Dutch Uncles invite fans go karting

It's to celebrate the release of latest album 'Big Balloon'.
Dutch Uncles have planned a day of go karting to celebrate the release of their new album, ‘Big Balloon’, due this Friday (17th February).

The band have partnered with TeamSport, a new go karting facility housed underneath Manchester Arena, and are challenging fans to race them on the 550 metre multi-level circuit. Prizes include signed vinyl albums, Dutch Uncles t-shirts, and tickets to their March shows.

“None of us have been go karting since a post-tour day out to Blackpool Pleasure Beach about seven or eight years ago,” says Robin Richards. “We haven’t even got our own copies of the new album yet, so we’ll be giving it our all to win those coveted prizes.”

The race sessions will start at 2pm on Sunday 19th February. Applicants must register their interest in advance by emailing dutchunclesracing@gmail.com.
