Insurance firms to compete on UK’s longest outdoor kart circuit

Tuesday 27 June sees the return of popular insurance industry motor sports event Insurance Endurance. This year, for the first time, the six-hour endurance kart race takes place at the PFI Racetrack in Grantham, the UK’s largest outdoor karting circuit. As well as a great day out, the event will raise funds for The Insurance Charities.

Open to any companies or individuals working in or around the UK insurance market, the event will see teams of between four and eight drivers representing some of the industry’s leading players competing in Sodi GT5 karts, whose 390cc engines are comfortably capable of 60mph.

The 1,382 metre track features long straights, twisting turns, and even an elevated section where it crosses over itself. With the day kicking off with registration at 7.30am, followed by team briefings, practice and qualification, the race starts at 10.30am with the chequered flag at 4.30pm, followed by an awards presentation ceremony.

Alongside the main event, individual drivers will have a chance to compete in the Ignite F1 Challenge in which the driver recording the fastest lap time will see their name on the leaderboard and receive a special trophy at the awards ceremony, with all proceeds going to support The Insurance Charities.

With just a month to go, the last few team places and sponsorship opportunities are expected to go soon. Anyone wishing to enter a team can register online at http://www.insuranceendurance.co.uk/registration.

The cost per team is £1,250, which includes kart hire, racing suits, helmets as well as breakfast lunch and snacks. Those who just want to come along, spectate and do some networking can purchase individual day tickets for £50.
