Bambino Festival 2016

Rye House Kart Raceway would like to thank all who participated ┬áin it’s very first “Independent Karting Festival” for Bambino’s aged 5 – 7 years of age!

The event (10th December) saw a huge entry list of nearly 40 “little” racers on the grid, Karting Magazine (featuring the event live) quoted; “it has been the biggest race meeting for class witnessed in the UK this year & to our knowledge Rye House are the only kart circuit in the UK to dedicate a whole television broadcast to Bambino racing.”

As you would expect, the racing at Rye is always exciting, this event proved to be a classic. With the top drivers being split by mere thousandths of a second, our novice & newcomers having “grins” that said it all & a gaggle of spectators & supporters that were all treated to standards of driving way beyond the years of the children “behind the wheel”. Rye House really does bring out the best in junior racing!!

The Hamilton’s are well known for the close interest they take in Rye House’s Bambino & Junior events & once again graced us with their presence (in defiance of the poor weather conditions!). Anthony & Nic spent nearly an hour in the paddock meeting the children & speaking to Karting Magazine, furthermore Nic was kind enough to introduce us to his Junior sponsorship programme. Most of you will know the boys live locally & have pledged in the past to attend our events, our thanks go out to them once again!

The TV production will be broadcast (we understand) on Boxing Day, we will confirm nearer the time, all that remains is for us to thank all of you that attended the Festival & to wish you a Merry Christmas & a happy New Year – BHOOOOOOM!!!
