Kart Race To Remember Racing Star
Stars of Formula One have attended a kart race in honour of racing driver Dan Wheldon, who grew up near Milton Keynes and went to Bedford School.
The 33 year old (right) was killed in a 220mph crash during an Indy car race in the United States on Sunday 16 October 2011. On Monday night an endurance karting event was held at Milton Keynes' Daytona racing circuit, less than ten miles from where Dan grew up in Emberton near Olney, Buckinghamshire.
F1 stars Jenson Button and David Coulthard were among the stars at the charity event, which raised money for the Alzheimer's Society.
Organiser Jonny Mowlem said: "The event sold out within just a few hours and although we increased the teams to Daytona’s maximum it sadly wasn’t possible to fulfil everyone’s request to race. I can’t thank everyone enough for their support."
Jim Graham from Daytona said "Everyone at Daytona Motorsport is proud and honoured to host this event. The public′s response to the event has been overwhelming. We are sorry that we couldnt fit even more people in for the event."
