A message from the Chairman to all drivers and support staff that raced with Hoddesdon Kart Club on Sunday 5 August 2012
Since the start of the year, the club committee have worked hard alongside the circuit owner to ensure that HKC continues to be a viable club that provides safe and exciting racing for members and visitors.

All of the club officials sincerely regret that the most recent meeting had to be abandoned and a full enquiry into the events that led to this decision is currently underway.

As ever there is a lot of speculation amongst the drivers which has led to various rumours being spread and certain individuals being blamed. I am not yet in a position to fully explain the circumstances on the day, but I feel that you should be aware of the outline facts as they are known to me.

A contract is in place with a company to provide suitably trained medical staff and equipment for all HKC race meetings. At some stage during the race day, officials became aware that although the medical staff on site were trained they may not have held the appropriate certificates. HKC club officials immediately contacted the company who were unable to provide any replacement staff.

If race officials have any cause for concern regarding driver safety they have no option but to abandon a meeting and this is what happened.

Once the various enquiries have been completed I will ensure that all club members are informed of the outcomes. At this time the committee are working hard to try and ensure that this situation does not happen again.

I must stress that the HKC committee has acted in good faith but has been let down. Inevitably it is the drivers who have suffered and the committee are keen to offer them some form of goodwill gesture. As you are aware, the club started this year with a zero bank balance and although some money has been gradually saved there is not sufficient to offer a full refund immediately. After discussion with the club treasurer, circuit owner and other committee members it has been agreed that drivers who signed on for the August round will be able to race in the next two club rounds at half of the normal fee. This is a saving equal to the cost of the August round.

Whilst recent events are disappointing, I hope this gesture from the club will encourage you to continue racing with Hoddesdon Kart Club in the future.

S Sanders
Chairman
Hoddesdon Kart Club

HKC Announcement
As we approach the 2012 championship, the new club (Hoddesdon Kart Club 2012) would like to inform all drivers of its current status.

We are currently finalising the line up of our new committee which we feel will improve & benefit the smooth running of our club. Existing committee members, i.e. Graham Britten (Comp Sec) and Sue Game (Club Sec) will still remain on the new committee.

We are extremely committed to improving the club as a whole and feel that we are in a much stronger position now than in the past due to the close relationship between the new committee and the circuit at Rye House, together, we will improve your racing experience and, therefore, welcome any suggestions that you may have.

We will soon be announcing on our website the new committee members and the roles that they will play in the running of the new club. We will also be posting the dates for this years racing though there will be no change to the customary first Sunday of each month.

We are fully aware that there will be rumours circulating, as is often the case in karting but we would like to assure you that the drivers will be the first to know, so, please keep an eye on the website.

We ask that you now complete your membership and race entry form and return them to the Competition Secretary so that we can arrange that membership cards are sent to you before the first race meeting.
