THE winner of a competition at the recent Worcester Motor Festival to win a go kart has been announced.

Worcestershire firm Muddy Knees held a go kart race in New Street, Worcester, during the motor festival weekend.

The firm specialise in modern go karts, selling them as kits to make, and some of the already built karts were on display when they tackled the tough course.

During the event a competition was held to win a go kart, worth £89, which was won by Ann Turner.

"I now have two very excited grandsons (Henry and Leo," she sad.

"On behalf of my family thank you very much."

In addition to the competition Eva Philips won a voucher for a luxury ESPA facial by Infinity Beauty, Ian Ballard won a food and drink voucher for Côte Brasserie and Joyce Price won two bags of ground coffee by Coffee Dough.

Wulstan Nixon, from the firm, said: "We had a fantastic range of people dodge the showers to have a go on the track with all ages from two to 70 taking part.

"Both adults and children had great fun pushing and pulling each other around the course on our traditional wooden karts.

"All participants received a medal and flag on the podium and then had the chance to enter the competition to win one of our wooden go kart kits as well as other prizes from local businesses.

"We also ran a collection for the charity Motov8 which raised just under £30 to help them carry on their work providing activities and support to young people in the local area.

"Muddy Knees is a small business based in Worcester - if we can give a few kids today half the fun that we had making and racing wooden karts down local hills then we'll consider it a success."
