Scouts feel the need for speed!

AN all black box kart designed, built and steered by female members of the 1st Charmouth Scouts came second in the Downhill Section of the Dorchester and West Dorset District Box Kart Race. 

Annabel Mackenney volunteered to pilot ‘Stealth’ down the treacherous slope at Freshwater Holiday Park, using the experience she gained last year when she came third.

By managing to steer an almost straight course, and avoiding the tussocks and hummocks, she was able to coax the kart the second furthest down the slope before running out of steam.

‘Stripe’, the troop’s red and white second kart, did not fare quite as well, but all eight Scouts who entered the annual event had a great time and escaped unscathed from their downhill, cross country, sprint and tarmac races.
