A go-kart circuit that suddenly closed a year ago leaving many people angry because they lost money on bookings, is to re-open soon.

The Super Karts circuit in Pixmore Avenue, Letchworth GC closed in May but will open its doors again on May 10 under the banner of Teamworks Karting after it has undergone an eight-week refurbishment costing �250,000.

Teamworks Karting says it will also mean a dozen jobs to start with and a massive financial injection for local businesses.

And to mark the unveiling of the circuit there will be a bonus for those who lost money on deposits for parties and bookings when Super Karts closed without warning.

From May 10 until June 10 those who can prove they lost cash when they paid for an event that never happened will be able to race for free.

"Teamworks Karting is keen to ensure that everyone who wanted to race, and were left out of pocket when the venue closed without notice, have the opportunity to experience our particular style of karting," said Michael Bryant, managing director of Teamworks Karting.

"We will simply require from customers sufficient evidence that an event was paid for and did not run. Just call us so we can put a smile back on the faces of those people who missed out."

Mr Bryant added: "Twelve staff will be initially recruited and as the circuit's success grows, our recruitment will need to grow as well.

"Added to this is the massive injection of business we will be creating for suppliers as we will source locally. From contractors used during the refurbishment to caterers, trophy suppliers and taxi firms, this venture will add hundreds of thousands of pounds to the local economy."
