Track Record Smashed at Scotkart Charity Grand Prix

06 Dec

102.5 Clyde 1’s George Bowie and Des McLean joined teams in raising nearly £7,000 at the Scotkart Cash for Kids Grand Prix.

The Clyde 1 DJs joined 20 other teams in putting the peddle to the metal at Scotkart, Cambuslang.

The standard of racing was incredibly high with only half a lap separating the top four teams in the professional race.  The Cash for Kids Grand Prix also saw the Scotkart lap record smashed not once, but three times as the Sime Racing Team took the fastest lap at 29.74 seconds.

Michael Doyle Racing took the chequered flag in the professional race completing 145 laps in the 75 minute race.  SAC Racing and Sime Racing took second and third respectively.

Catch Me If You Can won the amateur grand prix by completing 134 laps in the same race length.  Second and third place were taken by The Terrible Trio and Taggarts Tarts.

Stewart Matthews, Director, Scotkart said:
“The Scotkart Cash for Kids Grand Prix was incredibly successful raising nearly £7,000 for the charity.  Although this is a fun event some of the racing was of an incredibly high quality with our track record being broken by three different teams on the night.

The event, two La-mans Team Endurance Races, took place on Monday 3 December.  Competitors, in teams of three, could enter either the fun race for amateurs or compete against world-class drivers in the professional race.

Radio Clyde DJs George Bowie and Des McLean with fellow team mates Duncan Leven (Radio Clyde Production) and Paul Saunders (Programme Director) also enjoyed a high-octane evening of entertainment.
