Fast Track Karting owners Dave Hik (left) and Ryan Fischer are opening up their business for a couple of hours of free racing on Dec. 16. A cash or non-perishable food donation will earn a free race for their Speed for Need event with donations going to the Langley Christmas Bureau and Sources Food Bank.

Go karting for a good cause

Feel the need for speed?

Then a Langley business wants to see you out at the race track next week.

Fast Track Karting is offering a free go kart race to anyone willing to make either a cash donation or the donation of a non-perishable food item.

“In a nutshell, it is a free race, but it is all by donation,” said Jose Perez, a sales rep for Fast Track Karting.

“You come with a donation and you get a chance to go for a spin and it all goes to a good cause.

“We came up with this idea, Speed for Need.”

The event runs on Wednesday, Dec. 16 from 5 to 7 p.m. with one donation netting one free ride.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Langley Christmas Bureau and the Sources Food Bank.

“After seeing all the people lined up at the food bank, hopefully this is a success. That would be fantastic,” Perez said.

“If we get a lot of people, we get a lot of donations.”

Up to a dozen karts can go on the adult track — riders must be at least 56 inches tall — while the junior track — minimum 48 inches tall — allows four karts per race.

Both tracks are indoor.

Fast Track Karting is located at 5760 Production Way.
