Karting News. STRS prepare for Thruxton final.
On Tuesday 22nd March, Sir Thomas Rich's A karting team prepared for their forthcoming South West and Wales Final at Thruxton karting centre. The boys soon got to grips with the challenging 900m outdoor track driving the 390cc 55mph Thunderkarts. The lap record on this track is around 49 seconds and the boys were soon within 2 seconds of this time, Toby Hogg achieving a best 50.3 second lap. The practice session was made a bit more exiting with some good wheel to wheel racing against the Army, represented by 6th Battalion REME who are hoping to establish a new karting team.
