Im going to be back for a week or 2 for Easter, and was wondering if anyone is up for a bit of Karting action at Hooton Park ??

Havent been for a while, and really feel the need to drive quickly an inch off the floor tease

If theres any interest, I can see about actual dates etc..
I know times are tough, but its 30 for 2 15 minute sessions..or we can do a 40 each session, which is a Grand Prix with practice, qualifying and 2 races (I think)

Anyone interested?

Yea, they host the cheshire kartin championship there every 2nd weekend of the month. Cracking races there, marshalled there when I was back over summer. Think Ill be doin it again this summer as well.


Good bit of interest so far then, I reckon a few more and wed get a good Grand Prix session, and maybe a discount. Ill start a list of names of whos interested....No actual details just yet..

In case people dont know, they use proper Twin Engined Honda Gx-160 ProKarts, that have their own racing championship. They are serious racing karts, and a lot faster than your standard single engined indoor karts (Indoor karts usually have bout 5.5hp...these have 11). Track is outdoor as well, so if it rains, its more fun (staying on slicks laugh ) Also, the benefit of Hooton Park, is they encourage racing, not timing laps. First over the line is the winner happy

I remember last year one lad had a geared 125cc (i think it was 125cc) on that track, was immense acceleration compared to the others on track (testing not a proper race)

The arrive and drive Karts there are OK - tend to bog down a lot at the hairpins...

Im gonna see if my mates are getting their Rotax karts out - it a difference between walking and a supersonic jet grin

Depends how fast you take the hairpin, but the track has been widened to allow a longer runoff, so less bogging laugh

Rotax are good..but TKm is where its at, no battery to chug around the place...Soon as Ive finished uni, and have some money, Ill start working on mine.

Interested Stuy ?
