Ever wanted to experience the thrill of driving around a circuit in a race spec kart but never had the chance? Well you have now! The Motorsports Association of Great Britain has introduced a nationwide scheme aimed at encouraging young drivers into the fantastic sport of karting for just £5. Karting is the traditional entry point for motorsport. Many of the world's greatest drivers, including Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and our own Nigel Mansell, all started their racing careers in a kart. Dunkeswell Kart Racing Club, in association with the Mansell Raceway circuit, has been selected as the Southwest venue for this exciting initiative. If you are aged between 8 and 16 and want to enjoy the thrill of karting simply contact the circuit on 0844 544 9070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place. The next session will be on September 20, but book early to avoid disappointment.For your £5 you will provided with safety equipment and a qualified instructor to guide you through the basic skills required to drive a kart. After a comprehensive safety brief you will then be let out on the circuit for five laps of the superb track, the southwest's premier circuit. Drivers will also receive a post drive debrief and a record card. Cameron Jones, current Club Champion in the MiniMax class, started out in the Cadet class and thinks the scheme is a fantastic way of getting young people into the sport.
