Kempt Grand Prix for Clients, Press & Allies

The inaugural Kempt Grand Prix was such a tire-squealing success that it has become an ongoing series with more events scheduled for this summer. We're offering you the chance to be our guest on a car-focused day of high-speed fun, relaxed networking and the added spice of a little competition.

The spacious North Weald Airfield is the location for our all-day event. You can either use one of the supplied cars (such as a Lotus Elise) or bring your own. It's a perfect place to test the limits of your skill - as the track is laid out on an airfield there's nothing to hit but plastic cones!
With assistance from three experienced instructors, you'll begin the day learning from the pro's as you get to grips with the two circuits set up especially for the event. Once you've honed your driving style you'll then take part in the grand finale, the Fastest Lap Challenge.

There are three criteria for selection:
  1. We like you.
  2. You are going to spend money with us.
  3. You already spend money with us.
If you tick all three boxes, we'll even make sure the brakes work and buy you a sandwich! So pass us your details and we'll get back to you very soon.

Further Information
The event is run by ex-Benetton F1 pilot Andy Walsh and the rest of the driving gurus at Car Limits. These chaps are experts in their (air)field and have improved drivers of all skill levels, including BBC F1 anchor Jake Humphries.

Where is it?
The North Weald Airfield is conveniently located just off the M11. There is no post code for the venue but directions are very simple if you are coming from the M11 - come off at Junction 7 and then follow the signs for North Weald Airfield.

Not Coming by car?
The nearest train station is Harlow Town just 30 mins from London Liverpool Street. The Nearest tube station is Epping on the end of the Central line. Both stations are 15-20 min drive from the airfield, if you're on the attendee list and intend to come by one or other please do let us know and we'll try to arrange for someone to pick you up or put you in a cab.

The Cars
If your wheels are just that little bit flash then we'd actively encourage you to bring them along. Several of us will so you'll be in good company and North Weald is the perfect place to explore the limits of the car safely and responsibly.

If you're not bringing your own car (or even if you do and fancy a bit of variation) then you'll get to zoom around the course in a Lotus Elise (just about the best damn car to fling round a track) or a slightly more forgiving Porsche Boxster.

The Prize

Setting the fastest time in the end-of-day shoot-out will gain the winner a Magnum of champagne. It's your choice whether you use it to soak your fellow competitors or take it home for a champion's celebration.
