So while we were enjoying ourselves at the Superkart dinner last night some lowlife scum broke into our garage and stole both of our karts! Very suspicious this happened the night of the superkart dinner when we would be away from home. Extremely angry does not even begin to describe how I feel right now. Neither me or Luke will be racing next year unless these karts are found and as together we make up about 10% of the UK 250 National grid its important for the 250 National class that these karts are found so please share the hell out of this post. If anyone knows anything or sees or hears anything suspicious (like someone asking questions about superkarts or trying to sell parts and not having a clue what they are talking about) then please contact me (07977 223554) or Cambridgeshire police (crime number CC-09122018-0222).
