Leisure karting at Mansell Raceway receives a boost from the planners

Mansell Raceway at Dunkeswell has been approved to run 12 karts at any one time rather than the current eight. The report says: “In light of the detailed assessments that have been undertaken and the noise controls that are already in place, it is considered that the proposal would not have a significant detrimental impact in terms of noise and activity on the tranquillity of the AONB or the amenity of nearby residents and therefore the application should be approved.” This doesn’t affect the Dunkeswell Kart Club where grids are often significantly higher than 12, but only on one weekend a month.
