Stoxkarts were outside the stadium on display, I loved the look of them and after test driving one of them knew it was something I had to be involved in racing with!Who is your favourite sporting hero?Valentino RossiWhat is your favourite thing to eat?NandosWhat do you enjoy doing outside of racing? If honest I dont have alot of spare time, we also race a Polaris Buggy in the British SXS series, so there is alot of time spent each week in the garage. But any free time I do have I enjoy going to the Cinema, Go-karting, watching Speedway.

Based around a 390cc Honda 4 stroke engine with a centrifugal clutch, Stoxkarts will reach speeds in excess of 50mph. All Karts run on transponders for lap positions and the Race Director has one way radio comunication with all drivers via an in Kart Raceciever. At first glance a Stoxkart may seem small – they are after all the smallest of all the ‘contact’ formulas – but what they lack in size they more than make up for in every other department.

Mark began racing Stoxkart’s in 2016 and it was an instant ‘hit’!  The formula and the people in it were so friendly from the very first meeting.  Everyone chips in to ensure that you get out for a race, its a complete team spirit in the pits, but everyman for himself on the track.
