SATURDAY 3RD NOVEMBER

Who is SERIOUSLY up for doing a kart race with other PHers on SATURDAY 3RD NOVEMBER before Christmas budgeting rears its head.

I organised such a thing a few years ago and it was excellent fun, with much good-humoured piss-taking, crashes and larks. Certainly brightened a rather gloomy November day, made better by it being all PHers. It's pretty easy to do and everything is provided unless you want to bring your own helmet etc. As with all karting ideas on forums everywhere, people started off enthusiastic and then we only just scraped together enough to cover the booking, so you can imagine that I'd prefer only serious people to add their name.

I was thinking Speedway Karting Centre in Weston Super Mare.
  • £30 each
  • Minimum booking of 10 people split into teams of two
  • 90 minute race, so approx 45 mins driving time per person
If you're seriously interested, please add your name below.

No, we went to Cheddar (South West Karting). It seems at Weston you would get more kart-time as it's teams of 2 instead of 3.

PS. You're still alive then. biggrin How's the missus and nipper?

If I could fetch a lift from around the North Dorset/South Somerset border then you could count me in!


3-4 would be better for me.

Funnily enough, I'm right on the North Dorset / south Somerset border near Yeovil. Happy to give a lift.

Looks like Saturday 3rd is the day most people can make, and the circuit are rarely open on Sundays.

  • 1 1/2 hour race.
  • £30 per driver
  • 10 drivers with teams of 2 (45 mins driving per driver)
  • Start at 4pm
  • Go to pub afterwards for food and talk about my crashes
I will have to pay a £10 per driver deposit upfront, with the rest paid by you (and deposit paid back to me!) on the day.

Is this ok?

1. V8S + 1
2. B3ndy
3. Obi
4. morgs
5. Kodiak
6. High flier
