Thanks to everyone that took part - we had a thoroughly enjoyable year and look forward to seeing all the racing next year!
It was also a ripper spring day for our last club day of the year on Sunday.
A good sized Combined Light class put on an energetic show, and we had some fun with those that registered for our Come and Try sessions after the racing.

Another year and our biggest event is now behind us.
This weekend threw out many challenges to our club with rain, hail then sunshine and all this in the first half day.
A bit of work on Friday saw us able to guarantee the track was in good nick, and able to drain water. This allowed trouble free racing regardless of the downpours.
Moving into the Saturday and Sunday our members, friends and family kept the canteen ticking along nicely, the masses being fed, the toilets being serviced, the cars pulled out of bogs, and still regardless of the testing weather everyone was still smiling.
A very proud moment for our club who have pulled together, and once again shown that we can put on a great show.
Congratulations to the drivers that represented us on the track today regardless of your finishing positions, it was a tough gig out there.
A Huge thank you to the members and businesses that have supported us through our major Karting, and fundraising event for the year that sets us up for the following 12 months.
Well done all.
A big thankyou to everyone that took part in the AGM and contributed to the running of the club.
