Remember last year’s post-Christmas minimoto endurance race, where Team 44Teeth acted as mobile chicanes amongst a clusterfuck of broken bones and trips to A&E? Well, there’s another instalment planned this Chrimbo and we’re rerunning the fun on the 27th of December – with a twist.
The format is the same, although there’s a switch to an upgraded, more fanciful venue with pukka bikes and an actual Tarmac surface at Swindon Karting Arena. A 10-minute superpole session decides the grid for a 2-hour race, and the entry list is still being tidied but racing royalty such as Scott Redding, Danny Kent, Kyle Ryde and Luke Stapleford – all of whom grew up plying their trade on minimotos – have all been confirmed.
And the best bit? We’ve teamed up with our buddies at Swindon Karting Arena to offer one of you guys/gals a space in Team 44Teeth. You’ll need to demonstrate the speed of a GP racer, the flexibility of a contortionist and strong resolve to survive the banter. All you have to do is email us and explain why you should have the coveted place on the team of jizz. The best/funniest entrant that offers the biggest pile of cash will join us for an evening of motorised torture.
After near death and a hurty leg last year (to be fair he has got a permanent crater in his shin), we’re still trying to convince Baron that racing is a good idea. With money tight and many still feeling the pinch of financial ruin, funds to secure an air ambulance have yet to be secured, which hasn’t sweetened the deal for his lordship. 4.2bhp has never been so much fun.
