Many of our senior citizens are the heroes for our country, many alive today having lived through a world war. Alzeimers too often robs people and their loved ones of many years of normal life. We all hope to reach a ripe old age .. To reach that goal with our memories and abilities intact means that the person retains their independence .. Something most of us are lucky enough to take for granted at least in our younger years.  The Alzheimer's Society is dedicated to defeating dementia Alzheimers Research

How it all started ...Easykart 2011 8 round UK Championship...(final result 5th overall) Jim Rainbird - Conset Kart.
“in 2010 having been out of karting since 2005 it suddenly dawned on me that with 50 years old looming, if I was ever going to race again the time was now. A few phone calls took place in November 2010 to old contacts and I decided to do the ‘Easykart’ championship for 2011. The series benefits from having strict rules regards modifications and testing before races, which keeps the costs lower than some other National Karting Championships but being a National series, with Worldwide recognition it offers and excellent way to use my racing experience to promote our ‘Conset’ brand further “

For 2012 .. “changing to the light weight class means more youngsters, that will be very hard going, I hate to say it ... for a veteran like me, 2011 was hard enough with the championship top 4 all in their 20’s rather than 50’s”

2012 - Conset Kart will be on track again throughout the UK and again will be supporting ‘The Alzheimers Society’
Look out for no.168 in the 158kg Senior light weight catagory.
