Laura attended a wonderful event this week, the Henry Surtees Brooklands Team Challenge.
This was a charity kart event held at Mercedes-Benz World in aid of the Kent and Surrey Air Ambulance Trust and the Henry Surtees Foundation. The event was filmed by Sky F1 and will appear on the channel along side of the British Grand Prix this weekend.
“I would like to say a big thank you to John Surtees for another amazing experience. I believe it went extremely well and I had a great time. The attendance of drivers was brilliant and I think I can speak for everyone in saying that we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. I’m always keen to support these events and I look forward to the next one”
The event raised an astonishing estimate of £54,000 which will go towards helping transport many people with life threatening injuries to hospital as quickly as possible.
Laura would like to mention the following,
John Surtees, all from Sky F1 filming, Nigel Mansell CBE, Riki Christodoulou, Alexander Sims, James Calado, Sam Bird, Harry Ticknell, Antonio Felix Da Costa, Oliver Rowland, Stefan Di Resta, Tom Sharpe, Darren Turner, Jaime Alguersuari, Josh Wakefield, Frazer Rogers, Shane Lynch, Rick Parfitt Jnr, Steve Rider, Henry Hope Frost, Andy Priaulx, Malcom Barber of Bonhams, Merecedes-Benz World, Brooklands Museum, Daytona Motorsport, Millers Oils, Yorkshire (oil), Mercedes AMG Petronas, MUMM (champagne) and all of the volunteer marshalls. Thanks for helping make it a great day.
