2015 Pedal Kart dates (13th - 15th November) and additional info

The date for the event will be the weekend of the 13-15th November 2015. nb - we had thought to run on the following weekend however that clashes with the Oxfam Trailwalker hence bringing the event a week forward.
Timings - Entry forms available from Easter 2015 via our website and i will also send out an email. Target date for entry forms submissions will be June 2015 (if first time entrant please take a look at the 2014 event entry form (see earlier posts). It will be mostly unchanged. Our event brochure for 2014 is also avialable).
Karts - We can assist with karts. We have five available to buy / rent from the organisers (first come first served), and a willing company to build new karts to an ever improving design. You can also build your own!
2014 event update - I'm delighted to say the event received over HK$1.2m in charitable donations and entry fees. After off-setting costs of running the event (Round Table run the event on a voluntary basis, but we do incur hard set up costs) the net proceeds to Charity will be over HK$1m. The Association of Round Tables in HK have already allocated c25% of this and additional projects are under review, by Round Table and Ladies Circle. We had a great event video made in 2014. Please see link below.

2014 Pedal Kart Event - HAECO win, over HK$1m raised.

The 2014 Hong Kong 24 Hour Charity Pedal Kart Grand Prix was run in late November in lovely weather and once again was a huge success, enjoyed by participants, spectators and supporters. Soon charities across Hong Kong and the wider region will be benefitting from the in excess of HK$1m raised by the event.

Check out our 2014 promotional video (see link below) and see our abridged Awards Ceremony presentation which includes an interesting comparison between the event in the 1980's and today. For those with sharp eyes you will also see that Jacky Chan was a former participant in the event!
