BEN the automotive industry charity will be hosting its first Twilight Karting Championship at Rye House Kart Raceway in Hoddesdon on Sunday 7 October 2012.

This two hour Endurance Race will take place between 16:00 and 21:00 and is a great opportunity for racing enthusiasts to test their driving skills against other racing teams and grab that pole position on the grid. There is also a MSA Karting Event taking place beforehand for anyone wanting to get some extra driving tips.

For a team of five drivers the entry fee is only £50 per person. Raising an additional £50 of sponsorship will take 1 second off the teams' fastest qualifying lap time. The teams' total sponsorship can then be the deciding factor as to who is first or second on the starting grid for the two hour endurance race.

Warren Neal, Events and Exhibitions Co-ordinator commented, "The new take on our Karting championship should really put people's driving abilities to the test and make for an interesting evening under the flood lights. We are looking forward to seeing you all there and thank you for all supporting our cause."
