Karting Endurance Race

Sutton Circuit, Broughton Astley, 5 September 2022

Finally back to Sutton Circuit for a BRILLIANT Karting Endurance race!  And for a change – only a very tiny bit of rain….

5 September is the earliest we’ve held a karting extravaganza in a very long time and starting at 6.30pm it was great to get more running time in the light. But still we had the Le Mans 24 hours feel of dusk going into darkness, with added changes in grip levels.

We had 25 along on the night, mainly our Section plus a few friends and family, a few members from East Midlands Abarth Club and a group of 4 from Research Garage, including Saber Ali of course.

Fastest lap was won by Connor Smith (East Mids Abarth) – just pipping StJohn Krog and Kev Bunney from ‘our side’, all REALLY  quick guys with laps separated by hundredths of a second!  

Team awards were (top 3)

3rd Paul Jones, Saber Ali and Brett Smith all from AROC!

2nd Mark Sangster, Mike Frost and Chris Sivell

And the winners….   Connor Smith, StJohn Krog and Keith Krog!

A super evening – we’ll be back!  John
