A brand new karting track opens in Maidenhead this weekend.
Absolutely Karting opens in Stafferton Way on Saturday and kicks off with a morning of charity go-kart racing.
The karting track will have 270cc GT5 karts that will compliment the demanding new track with its 50 metre straight.
The charity go-karting racing is £5 per person and all proceeds will go to SportsAble in Braywick Road, Maidenhead.
Email email@example.com by tomorrow to enter a team.
The centre is owned by Absolutely Leisure, a charitable subsidiary of Slough Community Leisure. It was granted planning permission in June to build the business on the site of an empty two-storey warehouse.
The plan was given the green light despite objections from residents in Stafferton Way.
An Advertiser poll on Facebook in June saw 98 people vote in favour of the centre with on 9 people against it.
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
