It’s been two long years, but it’s time to pull on your racing suits, don your helmets and get back behind the wheel for the industry’s favourite get together, Karfest 2022, which takes place on 7 July at Daytona Sandown Park.
“Kartfest has always been an amazing event,” said Backup’s Lee Dennison. “We’ve missed the fun of getting together with our industry friends, and the thrills and spills of the teams battling it out for the coveted Kartfest Champions title, so we’re delighted to announce its return.”
Kartfest is a vital fundraiser for Backup. The charity has been a lifeline for so many during the pandemic and, while recovery of the industry is underway, the ongoing work it does, including medical grants and wellbeing support with a 24-hour helpline, mental health counselling grants, MHFA training bursary and support of Addiction and Recovery Aware training workshops, is still essential for the industry, according to Kartfest organisers. “That’s why Karfest has even greater significance this year and why we’d love as many of you as possible to join us,” Dennison remarked.
With a theme soon to be revealed, the day will see three hours of intense racing from up to 30 teams of drivers, all keen to show their prowess on the track, and will include fun challenges, a BBQ lunch and drinks. Team entry from the website gets you six drivers. You can also buy non-racer wristbands.
If you want to join in with the fun, catch up with your friends and help Backup help more of our industry family, visit: www.backuptech.uk to enter your team.
