January 2012 British Schools Karting Championship (BSKC) - (by invitation only)

                                                                                                                                      

January 2012

 

Dear Parent/Carer

 

The British Schools Karting Championship (BSKC) involves teams of children aged 13-18 years from schools all over the country competing head-to-head in a national karting championship specially designed for school students.

 

The championship is to take place at selected arrive-and-drive karting circuits across the country on Thursday 26th January 2012.

 

We will be leaving the Academy for this event by minibus at 2.30pm and should arrive back approximately 8.00pm.Students can be dropped off at home or collected from the Academy.

 

Your child has expressed an interest in competing in the championship and so we are writing to you in order to ensure that both you and your child are fully aware of the risks associated with such an activity.

 

Motorsport can be dangerous. Accidents cannot be ruled out due to the unpredictable nature of racing. However the arrive-and-drive karting industry is very mature providing entertainment to hundreds of thousands of customers per year. Safety is of paramount importance to all circuits hosting the British Schools Karting Championship.

 

The risk assessment report can be viewed by visiting the BSKC website www.bskc.co.uk

As you will see from their report, all risks have been accounted for and limited wherever possible so as to ensure both the competitors and spectators personal safety during the event.

 

Once you are satisfied that you and your child fully understand the risks involved in this activity, please complete the slip at the bottom of this page and return to me no later than Monday 23rd January 2012.

 

I thank you for taking the time to read through this letter and I greatly look forward to seeing your child represent Corby Business Academy in the BSKC. I wish them and the rest of the team every success!

 

Yours faithfully

 

D Mitchell
