This year's event will take place in Cookham Dean on Sunday 10th September and will be our 11th successive year. So far we've had ten fantastically successful annual events, during which we have been very proud to have raised over £100,000 for our designated charity, the Thames Valley Air Ambulance. It's proved to be a really fun afternoon that can be watched by all the family and the ingenuity of the karts that have been built is something to behold!
If you are thinking of entering a kart, put your thoughts into action by checking how you can do this on the Information Pack page of this website. We are certain that you will have a really fun time in building your kart and the thrill in taking part will lift your spirits. The atmosphere alone will make your skin tingle and being cheered on by more than 2,000 spectators will make all your efforts so worthwhile!
Last year a fantastic crowd turned out on a warm September afternoon to see the 10th annual race, for which 31 karts entered and were watched by a generous crowd that helped raise £15,000, bringing our total so far to over £100,000 for the Thames Valley Air Ambulance.
