Time 3:00 pm, January 30, 2020

WE’VE got one slot left in the final qualifier of our fantastic free go-karting challenge – with just a week to go!

The fifth and final regional heat of the 2019/20 Car Dealer Go-Karting Challenge takes place at TeamSport Karting in Cardiff on Thursday, February 6 – so hurry if you want a chance of taking part!

As with the other qualifiers, it will see teams of four drivers competing in an exciting 90-minute endurance race for a place in the final in Leicester on Wednesday, March 4.

This is the second time that we’ve staged the challenge – held once again in association with Close Brothers Motor Finance – and all you have to do for a chance of snapping up that last place in the Cardiff heat is email us at [email protected].

At each qualifier, the top two teams (and a couple of other top performers) will go forward to the grid in the grand final.

Here’s what else you need to know…

What time does the racing start?
Teams need to arrive at the venue before 7pm. Free parking is available. Before the race begins at 8pm, there’s a mandatory drivers’ briefing plus a 15-minute practice session, which will get you used to the layout, kart and pit stops.

Who can drive?
Every driver in your team needs to be in the motor trade – no professional racing drivers or any non-motor traders will be allowed to race. If you’re unable to put together a team of four from your staff, you can combine with other local dealers. As long as they work in the motor trade, they can be part of your team!

Will I need any gear?
No! TeamSport provides helmets, race suits and gloves at each track, so there’s no need to buy any gear you don’t have.

Are there prizes?
Yes! There will be a podium ceremony at each regional round and a trophy for the winning finalist.

How do I sign up?
Any dealership in the Cardiff and surrounding region can apply to enter the qualifier by emailing us at [email protected]. Applications will be put into a hat and you’ll be informed if your entry has been successful.

So, get in quick if you want to take part in this fantastic FREE event!
