What did you do last weekend..... Rotary went Karting

Rotary Club of London Karting Day for West Lea Specialist Sports School from EdmontonThe Rotary Club of London  arranged a Karting day for a quarter of the pupils from West Lea School in London with young racing driver Albert Carter aged only 9 years old. From the Rotary donation a group of 25 children together with their parents all went to Trent Valley Kart Club the home of British Karting to watch the first round of the club championships on Sunday April the 7th 2013.
The event took place at the very fast 1382 metre world famous PFI International Circuit near Grantham where Formula One champions have trained. Here the West Lea School children aged from 4-18 years old together with their parents and Mr Julian Halford a member of staff from the specialist sports school enjoyed the racing while learning about karts in the pits with Albert Carter and his racing team.
The Trent valley Kart club team also pulled out all the stops to help the Rotary club provide a first class experience and even enjoy a track walk with Nigel Edwards the Club Chairman along with his fantastic team from Race Control that provided education, admission and a special goodie bag packed with fantastic gifts for every child present from West Lea school.
After watching the racing the children were able to learn about kart mechanics and what it means to compete, as Albert Carter shared his passion for karting, gave his new friends autographs and more goodies from NGK, Teng Tools together with his racing team supported by Lucas oil.
Kaz Aston the Sports Lead from the Rotary club of London helped arrange the event to provide a fun while educational motorsport experience to continue inspiring the disadvantaged children and keep the paralympic legacy moving forward in 2013. Kaz was so excited to hear the children gave top marks for the day and even an 11 out of 10!
A high number of Father’s present also found the racing exciting while enabling their children to learn about safety, mechanics and impacts of faster speeds from Albert Carter.
As well as being an excellent host for the day Albert achieved 2nd in heat 1 with the fastest lap, another 2nd in heat 2 and 3rd in heat 3. This gave Albert position 2 to start the 34 Kart final line up. The flag went down on the final that was a fantastic race to watch with the leader frequently changing between Wilson, Carter and Patterson with Carter leading the last 3 of 4 laps. It was Wilson who took the win with Albert 24 thousands of a second behind! This now makes Albert 2nd in the Championship ready for his next competition. You can keep up to speed with Albert’s progress on his website or Facebook page!/albertcarter2003
Special thanks again from The Rotary Club of London to everyone that helped make this amazing karting experience happen for West Lea School, in our local London Community.
