10.02.15 INDIVIDUAL LEMANS ENDURANCE RACE

DUE to uneven numbers of staff and members the 'Team Challenge' format was changed to an individual 45 minute race and a chance for the GRID to really test themselves against Crawley's staff.

Karts were drawn out of a hat in the name of fairness and the drivers were given 10 minutes to set a qualifying time. Pole position was taken by Crawley staff member Harrison Bird with a time of 24.203, close behind was GRID member Kris Healey with a 24.375 with another GRID Member making the top three just 0.299 off the pace.

The race ended up being a lesson for the GRID as the Crawley manager went clear in the first few laps and proceeded to overlap every driver on the field at least once, posting a 22.948 second fastest lap. Kris Healey finished a clear lap ahead of the rest of the pack in second place in an impressive performance.

The real battle seemed to be for third however as the battle between Brett Knapp, Aaron Coomber and Keith Relleen, all GRID members, was close all the way through. Brett ended up coming out on top taking the bronze trophy and final spot on the podium.  

Final Results:

Qualifying:

1. Harrison Bird - 24.203 (Staff)
