Beat your Property Professionals on the race track?

Race wheel to wheel, sitting only inches (mm) off the ground at 60mph, four abreast into the first corner – this is the closest thing you will get to motor racing without a licence.

The joint RICS/SPA/PPA Charity Karting day is this year at Thruxton Kart Centre (just off the A303 west of Andover) a circuit which is perfect for this type of event.


As part of RICS’ 150-year anniversary in 2018, it is partnering with LandAid, the property industry charity, to deliver an inspirational programme to help end youth homelessness and deliver the biggest ever single fundraising initiative in LandAid’s history.

RICS is committed in the South East to raise £345,000 which will provide 23 bed spaces for young people at risk of homelessness. More details can be found in our South East Toolkit here at

Professionally organised competition with race marshals, timekeepers and the use of 20 Thruxton Thunderkarts. Teams (of four or five) compete in an Endurance Race, deciding on driver changes (three compulsory pit stops), fuel stops, driver order and overall race management. The winner being the team which has completed the most laps within the race duration.

Come and race against fellow professionals in the property and construction market, enjoying the sensation of speed and power at this fabulous networking event whilst at the same time helping to raise money for Pledge 150 LandAid in the South East.

Food and refreshments will be available during the afternoon.
