Charity Go-Karting Event details

October 19th, 2009

GDM Lindex Ltd held their Annual Charity Go-Karting Event in September 2009. This was the twelfth year and the event was a great success. 3,105.00GBP was raised through the 20 competing teams and also the generous donations received. This is to be divided between Cancer Research UK and the Harris Hospice.

Once again there were new teams. Last year’s winners retained the trophy for a second year – Game Engineering. The 200.00GBP Sweepstake was picked up by new entrants BB Price, who have supported the event for numerous years with generous donations but not entered a team previously.

Result of the GDM Lindex Charity Karting Challenge for 2009 was:-

1st place: Game Engineering Ltd Game GP
2nd place: Tilsley & Lovatt Ltd Miles Behind
3rd place: Thorold & Kent T & K Telly Addicts

The lap record remained from 2007 and is held by Paul Defustos Team (G-Force) at 53.04 seconds.

We would like to thank all the companies and individuals who supported us through participation or a donation.

Next year (2010) our support will be for a young gentleman, Jack Binstead (13 at time of the karting race) whose goal is to represent Great Britain at the Paralympics 2012 / 2016 and needs funding to continue his training. It will be in September again (09th September 2010) and if any companies are interested in entering a team or giving a donation please contact us. Below are photographs of the top three teams from this year and also a presentation giving details of next year’s event.
