The awning conundrum

We really should be trying to channel funds towards a new chassis but, after our not-so-trusty awning gave into the elements at Clay Pigeon, I’m having to re-assess the priorities. We’ve signed up for the winter series at Clay Pigeon IKR, we’re absolutely going to need an awning! I’ve seen plenty of awnings give up the ghost since we started karting so I know that I’m going to have to invest in a decent one. The range of options isn’t great since the awning will need to fit in the back of the Clio! I think I’ll be looking at the compact version of the heavy duty awnings that some of the companies sell. Surf & Turf, LPTent, Gala Tent and Gazeboshop are all on the short-list so, if you wonderful folk have any experiences (positive or otherwise) to share, I’d appreciate hearing them!

I wonder if there is a sponsorship opportunity to be had here… 😉

  1. There were a lot of great deals at KartMania last year so might be worth a visit. We bought ours there and it was massively reduced. Be careful going for a metal frame – even with plastic ‘end caps’ ours chews through the roof.

  2. Don’t forget to get some ratchet straps and good solid pegs to keep your investment on the ground during stormy weather.
    After all, you and your lad don’t need to be paragliding around the paddock.
