For a third year Heppelthwaite the Red Van Plumbers are supporting the Gravity Grand Prix as headline sponsor. The downhill karting event will take place on Sunday 11th September 2022, and kicks off from midday.

The yearly fund raising event has taken place in the Village of Cookham Dean, Berkshire since 2007. The event has become very popular attracting over 2,000 spectators who come to experience the thrill and spectacle of the day. Subsequently, the Gravity Grand Prix has raised over £170,000 for our designated charity, the Thames Valley Air Ambulance and other local causes.
