February 2014 sees a very special Karting event return in memory of a lost friend. In the Autumn of 2011, a motorsport-mad 37 year old man from Staffordshire lost an 18 month battle with a rare form of leukaemia. That man was Paul Lee-Davis.

Paul is remembered by all whom he met for being a fun-loving, larger than life character who was truly in his element when competing on track. Having rekindled his childhood passion for karting, Paul competed with the Club100 series between 2008 and 2010.

February 2nd 2014 will see the running of the 3rd Annual Paul Lee-Davis Memorial Kart Race held at Whilton Mill, Daventry. After successful running’s in 2012 & 2013, which raised over £6000 for various charities, the event returns with a new format but with the same aim of having fun while raising money for the chosen charity – Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

The event starts at 9:30am with a compulsory briefing and group photo with racing commencing at 10:30am. The format will comprise of 3x 7 Lap sprints plus a 15 Lap final. To promote fun and fair racing, any penalties/warnings incurred will be accompanied by small fines to raise further funds.

Take your place on the grid alongside some quick (and some not so quick) competition! Spaces are limited, so if you would like to take part and contribute to this great cause.

To enter, contact Dan Underhill (Event Organiser - Email: dan.underhill82@gmail.com - Tel: 07515941699) for ways to pay the £70 fee.

Entry is only accepted once an additional donation is made to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research http://www.justgiving.com/PLD2014



Planning for the event is going well. 50 of the 60 driver max is filled, my guess is the event will be full by the end of the year. So far we have raised nearly £1000 for this amazing charity.

We have been donated some amazing prizes and items for auction on the day.
The winner will receive a full day test and tuition with SWB motorsport in a kart of your choice. Worth well over £350
For auction we have received a number of items, 2 grandstand and parking tickets to the 2014 Moto GP at Silverstone.

I am currently to my employers Sahara Force India F1 about possible involvement. More to follow.

For all those interested in taking part or coming down on the day to watch the action please get in contact.

Thank you


Event now filled. People can still come down to visit on the day. :)
