Twelve want to be Rotarian F1 drivers went Karting@Oxford on Wednesday. After the briefing and 4 warm up laps the group was split into two teams for 25 lap races. The fastest 6 and the more sedate 6 then raced off against each other for another 25 laps!!
With a damp track, there were plenty of spins and a few bumps but we all had a thoroughly exciting and enjoyable time. The winner was Johnny (Herbert) Webb, second Nigel (Mansell) Yeadon and a close third Malcolm (no F1 names come to mind) Douglas.
A good lunch, Rotary fellowship and some technical discussions about tyres, corner lines and bragging was enjoyed at The Royal Sun, Begbrook afterwards, definitely recommend the home cooked deep filled pies!
Thanks to Andy and his team @OxfordKarting for a good time and Bob Thompson for organising the day.
