This coming weekend (15th/16th July 2017) sees Drive-Tech Ltd host the 2017 IST Charity Karting Challenge in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, where we’ll be making use of our new fleet of Biz karts.
This is the second such event, with the 2012 version having been won (in atrocious conditions) by Will Blackwell-Chambers. Will has gone on to achieve great success in cars, taking the 5 Club Racing MX-5 Cup last season. This year Will is aiming to crack the BRSCC equivalent, which means he is sadly at Snetterton rather than defending his karting title at Drive-Tech this weekend.
Nevertheless, we are delighted to have a tremendous field of drivers assembled for this charity event including a number of Castle Combe legends, current and former competitors across FF1600 and a range of other categories, entrants from the Compact Cup and Porsche Championship that are visiting Castle Combe racing circuit this weekend – not forgetting an assortment of commentators and journalists that are hoping to do more than make up the numbers!
This is primarily a fun event, with the key focus is on raising funds to support the Teenage Cancer Trust charity. The organisation provides support to the hundreds of young people each year diagnosed with cancer, by way of state of the art cancer units, funding expert staff, and providing the added touches that make life more bearable at such a difficult time. It is a hugely worthwhile cause and we thank you all for supporting it. Drive-Tech Ltd are donating all profits from the event to the charity.
The weather forecast currently looks perfect so come along and join the fun.
