We are excited to announce that my annual charity event, Karun’s Karting Carnival, is back for the 8th edition this year!

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who took part last year - we had a 100% turnout for the first time in our event's short history and for this I must sincerely thank everyone! We have now secured the date for the event this year: Sunday, the 6th of May!

Every year, folks from all across the UK participate in this karting competition to raise money for educating underprivileged children through our family run charity, The Vishnu Devananda Charitable Trust in India. We had a hugely successful event last time, with an oversubscribed entry list so with the chance of much better weather, we hope to have a good turn out once again.

Join us once again at Whilton Mill, where we will have the great mix of fans and non-paddock folks racing alongside people from within the world of motorsport in order to have fun, win some great prizes, and raise a bit of money for charity. Scroll down for more information about the event itself.


Like last year, you may enter as teams of three or four drivers: Simply email with the subject "Karun's Karting Carnival" to let us know your team name, members, and contact information, and we will confirm entries by April 15th. We would also love to have your friends and family come along as the cheering squad!
