We are running an Arrive + Drive Karting event this Friday, Friday 16th August. No previous experience is required to take part. The event will begin at 6:00pm and finish around 8:00pm. The cost is £15 for a 10 minute session, or £30 for three 10 minute sessions. However we don't have facilities to accept credit cards at the circuit, so we will only be able to accept cash.
Every driver will receive a lap by lap print out for each session they take part in. You can use the print outs to analyse your consistency throughout your session and hopefully use it to improve your lap times.
There is a prize for the fastest driver on the day. The Prize is a free entry into the 4th round of the Castle Combe Karting Championship on Saturday 24th August.
