Fancy a go? Still time to enter Beckington Go Kart Rally
SEVERAL streets in Beckington will become a race track for a day at the end of September when the second Go Kart Rally takes place – and there is still time to enter.
The event will take place on Sunday, September 29, from noon, with the teams taking on the fun obstacle course along Warminster Road and Sandy Lane.
One of the organisers, Gary Peters, said: "Children have been busy designing their go karts, with the grown-ups left to do the hard work and turn some quirky ideas into reality – one dedicated grandad has spent the summer building three go karts to take part."
There will be music, hot food, refreshments and lots of children's activities taking place all afternoon.
All proceeds are shared between Beckington PreSchool and the youth development programme at Beckington Cricket Club.
Mr Peters added: "Due to the success of last year's event there is new outside play equipment at the preschool and two newly trained coaches and coaching assistants to run the dedicated weekly training sessions for the children."
Entry forms can be downloaded from www.becking tongokartrally.co.uk at a cost of £10 per team, one driver with one or two pushers.
Entry categories are five to 12-year-olds, families, 12 to 18 year-olds and 18 and over, with additional prizes for overall fastest go kart and the best dressed team.
