Armed forces link with electric go-kart track

Race2Recovery, the team of wounded service personnel attempting the gruelling Dakar Rally, links up with TeamSport electric go-kart venue

Race2Recovery, the team of wounded service personnel attempting the gruelling Dakar Rally, posed a ‘fastest lap’ challenge to guests at a newly opened eco karting circuit. The event took place at the UK’s first carbon neutral motorsport venue, the TeamSport Tower Bridge circuit, and marked the start of a fundraising partnership between Race2Recovery and TeamSport. The Race2Recovery team challenged guests in specially adapted versions of TeamSport’s blisteringly fast, emission free electric eco-karts around the enormous two-storey circuit, while raising money for service charities such as Help for Heroes and the Royal British Legion. TeamSport is pledging a percentage from every event booked at Tower Bridge over the next 12 months, and will be running a series of fundraising events through 2012. Visitors are encouraged to donate too. A ‘two-for-one’ discount, eligible for serving service personnel across all its tracks, has been extended to include registered veterans - which means anyone who has already been medically discharged can also take advantage. The same adapted karts used by the Race2Recovery team are available to all visitors.
