DIT Karting Club’s “Race to Raise”, held on the 23rd of October, proved to be a great success in raising money for Barretstown. The charity’s aim is to help rebuild children’s lives who are recovering from serious illnesses, namely cancer and serious blood diseases.
DIT have chosen Barretstown as their RAG Charity of the Year and DIT Karting, as a club within the college, felt that it was important to contribute towards this great cause. The club decided to hold a fancy-dress race night, and what better time of year to dress up than Halloween?
The night was a great success, with great enthusiasm shown from the members who came along. With the help of DITSU Ents, a social night for the club was arranged for afterwards in Dandelion with free entry provided for all who attended, courtesy of DITSU VP for events, Will Meara.
DIT Karting has expressed its thanks to all who contributed on the night, with a special thanks to Kylemore Karting for hosting the event.
The first round of the SSI Karting Championship Intervarsities is taking place today in Nutts Corner, Belfast, with a day of intense racing planned!
