Kart 2. Sorry chaps, moust-dash

Des (pilot), he has procured most of the parts for the build and is a veritable stig of the dump. He also did the building of the cart. Nathan (co-pilot), did the welding of the chassis, and most of the building on the cart. Then we have three pusher powerhouses, Adam, Jonathan and Bradley, ready to send us flying down the course! Very appropriate as we are based out of RAF Odiham.

Kart 6. Ka-chow! 2

  

We’ll Float like a Cadillac, sting like a Beemer!
Okay, here we go. Focus. Speed. I am speed. One winner, twenty-nine losers. I eat losers for breakfast. Breakfast? Maybe I should have had breakfast? Brekkie could be good for me. No, no, no, focus. Speed. Faster than fast, quicker than quick. I am Lightning.

After just missing a podium finish last year Lightning is back with a vengeance.

Kart 9. Brum-hound SSC

  

Our team is made up of three local engineers: Lee, Will and Andy. We are all keen followers of the Bloodhound Supersonic Car effort (Will even has his name on the car) and we also remember the 1982 children’s show “Brum” very fondly. Our kart will be an optimistic coming together of the two parties with the aerodynamics of Bloodhound and the style and unbridled happiness of Brum!

Kart 13. The Phoenix

  

Building on our success in 2017, the new and improved canoe now features 33% more wheels. Spurred on by the size of last year’s kicker the canoe is now running our Dakar spec suspension system with a whopping 75mm lift built in. One thing we are happy to leave unchanged is our driver (the Red Stig) who has fortunately forgotten his 2017 crash owing to mild concussion.

Kart 14. Ride like there’s no tomorrow

  

We are a group of friends who are looking to raise funds for a great cause whilst having some fun. As a group of dads to young families we hope to inspire and encourage our kids to get out there and help others. Mobility Trust is a small charity that provide Powered Wheelchairs and Mobility Scooters to those with reduced mobility. They support people who cannot access such equipment from the NHS, other statutory sources or afford to buy it themselves. They aim to help people who simply have nowhere else to turn. Giving them the ability to regain a level of independence and open doors to live their lives to the full.

Kart 17. Return of the Macbeth

Sponsored by Macbeth 

A crack team of insurance specialists with soft hands and limited DIY skills set out to be kings of Hermits Hill, with little hope of actually being kings of the Hermits Hill looking at last years entries. However, we do look forward to having a cracking time with fellow competitors and meeting a bunch of you on the day. Come and say hi and give us a big cheer as we hurtle uncontrollably down the course. Thanks, from all in the Macbeth paddock.

Kart 18. Team Craven Motor Club

  

Team Craven has moved from motorised sport to Boxkart racing… “Eileen” was designed and built by Phil Walbank out of a Reading green waste bin and a mobility scooter owned by a nice lady named Eileen.

Eileen cost a grand total of £6.95 to make (that was for the tin of paint), everything else was reclaimed. She came 3rd place in the 2017 Englefield Boxkart event AND, 1st place!! in the junior event.

Driver Gary King has been known to jump out of perfectly safe airplanes, climb huge rocky type things called mountains and says this is his greatest challenge to date.

Kart 25. Team Reading Metal Recycling

Sponsored by Reading Metal Recycling 

Last year the team from Reading Metal Recycling gave us one of the most innovative 2 man karts. Constructed from green recycling bins, one of the racers actually faced backwards careering down the course at 30+ mph. This year they have made some minor modifications to reduce the weight and hopefully increase their speed – let’s see how they get on.

Emma – Burghfield Common native, came up with the bright idea & the real team leader!
