2013 Charity karting event

Places for this years Charity karting event are now available. If you fancy taking part in this years 6 hour team endurance event in 75mph karts around one the countries best outdoor karting circuits contact Paul

We would like to take this opportunity to once again invite you to take part in our 6 Hour Endurance Kart Race to be held at Buckmore Park in Kent. Last years event raised just under £18,500 by the teams which in the current climate was another terrific result.

As any of you that have recently taken part will be aware this event is extremely popular & has become a victim of its own success and is now often oversubscribed by the end of February. The prices of the karts remain the same for the 4th year running with Buckmore Park once again kindly let us have the karts at a reduced rate as their own contribution to our charity.  Although the kart costs will now be £400 per kart this is still significantly less than their brochure price, (for a team of 5 that’s only £80 each for 6 hours of fun).
