Posted on: July 19th, 2012

HAVE YOU GOT what it takes to lead a team of pasty motoring writers to racing victory? We sure hope so, because we need all the help we can get!


Your favourite motoring writers and expert finaglers have charmed their way into the Singapore Corporate Karting Challenge (SCKC) 2012. The good news is, we’re also on the lookout for one lucky reader to join the team!

That’s right, here’s your chance to take part in a paid-for drive in the iFast SCKC 2012, a four-hour endurance race at the Kartright circuit at Upper Jurong Road.

We’re looking for a team member who’s fast and with better racecraft than Lewis Hamilton, but preferably less good-looking and shorter than TopGear’s writers.



The drive is sponsored by lubricants specialists Motul, and apart from taking part in the year’s premiere corporate karting event, if you join the team you’ll receive your own race suit and the chance to have your racing heroics chronicled by us.


The winning driver will join Team Motul-CarBuyer’s racing efforts from the get-go, beginning with the event’s compulsory orientation sessions, right through to qualifying and the finals (if we get there).

Here’s how to enter:

1) Just tell us in 50 words or less, why you deserve a spot in Team Motul-CarBuyer. You can send your entry to

Entries will be judged on a number of criteria such as bravado, eloquence, evidence of potential race craft to make up for pure speed, for example.

2) The closing date for entries is August 10, 2012

3) The judges’ decision is final

4) The 10 best entries will be shortlisted for a Top 10 Shootout at Kartright Speedway, where we’ll conduct a time trial to find the fastest driver, who will go on to join the team.

5) By entering the contest, you agree to be bound by the Rules and Regulations below
