A staggering 41 teams flew off the start line at the 1360 metre International Circuit – two of which were solo drivers; Tom Pughe completed 884 laps racing single-handed in the DMAX Class and Charlie Rickett also completed 834 laps alone in a Sodi RT8 kart – an incredible effort which resulted in both drivers setting new solo endurance records for their classes whilst at the same time raising valuable funds for their respective charities.
