YOUNGSTERS who joined Tarporley Karting team this term are gearing up for a year of high speed action thanks to a donation from Tarporley Rotary Club.
Tarporley Kart Team is one of the largest school karting teams in England, running 24 team karts, privately owned and maintained by parents and children. The team have up to 44 drivers at each race meeting and attend around 13 race events a year organised through ŠNatska (National Association of Schools Karting). Each year the Tarporley team invites new young drivers eager to give karting a try a chance to join the club. During their first term they are lent race suits and most importantly helmets to use. Thanks to the kind donation from the Rotary Club of Tarporley the club has been able to buy nine new helmets to make sure these youngsters are able to enjoy the sport.
