Lions go-kart event returns to Phuket

PHUKET: Although there seems some doubt that the proposed Formula 1 Grand Prix race will now take place in Thailand, the Lions Go-Karts Team Championships is definitely on and scheduled for Sunday, July 28 at the Phuket Racing Go-Karts track on Patak Road in Chalong, between 6pm and 8.30pm.

Organised by the Lions Club of Patong Beach, this is the third edition of the annual event that has attracted a large following in the local community. Some teams are regular entrants, such as those from Kata Rocks, St James Property, Phuket GOMS (Grumpy Old Mens Society) and Crissey Co. Group.

Each team consists of five drivers who will each race three times during the evening. Their times will be recorded by the track’s computer timing system using a transponder on each kart. The aggregate times of the four fastest drivers in each team will be added up, and the team with lowest total time will be declared Phuket’s Lions Go-Karts Team Champions of 2013.

Last year’s winners were a team from St James Property and Chief Executive K Esa Huovila says they are keen to return to their winning ways this year for another trophy and more gold medals.

There will also be awards presented to the driver recording the fastest lap time during the competition and also to the fastest lady driver. Team entry fees are B6,000, which includes a buffet supper for the drivers and their team manager.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to Patong Beach Lions Club’s Eyesight Improvement Programme at three local schools. Nearly six hundred children at Baan Bang Thong School in Kathu; Baan Bang Khu School in Koh Khaew and Baan Bang Rong School in Phak Lok will have their eyes tested by the Club’s partners in this project – K T Optics. Any child found to be in need of prescription glasses will receive them free of charge.

Once again the major sponsor for the event is Auto Express – the importers of luxury cars based on the Bypass Road. Other major supporters are Saraphan Plaeng, K T Optics, Julapan Stationery and Jula Place in Chalong and fellow Lions Clubs.

The organisers recently announced a new addition in the evening’s programme – Miss Go-Karts beauty competition – open to all women over 16 years of age. Entry fees are B250 and entrants can sign on at the racetrack during the evening.

Judges for this competition will be Lion Heidi Jauch (Chairwoman); K Saksri Kerdphol (General Manager of Auto Express) and Alasdair Forbes (Executive Editor of The Phuket News).

The Phuket News and Live 89.5 are media sponsors of this event.
