A karting race has been organised to help raise money for the children’s ward at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.
The ‘bogie’ race takes place at Greenlands Farm Village from 2pm on June 22, and organisers are now looking for competitors or local companies to sign up to sponsor or take part in the event.
In addition, the group are looking for firms who could provide some of the necessary help for the event (such as cones, toilets, stalls, etc) or a small donation.
All companies will receive free advertising on the website at www.bogierace.co.uk.
A ‘bogie’ is an old fashioned term for a kart. It has no engine, and is powered purely by gravity.
There will be a track marked in the grass for the drivers to follow.
The race is expected to have 15 to 20 racers (with teammates), doing two timed runs on a steep grass hill, adjacent to Greenlands Farm Village.
The cost of entering is £50, with all the money, after the public liability insurance is paid, will go directly to the children’s ward at the RLI.
In addition to the bogie race, there will be fun activities for children, including a bouncy castle, face painting and fire engine.
