Karting and the Grand Prix in the Motor House

Formula 1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton raised the Club’s British Grand Prix Trophy at his home circuit this weekend and, for those not able to witness the magic in person, we welcomed members to enjoy the race within the historic surroundings of the Motor House at Woodcote Park.

Ahead of the live-screening of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, a group of members went head-to-head in their very own race at the Daytona karting track at Sandown Park. Standing on the top spot of the podium was Sam Rebbettes, son of Club member Stephen Rebbettes, followed by George Wilson, a guest of member Julian Bishop in second, and the Motoring Team’s very own Guy Nicholls in third.

Upon their arrival at the Motor House, guests enjoyed a champagne reception and buffet lunch. Members were also encouraged to participate in the Club’s in-house prize-giving, which saw the entrant who guessed closest to the race winner’s estimated finishing time leave with a bottle of bubbly. It was Frank Iredale, a guest of member Stephen Hunt, who entered an impressively close estimate of one hour 21 minutes and 14 seconds – just 13 seconds short of Hamilton’s actual race length of one hour, 21 minutes and 27 seconds.
