A letter from Spanners Ready. Please come play with me?
Dear Judge 13 readers,
The thing I love about this website more than anything is the sense of community. The way people come back again and again to comment, fight and bond is what kept me a fan of TJ13. As a member of the crew it’s what drives me forward and makes me excited to plug in my microphone and spend a couple of hours talking to you every week.
I want to take that to the next level very soon. On March 28th I’m going down to Rye House Go-Karting in Hertfordshire for an hour smashing around their awesome track with a few of the guys from the Podcast and we want YOU to join us.
We are running a session on their Pro Kart, twin engine 160cc 4 stroke, Honda powered karts which reach speeds of up to 65 mph. These karts are bags of fun and are powerful enough for some real racing action. This is NOT your local indoor track where there’s no space or power to overtake and the lightest guy wins. This is a proper karting experience. 26 Karts on track at once is crazy!!
But more than that, this a chance to come and meet some like minded folk from an online community you love. Whether you come alone or bring some friends, you can be sure that everyone there will be an F1 fan and everyone will have something in common.
We are currently looking at an hour on track. 15 minutes qualifying and then 40 minutes racing (either one race or two shorter ones). That session would normally cost £86 pounds per racer but our friends at Rye House are offering this session to TJ13 for £69 per driver. That is more than you’ll pay at your local indoor track… but this is not your local indoor track.
We are initially looking to fill a grid of 26 while we gauge how many of you would be interested in coming (international racers welcome). If number increase we will adapt the session but I would like to get the ball rolling as soon as possible. Please register your interest in the comments or tweet me @ or John our PM @. As soon as we feel confident we can fill a grid of 26, we will be asking people to phone up Rye House and leave deposits and we will adjust the format to suit the numbers.
We’re not laying on anything formal for the event on this occasion but we will most likely be grabbing a pint around the corner afterwards for which you are most welcome to join us. It’s all about having fun, but it’s more fun if you win. Oh and there will be the inaugural TJ13 Go-Karting Trophy 😉
