Date Posted:17/08/2015

Iain Stewart Formula FastIain Stewart, MP for Milton Keynes South, was invited along to experience the thrill of racing at Formula Fast Indoor Karting, which is one of the growing local businesses in his constituency.  

Mr Stewart was given a full karting brief before he took to the track for a race in the karts which have 200CC engine and a top speed of 50mph.  Getting to grips with the track quickly, Mr Stewart’s fastest lap was 38.676.  

Mr Stewart also experienced the new dual drive kart, giving him the opportunity to drive side-by-side with Co-Owner Phil Stanley who offered top tips for getting the best racing lines around the 500m track which features 12 technical corners, designed with the help of Formula One professionals.

In addition to tuition, the dual drive kart is primarily used for Formula Fast’s Access Karting Scheme, which is aimed at giving people with limited mobility, learning difficulties, and other special requirements the chance to experience the thrill of karting in a safe and controlled environment.

Mr Stewart commented:  “I’ve had a great day racing at Formula Fast; it’s a really good venue that has a lot to offer for a real mix of people.  I would encourage everyone to visit and have a drive. Phil and Ollie are doing a great job and I wish them the best of luck over the coming years.”

Phil Stanley added:  “We’re really pleased Mr Stewart was able to join us here at Formula Fast to experience indoor karting.  He did a really good job of handling both the regular kart and the dual drive kart.  Hopefully we’ll see him again soon and he can put what he’s learned during this visit into practice!”
