Spadeadam Soapbox Go-Karting

By Graham Petry

I would firstly like to thank all the marshals and competitors for a brilliant day out packed with fun, speed and excitement. For Martyn, Shaun and myself this was a thrilling experience with some very memorable moments.


This year I was confident I would finish above Martyn for the first time, which didn’t quite go according to plan and ended up with me being on 2 wheels and in a ditch obviously following in my Uncle’s footsteps and in the end finishing slowest! However, this did not fault the fantastic day I had. Well done to Martyn who in the end was the winner and everybody else who I’m sure had just as enjoyable day as I did. This was also Shaun’s first go on a proper Go-kart and in the end did very well to not only beat me but come a fantastic 3rd position.


I would like to thank everyone who helped make this outstanding event take place. I have had some very fun and exciting days out with the motor club but this has surely got to be one of the best!
