The UK’s leading insurance-sector kart racing event Insurance Endurance took place on 25 June at the PFI Racetrack near Grantham, the UK’s longest (1382m) outdoor karting circuit. 

In a fiercely contested six-hour contest fought out between 16 eight-member teams beneath a blazing summer sun, Bankstone narrowly triumphed over previous year’s winners LAMP Champs (who finished just 56.77 seconds behind) with RacerBlue in third just two laps behind the winners.

The trophy for fastest lap of the day went to Coplus who recorded a lightning fast 1:10:11 lap time, equating to an average speed 44.10mph round the curvy circuit. Meanwhile Plantec Assist beat off stiff competition to win the Pit Stop Challenge, changing all four tyres on a Formula 1 car in just 10.9 seconds.

It was a dramatic day’s racing with the top teams neck and neck for most of the race before a puncture forced leaders LAMP Champs into an unplanned pitstop that allowed Bankstone to get in front and hold doggedly on to a slim lead through the final few minutes of the race.

A date for the 2019 event has already been set: Tuesday 25 June. Any company working in or with the UK insurance industry can register their interests for next year’s event by visiting https://www.insuranceendurance.co.uk/registration/  Anyone doing so before 6 July 2018 will be entered in a draw with a track day for two at the PFI Racetrack as the prize.
