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:
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**
£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 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.
