Immediately after the Ryder Cup ended, we asked “Ian Poulter for player captain in 2010?”
33% said “Bring it on” (this translates into a vote for Ian in Poulterspeak). Unfortunately for fans of the flamboyantly trousered one, 67% either said “Good lord…NO!” or “Can we have Sandy Lyle instead”.
So, Mr PGA, that’ll be “Bring it on Laddie!”

We’ve decided not to wait, and have slashed an amazing off £4.24 off the price of a GoKart. Even though the Chancellor’s cunning plan doesn’t officially come into effect until the 1st of December, we thought what the heck, why wait, let’s get this VAT party started!
So with immediate effect, the price of all GoKarts will be reduced to reflect the new VAT rate (don’t worry, we’ll square the early start with Alistair).

If the prices in our webshop haven’t changed when you read this, it’s just because our web gurus haven’t worked their magic yet. It’s no problem, if you order at the old prices, we’ll refund the difference.
We’ve come over all festive again. Since the beginning of November anybody ordering a GoKart has been pleasantly surprised with a free transit bag. Our sturdy, practical carry bag is the perfect way of preserving your pristine car boot. What’s more it looks rather good. A sort of a golfing fashion statement without the designer price tag. Well without any price tag at all until the end of the year!
When you order, there’s no need to mention (or pay for) the bag. It’ll be nestling in the corner of the box when you unpack your GoKart.

Lots of customers ask us what happens if the GoKart is bought as a prezzie? When does the warranty start? What if it’s the wrong colour? Or, heaven forbid, can it be returned if hubby doesn’t want it. What about the 28 day money assurance? How’s that going to work? So we thought a few answers might be useful… (more…)Add a comment 7 Comments Tweet
A note of caution if you’re intending to order a GoKart for a surprise Christmas prezzie…
We really put our foot in it recently. We emailed the intended recipient, giving the game away over what was going into their Christmas stocking. Completely our fault, as we didn’t notice the email address was different to the one we had from a previous order from the same person.
We take as much care as possible, but please help us avoid making mistakes by either entering in the special instructions that it’s a present (if ordering online), or tipping us off on the ‘phone if you prefer to order the old fashioned way.
Our name is mud at the moment in Mrs X’s house, and we feel rotten about it. We’re trying to think of an appropriate way to make it up to them. In any case, we really don’t want to put any more customers (or ourselves) through this again, so do please let us know if your order is a present.Add a comment Tweet
With these current slip-slidy conditions a lot of customers have been asking about the textured wheels we’ve been planning. We were hoping that they would have been ready by now but the likelihood is that we’re looking at another four soggy weeks. But, to whet your appetite (sorry) here’s a pic to prove that we’re not fibbing.

They’re performing extremely well in testing (important), seem to be rather kind to the golf course (very important) and look rather dashing (less important but still very important). More news when they’re ready to send out.
The ones in the pic are black, which is a special order for James Bond (”Parsh me my wedge Mish Moneypenny”) (yes ok that is a fib, but Daniel Craig is a GoKarteer). The production version for us normal mortals will be a light grey same as the current wheel.Add a comment 23 Comments Tweet
