Commonwealth Bank Bushrangers all-rounder John Hastings will fly the flag for the sport today in the Battle of the Blues on the go-kart track.
The Test quick will race Carlton’s Bryce Gibbs and Melbourne Rebels’ Adam Freier in support of Blue September, the initiative for men’s cancer, with Ace Karts donating $1000 for every player that can drive faster than the average lap time (41 seconds).
Ace Karts have also agreed to donate $20 to Blue September for every customer who beats a 38 second time lap this year, with names and time trials being displayed on a leader board at the track.
Ace Karts Executive Manager Steve Milner said they were happy to help spread the message about men’s health with Blue September.
“We see a lot of kids come in here with their dads, but many wouldn’t know the statistics for prostate and testicular cancer,” Mr Milner said.
“We thought it we could provide a fun environment to spread this awareness.”
