Berkeley Homes Southern hosted their second annual Go Kart Endurance Race on 11th June this year. 25 Berkeley Homes employees and some of Berkeley's subcontractors took part in this 3 hour endurance event.
Teams of 6 took it in turns to race around the track, and the winners were team that completed the most laps in the given time. Whilst the action was happening on the track, there was refreshments available and room for the spectators to cheer from. The event was held at the Daytona outdoor go-kart race track, at Sandown Race Course, and the participants were hoping to raise £7,500 for their designated charity, Queen Elizabeth's Foundation. All of the money raised will be match-funded by the Berkeley Group to the Berkeley Foundation.
