BVRLA kart race raises more than £5,000 for automotive charity BEN

BVRLA Broker200

The BVRLA’s leasing broker committee has raised more than £5,000 for automotive industry charity BEN through its annual Broker200 kart race.

The race, which is in its fourth year, saw 20 teams from funders, leasing brokers, rental companies and vehicle manufacturers head to Daytona Milton Keynes last week.

After two-and-a-half hours of competitive racing, Fleetdrive Management crossed the finish line in first place, ahead of Autodata by just 66 seconds.

Rounding out the podium was the team from Fleet Assist, who completed 112 laps of the 1,100m international circuit.

Mike Potter, BVRLA leasing broker committee chairman, said: “This year’s race was incredibly challenging.

"We started on a damp track, had a light shower during qualifying and then again towards the end of the race.

"It was fiercely competitive, but we were all there to raise money for BEN, and we’re glad we could help such a worthy cause.”

The fastest lap of the day went to Matt Bastin of Charge, with a lap time of 1:11.049.
