Round 5 – July 2015

 

Welcome to our Annual Cancer Research Charity Fund Raising Event at which we raise money in memory of two of our racing members who passed away at an early age.

We started with the Chris Hart Challenge for TKM. Chris passed away in his 50’s, followed by a challenge for Minimax in memory of Robert Bailey who passed away at the tender age of 14.

We have once again organised a Hog Roast and other activities on Saturday Evening so we hope many of you are staying over.

There are now Challenge Trophies for most of our classes and Formula Blue have their Goldrush Challenge – so competitive racing is expected.

The committee would like to impress upon all competitors, mechanics and officials the importance of safety on the track, so if you are inside the fence you must stand in a protected area.

We would like to thank all those that have assisted in putting on this event for your enjoyment. We would like to thank you for all of your support.

With your help, we have been able to raise £750 this year. Whilst its not as much as we have in previous years, we are still so thankful for those of you who took the time out of your personal schedules to help us make this another event to remember.

The Soap Box racing was a huge hit with quite a few drivers picking up their tools and taking up the challenge! Here are the winners from the various categories:

Category Soapbox Driver(s) Winning
Farthest Travelled GoldFinger Clay Raceway Deferred
1st Overall Cancer Fighters Jake Adams & Ryan Taylor-Trueman £50

Also, the Human Table Football found itself quite busy right before the first game was due to kick off with teams basically being formed in the queue.. Congratulations to the Blue Babes who walked away from the pitch with genuine authentic Clay Pigeon Kart Club International Caps. Here are the results:

1st Round

Good evening ladies and gentlemen!

After a very special (and eventful) Round 5 of the Clay Pigeon Kart Club Championship which included, not only the Cancer Research UK fundraising weekend, but the Gold Rush Challenge from Tabor Karting in association with the NKRA which handed out Gold Sovereign’s to the successful drivers, I am happy to let you know that the Championship tables have been collated and have now been updated on the Championship Page of our website.

 

Our committee meeting was tonight with the final figures for the charity weekend having been calculated. Be sure to keep an eye out on the next few days for the info.

A HUGE thank you to all of you who were able to make it to the circuit this weekend. Drivers, family members and friends and spectators alike, all of you helped us raise money for a worthwhile cause.

Hi Guys
Just a quick one to let you know that the circuit will be running practice on Saturday from 9:30 – 16:30. This will allow more time in the evening for some fun and fundraising.

Its great to see the entries already pouring in, but if your one of those who haven’t got yours in yet, don’t forget to get your entries in by tomorrow night to ensure you have your place in the program! – online entries will be available until the end of the week.

I thought that might get your attention!

The Big Weekend is fast approaching with not just 1, not just 2, but 3 sets of prizes available for Round 5 and the Cancer Research Fundraiser event on 12th July.

Its amazing to see entries already trickling in across the board with a couple of noticeable absences: Cadets?? – where are you?! and Blues?! – just a reminder, Tabor Karting and the NKRA are offering up gold sovereigns AND free tires for the Junior and Senior Blues at this event whilst hosting their Gold Sovereign Challenge!

After the belated Committee meeting on Tuesday evening, we can confirm on the attractions list, as well as the Soap Box Derby will be Human Table Football as well as a Bungee run. Don’t forget there will be more to get your teeth stuck into on the Saturday night at the circuit after practice, so make sure you get your entry in to avoid disappointment!

Thank you to those few who have offered to help out over the weekend. Whilst we appreciate you will all have a busy weekend at the circuit and you will all want to enjoy the Saturday evening with everyone else, we do require some more volunteers to help us raise as much money as we can for this worthwhile cause. Any amount of time you feel you can donate will be a HUGE help. Just a reminder that volunteers will get a free portion of the Hog Roast as a way of saying thanks!
For anyone who wants to help out but don’t feel they have the time, if you can donate any prizes for the raffle, that would be superb. There will be buckets and/or donation pots around for anyone willing to stick their hand in their pocket to help progress research against these horrendous diseases.

Now – to the headline..

The subject of alcohol on the Saturday night was raised, we feel its worth mentioning that there will not be any alcohol sold on site. Just remember you all have to get up on the Sunday morning! 😛

The countdown to Round 5 and the Cancer Research UK Fundraiser has started. Here is all the information you should know about next month’s event.

HUGE thanks to Max Tadd for making this!

Special thanks to Max Tadd for the poster and JoJo’s Fotos on Facebook for the images.

For the past few years, we have held a special annual event specifically targeted at raising money for Cancer Research UK. With the Robert Bailey and Chris Hart memorial trophies among others up for grabs, the event has been a highlight of the calendar. Combined with special guests and attractions, drivers come from far and wide to take part. We have raised tens of thousands of pounds so far and we are looking to raise even more in the years to come.

This year, we are happy to announce that the event will take place on Sunday 12th July at Round 5 of the CPKC Championship. On the list of attractions for the Saturday night, after the practice session, are an assortment of inflatables (for the big kids as well), a Hog Roast, Music, Raffle, a Kart Simulator as well as the special one-of-a-kind Clay Pigeon Soapbox Race with a course utilising a downhill section of the circuit complete with ramps.

But wait, drivers wont just be competing for the Round trophies and the Memorial Trophies! The NKRA and Tabor Karting have got together to offer special prizes for the Gold Sovereign Race for the Formula and Junior Blues. Check out our Previous Post for details.

Whilst our posts are typically targeted at drivers, next month more than most, spectators are welcomed with entry on the Sunday just £4 per person with all proceeds from all of the racing and attractions going to Cancer Research UK.

If you would like to enter the Soapbox race, please do remember to let us know to help us schedule the evening’s entertainment, all driver entries can be posted as normal, either online or via snail mail.

If you would like to donate some raffle prizes, we will be more than happy to credit you or your company when the prizes are awarded. Please do let us know. if you wanted to volunteer some time in the Saturday evening to help out, we need people to help man the attractions. All helpers will qualify for a free portion from the hog roast :) – just let us know.

 

So what are you waiting for? – Get Your Entries In Now!
