Now apart from the Karts being twin engined and going pretty quickly, the course is fairly challenging as well. So a few laps is fun, but over 100 is damn hard work!

Our normal ‘Stig’ Paul Hutchings from Languageflow was moving house this year so couldn’t make it, but his seat was more than filled by our very own James Bache who we have crowned ‘New Stig’ as he set our lap record at 49.39 seconds, only about 1 second off the leaders, who had as couple of professional driver in their team….

Andrew, our head designer wasn’t far behind posting low 50’s, but did manage one of the most spectacular ‘loss of talent’ offs in the entire race making his way onto the grass and performing a number of stylish pirouettes!  Our MD Roger managed a 50.39! Not bad for an old boy. Simon and Paul pulled low 50’s and Andrea and Clare made sure everyone was fed and watered throughout the race.

Overall we came 11th out of 14th, but we did lots of driver changes so that everyone had at least one good session in the race.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themseleves and are looking forward to next years event.

Look at the eyes... Ferocious or what!
