Drivers from Team BRIT and linked charity, KartForce have celebrated with a p1,2,3 at a recent karting fundraiser.
On Tuesday 6th August, a karting invitational was held at Daytona Sandown Park, with Team BRIT sponsors and supporters coming together to take part in a special team endurance race.
18 teams from major corporates including Brit Insurance, Hiscox and Fujitsu took part in a three-hour race to raise funds for KartForce.
Amongst the competitors were Team BRIT drivers Martyn Compton, Warren McKinlay and Rich Newton who joined forces on the track, a team of KartForce karting experts and two newly formed ‘Racing With Autism’ teams, consisting of young drivers with autism, captained by Team BRIT drivers, Bobby Trundley and Matty Street.
The lead changed throughout the three-hour race and ended with KartForce taking the P1 spot, followed by Racing with Autism -2, captained by Bobby, in P3 and Team BRIT drivers in P3.
Team BRIT founder and CEO Dave Player said, “What a fantastic day we had at Sandown Park. I would like to say a huge thank you to Daytona for their generosity in hosting us, and for everyone that came together for a fantastic day of karting whilst supporting our team.
“It was really special to see the first race for our ‘Racing with Autism’ teams. These young drivers are quite exceptional and can really show the rest of the motorsport world how amazing they are on track.
“We look forward to working with them again and to welcoming back even more supporters for another event soon.”
