I've been offered some spare places on a pro karting event at 3 Sisters Race Circuit (near Wigan). It's a 2 hour Endurance race in teams of 4 in twin-engined pro karts. There's also a 30 minute timed practice/qualifying session beforehand.

Driver & re-fuelling strategy is left to the team. The circuit is about 1000m in length & the karts are powered by 2 x unrestricted 160cc Honda 4 stroke engines.

This is considered to be the next step up from indoor karting & is a proper kart racing circuit, as used by the RAC British Kart Grand Prix. The karts are capable of speeds up to 70mph!

It's 45 per person, teams of 4 required. The event starts at 6pm.

I'm going with a few lads from work so i thought i'd see if anyone else fancies joining us? Monies will need to be paid in advance, either to me & i'll pass it on or i can give you the details of the organiser & you can pay him directly. He's organising it for people at my old company. They have 12 teams so far & the event can have up to 20 teams so it should be an eventful event!

To me, this looks like the ultimate karting event. Anyone up for it?

nice one chaps - if we have one more you've got a team of 4 sorted already! the guys at my work are people who've been karting before but no-one is a pro or anything

the guy who is organising it i think is pretty good & does alot of karting but the event is just a general corporate event for anyone interested

i can't bloody wait!!!

If it was a weekend maybe but i cant make it during the week. Ive already got a full day full of patients booked in and believe me its more haslte than its worth to try and cancel them all now. If you end up going on the saturday then let me know cos yeah i might come down then.

That was quality!!! Think i was the slowest in the team though but im blaming an unfair weight disadvantage rather than my driving skills (or lack of). Great fun though, and im deffinately up for it again. Need to get more people though.
