Thanks to DPE - we now have even more prizes than we thought we had.
All season we've had 2 vouchers waiting to be given away to some lucky TAG 125 drivers who have competed in at least 5 rounds.
We now have an extra one to give away to a VCS entrant from any class that has completed 5 rounds (KA3, KA4, Cadet, TAG Restricted etc)
So 3 lucky winners who have done 5 rounds will get 50% off their next Arrow kart purchase!
I'm having a celebratory toast tonight.
I thought we should get 40k+ of prizes with all our great 2017 sponsors. (Up from around 30k in 2017)
Instead we went well past than - I calculate $57,050.75 in prizes and trophies for the 2017 season.
Cant wait to give them away next weekend :)
