PH Karting

It was off to Milton Keynes on Saturday for a bunch of PH readers to slog it out at Daytona Raceway


It was off to Daytona raceway in Milton Keynes on Saturday for 25 readers of PistonHeads. After putting faces to names it was time to slog it out on the track.

With a lengthy track and plenty of skilled and highly competitive drivers it was a tough race rather than a casual Sunday drive.

Tony Freeman organised it and despite holding the lap record there he succumbed to the pressure but his son did him proud and won, beating British GT racer Simon Pullan in the process. Pete Nixon took third with er... everyone else behind him!

Many thanks to Tony for organising the event and based on the success of this outing, there will certainly be more opportunities for readers of the site to get together and more importantly, to compete!

Thanks also to Tony Hall for these pictures.

Quite an array of cars, well done Tony and Pablo for putting this together. I promise I will be at the next one!

Many thanks for doing all the organising. Me and Mrs Smiles had an excellent time. She felt rather embarrased about bringing everything to a halt so close to the end and was dissapointed not to have made full distance. She is now hooked. In addition to this the eyesight has returned to normal and the whites of her eyes are no longer red (bloodshot)- I am quite releived.

Considering how slow I was going it felt darned fast I can tell you!
Marvellous.


PS. Get well soon to Ferret Boy.

Thanks to all the organisers - an enjoyably competitive event on an impressive circuit. Best wishes to the walking wounded, although I for one was grateful for the rest when the red flags came out!
