Hi there,

It's been a couple of years since I've been on here, but thought I'd drop in and see if anyone was interested in doing a bit of karting? I'm organising a team to take part in a 24hr race held in Middlesborough over the August Bank Holiday w/e - we'll be 5 drivers in total.

The cost per person is 180 and I'd need to take a cheque from you pretty soonish if you were up for it.

The race programme is -

Friday 28th - practice from 2-5pm

Saturday 29th - practice and qualifying n the morning and race starts at noon.

We'll have a caravan on site and BBQ etc so it'll be as comfortable as we can make it. We're a mixed ability group and we're not looking for a pro - just someone who fancies having a go and is reasonably fit!

PM or email me if you need any more details (rodgers73@hotmail.com) or if you prefer give me a ring on 07816832601

I'll definitely be there so sign me up. I may have difficulties driving across the Bering Straights though.

The exact sort of replies I expected from this place! I think I've filled the places anyway.

Hope all is well in this corner of the internet :beer:

I worked at a karting track for a few years (Daytona Manchester), I must admit I was bloody brilliant at karting as I was just under 10 stone and regularly beat TOCA drivers and race day instructors in the 12 hour endurance we held every few months. My lap record held for 3 years until they eventually changed the track over after I left :(

We also used to do 24 hour endurance races in Dubai!

Unfortunately I'm a lot heavier nowadays and more suited to racing cars. :D

Thats the downside to karting - weight is such a massive factor. I'm sure there are some 20 stone geniuses out there that will never make it due to being fat bastard :D
