Wizard can a few old guys from the midlands, who were test drivers for a certain company come down an sort out this problem you  have.and resolve it ?

Brentwood sounds like an Industrial estate, but if that's wher'e you race in London we would like to come down and give it a go  NEW YEAR  ????????

I will have to look into a venue, would it be easier to book a more central track for those coming from the north?

What about Milton Keynes?

Hi Guys and girl. I'm definitely getting too old for karting but I still have a go. I used to be a kartist (yes that's the correct word), then I started to live my life through my kids but it gets painful when your son beats you and you are struggling to keep ahead of your daughter! Pro Karts are a bit tame for me because I am used to the instant acceleration from Super-A two strokes but the Thunder Karts at Buckmore are excellent. If you are only used to Brentwood I would recommend a step-up to Thurrock (next to Lakeside) before you go to Buckmore Park (which is the dogs do-dahs by the way). Another excellent track is Rye House (near Hoddesdon).
