Charity Karting Event 2014

October 1st, 2014

GDM Lindex Ltd held their Annual Charity Karting Challenge. Weather was fantastic and we had an enjoyable competitive evening with a full house of 25 teams.
Through the support of the participating teams and also a number of generous donations to the chosen charity, Motor Neurone Disease Association, the amount of £3,020.00 was raised.

The total raised was helped by a new event this year. There was a raffle on the night made possible by the very generous prizes given to us by the Vertu Honda Group who also participated for the first time.

It was the 17th year the event has been held and we had our most consistent team over the years maintain their number one spot, maybe due to the old man of the team Andrew Burgess not being present?

Race Results:-
1st Place: Produce World > Burgee Boys
2nd Place: Thorold & Kent > Kent’s Bangers
3rd Place: Turners > Seal Blowers

Existing lap record of 52.99 seconds set by Andrew Guest Ltd 2011 remains unbeaten.

Sweepstake Winners – £250.00 cash on the night:-
Hambaker > Hambaker Boys

Honda Raffle Prizes:-

Newlincs Properties Ltd (Weaver Wroot) – Weavers Wonders
BTCC VIP tickets – Guests of the Vertu Honda Group for a day in the 2015 British Touring Car Championship Season

Peterborough Greyhounds – Fun at the Dogs
Honda Racing Jackets

Once again we would like to thank all those companies and individuals who supported us by entering teams or sending a donation.

Keep the date free for next year’s event. It has been booked for Thursday 10th September 2015, and the charity will be the Children’s Trust (Children with brain injury). For more information see their website. . The Children’s Trust Website
