need to pay a deposit to TeamSport for the reservation to be finalised.


    Unfortunately, payment upon arrival is NOT accepted at this event and is therefore important that ALL payments are received before 27th October.


    Location:
    TeamSport Karting (Leeds)

    Leeds,
    West Yorkshire,
    LS10 1NQ

    Due to the popularity of our centres, TeamSport Indoor Karting runs a very tight schedule so as to accommodate as many drivers as possible. It is, therefore, very important that your drivers arrive at least 30 minutes before your scheduled start time. Any drivers arriving after the safety briefing has started may not be allowed to race.

    Fantastic, well done Shaun!
    I'll be there, probably with my wife and Ben :)
    If we get too many people wanting to go, I'll give up my place driving and just attend to cheer you all on and thank you in person.

    I think so, at least for now. I've passed this on to a few of my friends but I'm not sure if any of them can make it yet. If we run out of places, so be it.
    Thanks

    I'm totally gutted... I can't attend now, so I don't think you will get to meet Ben :-(
    I've just been told that my scheduled foot operation is at 8am on the 21st. Talk about shitty timing. I'm going to try to talk my wife in to driving me straight from the hospital after the op, so at least I can be there with Ben. It will depend on how groggy I am from the general anaesthetic and how soon afterwards the surgeon will let me leave.

    I'll send someone else in my place to drive since I have already paid.
    Not happy at all.
