How to enter Pedal 2016 and what you need to know.....

Please email hkpedalkart@gmail.com for attachments until a time when we can host these on this site.

Kart options: 

a) Build your own (we have some drawings, and then there are various studies on the web including a good one from a student at Poly U. We can also put you in contact with a couple of the teams to see what they would share.

b) Buy one from HFM (Wolfgang). Wolfgang's onto his second version which costs around HK$50-60k. One of the first version 'One Design' models managed to come 7th this year up from 13th last year (Team BASF). Details are in the 2015 event brochure and this includes some pitcures of his 2014 version and further commentary on this. His second version is seeking to have substantial space for branding, so good for your own branding and that of your sponsors etc c) rent one of Wolfgang's first versions from Round Table.

Entry Forms / Entry requirements - 2015 Entry form acts as a guide to procedures. We try to release in April and then try to get the entry forms in by June (before myself, half of Hong Kong and especially the schools disappear for the summer)! Race generally works well in November and we make a decision on dates typically as soon as we know when Oxfam Trailwalker takes place so as to avoid a clash. Rules and Regs attached.

Charitable Donations - the entry fees broadly cover race set up costs. We otherwise ask teams to raise money from their own staff, suppliers and corporate connections which is for the benefit of The Association of Round Tables in Hong Kong Charitable Foundation (ART HK CF). Throughout the year this money is then allocated by ART HK CF to Charities of our selection. Information on a number of the Charities we support is included in the event brochure as well as on our Facebook page. We are a Registered Charity so can supply audited accounts etc. Increasingly corporate sponsors of the teams ask for these as part of their own internal audit prior to granting a donation. No min donation amount but we'd like to start getting this upwards of HK$30k per kart. Our highest fund raiser typically does in excess of HK$300,000! We have 2015 donation forms that we can show you.
