A GO-Karting challenge pitting teachers against farmers, and supermarket staff against nursery nurses is set to take place next month in aid of charity.

The West Wales Karting 500k challenge will commence on Tuesday November 2 at West Wales Karting Withybush Haverfordwest, held in association with Gravells’ Kia Narberth.

It is the biggest charity karting competition in Wales and all teams will be raising vital funds for Paul Sartori Hospice at Home Service.

The challenge will bring together 100 Pembrokeshire-based teams, with this year’s competition including teachers, supermarkets, Young Farmers Clubs, Children’s Nurseries and many more.

“We are asking each team to collect a minimum of £100 sponsorship which could mean the event raising a massive £10,000 for Paul Sartori,” said Toni Dorkings, Community Fundraiser for Paul Sartori.

“Grid positions on the night will be decided by money raised, so the more you raise the further up the grid you start,” she added.

Racing will consist of a 90-minute endurance race with four drivers on each team combining to complete as many laps as possible.

The cost to take part is £140 per team of four drivers. Included in the registration is also a 20-lap practice session for your team.

The winning team from each round will be invited back to compete in the final held on Friday November 17.
