These kart racers must be tough. It is well into November and there is still one meeting left to go. I hope that they have good tyres for icy conditions...Elio is currently lying fifth in the championship but working very hard for fourth. With just one last go round for the season, he is looking to amass as many points over the weekend as he can. Join us in wishing him all the luck and success that he needs to get that next place up the ladder.
Getting anywhere in motorsport is tough, it takes a lot of hard work, determination and not least of all, money. If there are any potential sponsors out there who could use the publicity from a talented young racer, there is plenty of bodywork on these TKM karts that can show off your message nicely.Likewise, if you want to attract visitors to your corporate events, then hold their attention while they are there, our racing simulator can present a powerful draw, with skilfully organised competition throughout that keeps people coming back to your message. Elio swears by the simulator as a means of sharpening up and keeping in top form for racing, as do many of the world's leading drivers who find this the most realistic way of driving around the greatest circuits without even being there.

As a part of this year's Gas Safety week, we have been invited to help out at the Gas Safe stand at Enfield Town & Country show. At last year's festival, Gas Safe engineers donned superhero costumes to underline the importance of keeping gas appliances safe. Engineers have worryingly found a number of faulty appliances in the course of their work, making it crucial to raise awareness about boiler safety. We are looking forwards to soaking up the carnival atmosphere, with fun events happening throughout the day. These include falconry, dog agility and classic cars to name but a few!
We will also be using the simulator to raise money for a worthy cause. All money raised by the simulator will be donated to In Sue's Name, a charity which raises funds for clinical research into brain cancer. We hope to see plenty of people at this year's event! The festival is from the 12th-13th of September, with tickets available to be purchased now from the website or at the gate.
We at Elite Virtual Racing had a great day out recently, as our simulator had been hired for a wedding at Syon Park! The weather was beautiful all day, with not a cloud in the sky. We like to think our simulator looked beautiful too, decked out with ribbons and a bow in the style of a classic wedding car. Syon Park provided a stunning backdrop to this special occasion. If you know any committed racing enthusiasts whose wedding would be incomplete without a racing experience, we are here to help! Our simulator can be booked to add extra excitement to any wedding, offering guests the chance to race against each other for first place on the leader board.

At the Royston Open Secrets event this year, up-and-coming kart racer Elio had the opportunity to try out one of our simulators. As we mentioned in the previous blog, the event was a great success as a whole, allowing visitors to take part in friendly competition. Elio was one of said vistors, and for him the event was perfectly timed, coming directly before the June Race meeting at his karting club.
Using our simulator helped him to build confidence before this event, as well as giving him a taste of handling a full sized single seater car. Having never used a simulator before this event, the speed with which he adapted to the simulator was very impressive. Elio commented that 'it was fantastic knowing how quick I was'. The scoreboard reflects this - he posted the fastest time of the day! The experience of using the simulator had obvious benefits: currently, Elio is 5th overall in the Hunts Kart Racing Club Championship. His karting career is looking extremely positive, with high hopes for bringing a trophy home in the Maxxis TKM Festival this August.
