#KART4LIFE : 12 Hours of YORKSHIRE Charity Event Success!

On Tuesday evening 82 drivers from across the country descended upon Leeds, suited up and took to the track for a mind boggling 12 hour non-stop endurance karting race, in aid of the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charity.

KART4LIFE has grown in popularity year on year, so following our third annual staff and public events we decided to launch the BIG one : 12 Hours of YORKSHIRE. This event is designed to push the best on track to their limits and raise money and awareness in the community for the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charity.

39 hours awake - 16 hours 22 minutes at the track & 5hrs+ racing later, I can confirm it pushed me to my limits!

The top 5 positions were as follows:

1) PorscheSport 2) Muggles 3) We Are Human 4) Slightly Underwhelming 5) Bradford Bandits

Muggles 'secret weapon' Blake claimed the Saxby Fastest Lap Award with the event’s fastest lap early in the event.

The Bradford Bandits proved yet again that they are the fastest drivers in YAS with a valiant effort, battling their way into the top 5 against seasoned pros, bravo!

A huge thank you to all that took part and donated, this event isn't for the faint of heart and is much tougher both mentally and physically than anyone can imagine, especially at the legendary Leeds circuit! Every single one of you that took part collectively made it a fantastic event and I’m incredibly grateful for all the support. Photo’s/videos will be posted on in the coming days, if you have any that you wish to share, please drop me an email.

We are incredibly chuffed to have raised a massive £7044.37 for the Yorkshire Ambulance Service Charity, a fantastic result! This will make a huge difference in providing lifesaving training and equipment across Yorkshire & Humber.

We have had fantastic feedback from this event, and many requests for different and bigger races which I will endeavor to fulfill so stay tuned for what comes next! and of course our annual #KART4LIFE staff and public races are in the planning stages for early 2023.

A special thank you goes out to the fantastic staff at TeamSport Leeds who were magnificent hosts and our sponsors Unison YAB and SAXBY Surfacing Contractors, great people that ensured these events could take place.

On to the next one!
