To everyone out there who’s looking towards the off-season with dismay – and thinking it’s an awful long time until next year’s British Grand Prix, or even the A1GP race at Brands Hatch.

How do you fancy catching a bit of hot open-wheel action in Hertfordshire this November? Possibly even with the prospect seeing the current GP2 champion Timo Glock in action?

And you’ll be supporting a good cause while you do it. The Race Against Cancer is a karting fundraising event for Cancer Research UK that will feature GP2 drivers Javier Villa of Racing Engineering and Alexandre Premat of ART Grand Prix.

The organisers are also hopeful that iSport International’s Timo Glock, who confirmed his 2007 season crown at Valencia last month, will be able to attend, pending, as they say most intriguingly on the GP2 official site, “potential F1 commitments”.

And the GP2 drivers won’t be the only famous faces from motorsport to take part. Stars from the motorbike world and from “varying disciplines” in car racing are promised. There’s a celebrity race and a feature race plus rallying and supercar demonstrations.

The event will take place at the Rye House kart circuit near Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire. Tickets are £25 per person. For more information visit Wikipedia: The Race Against Cancer.
