This picture shows me in the lead! Would you like to take the lead of your particular market? Read on if you do.
Hello my name is Jack Barber and I am a kart racing driver based near Billingshurst in West Sussex. I currently race in the Junior Max category at circuits across the south of England. My main circuit is the Forest Edge kart track which is in close proximity to Andover. I am currently driving for the RS Racing kart team who coach me, look after my kart and run it for me.
Forest edge kart club near Andover in Hampshire. I also occasionally race at circuits such as Whilton Mill in Northamptonshire, Kimbolton in Cambridgeshire and Clay Pigeon raceway in Dorset. As you can see some of these are hundreds of miles away from my base in Sussex.
Camberley kart club Honda Cadet category vice Champion 2009 and Forest Edge Kart club Honda cadet 5 th place 2010 These results were achieved despite me only being in karting for 2 years and on a very limited budget!
In 2013, I have been competing in the Forest Edge Kart Club Junior Rotax championship. This was supported by partial campaigns at circuits such as Clay pigeon, kimbolton and Whilton mill. These meetings where selected as they all provided maximum experience for myself as many teams and drivers from across the country where competing in them. Please find my full 2013 calendar enclosed.
After spending 2012 and 2013 developing my skills and race craft at club level, I have set my sights high for If I can raise a budget of around £20,000, I will compete in the 2014 MSA Super One British Kart championship!!. This championship is televised on Motors TV, which has an audience of 8.7 million homes across the UK. In addition, events such as the MSA British Kart Grand Prix (Kartmasters) and the British Open Championship are also televised. Also, these events feature in recognised magazines such as the karting Magazine and Motorsport News. To find out more about the championship and the TV Coverage visit the super One website:
In the future, I am looking to further build on my current results and win more races and championships. Of course my main ambition is to get myself higher up the motorsport ladder, and obviously my main drive is towards Formula 1. However all of this isn't possible without financial support, because, as you probably know, motorsport is incredibly expensive. This is where you could help me and also help increase your business appeal......
If you invest in my racing you will gain a substantial amount of promotion for your company. This could include being mentioned in articles in newspapers about my progress or indeed your company logo on my kart and racewear. We could also use my website, facebook and twitter pages in order to help promote your company on the worldwide web. This would help you because your company would be exposed to a lot of people that could be interested in your business and your product as I race at some of the most popular tracks in the united kingdom. In addition I am looking to compete in meetings that are televised which will further increase your exposure country wide. A sponsorship deal with me could also allow you the use of me and my kart for promotional and customer events.
RS Racing is the kart team that currently manages me, and runs my kart at race meetings. They also act as a coach to help me improve my driving and my Race craft. They are one of the fastest developing business in the karting industry, as they have recently become the sole UK importer for wild kart and Lotus Racing Karts, as well as being one of the biggest Gillard Racing Kart dealers in Britain. They also not only compete in the British championship, but also in the European based BNL series. All of this adds up to a huge customer base and therefore, the potential for huge promotion for your enterprise.
As I have already mentioned, I am looking to expand my race program to include national championship rounds which would further increase your exposure via TV coverage, miles travelled e.t.c. In addition I am looking to upgrade our equipment as currently I am struggling to compete with better funded drivers on newer, faster equipment. This would allow me to achieve better results which would mean a better image for your business. Continue reading for some idea of the costs of competing in karting.
