KART4LIFE - ENDURANCE

KART4LIFE - BLUE LIGHT RACE

KART4LIFE - 12hrs of YORKSHIRE

KART4LIFE - PETIT LE MANS

 Our original charity karting event - A whopping 3hr 30min endurance relay race.

It’s all about strategy, pit stops and working together, with the team who completes the most laps taking the chequered flag!

Exclusive to emergency service staff, this event is identical to our classic endurance race but with teams split between:

Police - Ambulance - Fire - Coastguard- Army - Prison 

 

All for emergency service staff wellbeing and charities. 

This ultimate challenge is won by the kart that covers the greatest distance in a whopping 12 hours.

Racing teams must balance the demands of speed with endurance karting ability to run for 12 hours without stopping!

Held at the awesome TeamSport Leeds, Yorkshire's longest indoor kart track!

In true Le Mans spirit, this event is won by the kart that covers the greatest distance in a gruelling 10 hours.

Racing for 10 hours without stopping is one hell of a challenge!

This event rotates between different tracks each year.

About Us

WHO ARE WE

The YAS Football & KART4LIFE Charity Events group is a staff wellbeing initiative founded in October 2017 by Oliver Dean, a Service Development Officer from the Integrated Urgent Care department of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

The aim is simple, to help raise staff morale and bring around a bit of healthy competition in the workplace during a period of such demand for the NHS. We are a large organization covering all corners of the Yorkshire and Humber region and with the shared love of Football and Motorsport we are bringing different parts of the service together.

Through these events we try to raise funds for worthwhile local causes and great charities across the region. To date we have been fortunate enough to have raised a total of:

£49,816.89

This has been raised from a combination of charity football matches and tournaments as well as our hugely successful KART4LIFE indoor karting events (the purpose of this website).

Despite loosing over a year of fundraising due to the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic we are determined to make up for lost time

#KART4LIFE EVENTS

Our charity karting events are named #Kart4Life simply due to the lifesaving charities we raise funds for, including the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charity. 

 

The fantastic work that they do funding community defibrillators and facilitating CPR training across Yorkshire is quite literally helping to save lives across the region by enabling everyone to respond in a medical emergency.

By taking part in our events you will be literally karting to raise money which will go towards saving lives, hence the name Kart4Life!

580 metres of jaw-dropping straights, hair-raising bridges, and awesome tunnels, promises a circuit that takes indoor karting to the next level.

TeamSport Leeds (our home track) has the longest indoor karting track in Yorkshire, this tarmac utopia is primed and ready to crown the next KART4LIFE champion!

 

Profits from all KART4LIFE events go to fantastic local lifesaving charities including the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charity
