All Owner Driver testing must now be pre-booked in advance with payment to be made at the time of booking. This brings the owner drivers sessions into line with the bookings of all our other karting activities.

As I am sure you can appreciate we need to ensure that sessions are organised to take into consideration the classes booked to participate(for example we don’t want to allocate spaces for cadets if we have no cadets coming). We want to ensure that those people here, get the maximum track time from the session.

In addition, we need to ensure that owner driver testing is well supported, and adequately staffed for the number of drivers participating in the session, or offered a refund.

If you have any questions or queries regarding this, please do come and speak to us.

To book in please call us on 01502 717718- payment can be taken over the telephone.

Round 2 Open Grand Prix- The night kicked off with some great driving. We had a lot of new drivers this night showing great promise for the future. Very quick lap times this night with Brett Wheatley putting in 54.8’s in the final! The night was dry and cold so with this came some close clean racing. In the B final was close racing with the top 3 drivers battling the whole way. Brandon Lucas came 3rd in the end holding 2nd place the whole race until the last lap, fantastic considering this was only his 2nd ever race. 2nd place went to Kane Illingworth who had previously competed in the Junior League a while ago so again fantastic result. And 1st place in the B final was Paul Gaston putting in a very quick lap time of 56.0 and winning with a lights to flag victory. In the A final we had Sam Foster who is a heavy weight putting in a great lap time of 55.3. Sam took 3rd place and 1st heavy of the night. 2nd place was Dominic Oliver who managed a 55.2 lap time, and 1st Place was Brett Wheatley who put the quickest lap in as well of a 54.8, winning 2 month on the trott.

Round 2 saw 8 teams take part in last nights Open Team Endurance. Again was a cold night and tricky track conditions. The Qualifying was very close up until the last lap when Jet Racing put in a very quick time in wet conditions. The 1 hour 30 minute race started with Jet Racing on pole followed by Old Gits in second place and 3rd on the grid was See You Next Tuesday. The racing was as usual very clean and fair a few spins trying to get to grips with the changing track conditions. Our new team CD Drive had a fantastic drive to 4th place finish. It was very close near the end with David and Co and Jet Racing. David and Co had 1 pit stop remaining with Jet Racing chasing them down, but a very swift driver change saw David and Co 3 seconds in the lead after the pit stop taking the victory. Well done to all that came along we look forward to seeing you all again next month.
