The Badgers are a group of young people who were brought together by Wakefield Council, Pontefract Neighbourhood Policing Team and MALTRA (Monkhill & Ladybalk Tenant’s & Residents Association). The team meet weekly at Raceway Karting in Pontefract.
The team have been meeting since May 2014 and participated in a number of karting championships in 2015.
The team are looking forward to participating in the 2016 British Schools Karting Championship – the first race being on Thursday 4 February. These race meetings include school aged drivers from teams around the country
If you or anyone you know could help the team by providing sponsorship we would love to hear from you. Sponsorship is something that the team need so that they can keep using the Raceway Karting track for practice and to help them buy much needed safety equipment such as their own helmets, race suits etc. Please contact the Raceway Karting track at Tavern Works, Skinner Lane, Pontefract, WF8 1HG or phone 01977 600030.
