Even as Bankstone News goes to press Bankstone’s crack karting team is out in Daytona competing in the Milton Keynes Insurance Endurance karting event.

The infamous six-hour kart endurance race gruels participants with endless belting round a wiggly tarmac course fringed with stacks of car tires. It also features a Formula One style Pit Stop Challenge.

STOP PRESS: Bankstoners scoop pit stop prize

After six years trying – best result to date second place – Team Bankstone (currently running around 12th in the main event) has finally cracked

it and WON the Insurance Endurance pitstop challenge. It took the boys a mere 21.42 seconds (remarkably close to the 3 second standard set by real F1 crews) to swap all four wheels on an ex-Jordan Formula 1 car driven by Heinz-Harald Frentzen in three races back in 2000.

What our clients say about us

Jo was friendly while still professional. She answered any questions and was patient and happy to help. Next steps and cover confirmation could have been a bit clearer. I've had calls from credit hire that I was expecting for replacement bike but they were pushing to do repairs. I was told this would be done by an approved repair. I called just after 9am to notify a claim and was told I would receive a call back within 10 to 15mins. I had to call back an hour later as no one had called back. The lady who answered, Jo, did deal with things straight away and was very helpful
