In just three weeks’ time over 90 go kart drivers will pit their wits against each other when they suit up to raise money for The Wisdom Hospice. For 90 minutes, teams of three will push the pedal to the metal to take the chequered flag and drive off with the Friends’ first Go Kart Challenge title.

Friends’ Chief Executive, Martyn Reeves, said: “We are proud to be working with MEMS on this event, our first Corporate Go Kart Challenge. Their sponsorship, and the response from local businesses, has exceeded our expectations and there will be more than 30 teams battling it out for the honours on the night. We are planning a successful and enjoyable evening to raise much-needed funds in support of The Wisdom Hospice.”

There are just five team places still available for this fast and furious event. Teams of 3 can enter the 90-minute go karting endurance challenge for £250 and includes an amazing Hog Roast Supper. Fancy a challenge?
