Wakefield Council, along with local organisations including the Neighbourhood Policing Team, are offering young people aged 13 – 16 the chance to take part in free karting.

Raceway Karting Track at Skinner Lane in Pontefract is hosting the free session for teenagers from the Castleford, Airedale, Knottingley, Ferrybridge and Pontefract areas on Sunday April 27.

On the day those who turn up will be split into teams to compete against each other in a series of challenges to test their mechanical skills, other activities will include free karting and motor sport themed quizzes. There will also be the opportunity to meet the current UK Easy Kart Champion, Ayrton Hirst and the Raceway Karting's own Stig.

The café will be open to serve refreshments and parents are invited to come along with their children.
