For one Saturday only Team Pareto put down their FM tools and picked up their driving suits as they took part in the 8th Annual Karting for Heroes Event. The event which saw 31 teams battle it out, over a three hour go-kart endurance race, is held in aid of the charity Help for Heroes.
Andrew Hulbert, Managing Director, commented “We are delighted to support this charity for a third year running and this year have two teams involved. We’ve contributed over £2,500 to this charity since our original engagement and we’re delighted to support such a worthwhile charity. Of course, whilst enjoying the adrenaline of driving at 60mph at just two inches off the ground! The event was fantastically organised and I would highly recommend anyone to get involved in 2018.”
The event held at Buckmore Park began is bright sunshine at around 5pm and finished under the flood lights as teams battled it out for first place. It is estimated just over 180 drivers took part in the event which saw a cumulative 6500 laps completed, 400 driver changes but just one winner.
