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.
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.
