Several members of our Ashford depot were invited to take part in the Kier Karting Fun Day for Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT) earlier this month. Kier have been raising funds for the worthwhile charity for several years and the karting days held in Kent have since raised nearly £60,000.
There were multiple ways in which participants could enter with the entry fee being donated straight to the charity. As a company the Ashford depot took part as a corporate team with each individual having a set time for their turn behind the wheel.
SHB staff got themselves revved up as they each took to the wheel clocking up some pretty impressive lap times.
Ashford’s Workshop Manager, Trevor Brooks, said: “All six of us had a great evening racing around the track, I was a budding Lewis Hamilton and Lewis Mason was a Nico Rosberg, We were both trying to get the fastest lap of our group, as the fastest lap was set at 00.51secs (set by a racing pro).
I recorded a lap of 0.55.840 only for Lewis to come in with a lap of 0.55.400 (Last lap of the race).”
Thankfully there were no fatal crashes just a few bruised egos!
