Dadson Gentlemans Challenge

This is the 5th year of the Dadson Challenge, the series was put together by a group of karters from Kent Kart Racing Club for "the more mature driver, who had to get up for work the next day with no injury’s".

This year sees a record 30 registrations, almost double the drivers than 2005. Dadson founder Dannie Pennell says “What makes it attractive is the friendship between the drivers, we visit some of the best tracks in Britain and the racing is always close and very competitive”.

The series this year compises the following events:

  • 12th March - Lydd
  • 2nd April - PF International
  • 7th May - Forest Edge
  • 4th June - Rye House
  • 9th July - Lydd
  • 30th July - Dunkeswell
  • 13th August - Clay Pigeon
  • <17th September - Buckmore Park
  • 22nd October - Three Sisters
  • 12th November - Lydd

Series reigning champion John Beckenham is the man to beat – but previous race winners such as Melvyn Francis, Tony Cowlam, Winston Bent, Dave Wooder and Bryn Green will all be trying to reclaim the title.
