Brighton Digital Karting 2014

At the start of the year I had two social events I wanted to put together as an opportunity to get to know more people within the Brighton digital community.

Events like UX Brighton or AsyncJS (which now has a permanent home at 68 Middle Street) are great ways of expanding your skillset, sharing your work and learning new things. But I wanted to do something that was more about bringing together people to do something completely different to their day jobs.

Clearleft has in its ranks a number of petrolheads, and a group of us occasionally go racing or attend race meets both on 4 wheels and 2. For the team that was assembled for a project with Dennis Publishing to look at the future of [Evo Magazine](http://clearleft.com/made/evo-magazine) in digital form it was a match made in heaven.

With the [Digital Festival](http://www.brightondigitalfestival.co.uk/) coming up in just over a month, what better way to get together some of Brighton’s talent than putting them on a race track and let them battle out at Teamsport Go-Karting in Lancing?

And with that I give you Brighton Digital Karting on Thursday, 18th September 2014. A night of endurance racing open to anyone as part of the Brighton Digital Festival. You can get some more information and register your interest at https://ti.to/clearleft/bdkarting, I’ll be opening registration for teams during the week with 10 team slots available (4 drivers per team).

If you want to be like Honda, there’s no reason not to have a Factory Team and a Satellite Team entry, just remember you only get 1 engine per race and there’s only one choice of tyre compound – whatever is on the kart when you turn up.

I look forward to meeting some new people, and getting to know a few familiars better.

See you on the grid.
