David Brabham summoned his most charitable racing friends to take part in the 2009 BP Ultimate Celebrity Kart Challenge at Autosport International. The cold January weather didn’t deter the group of international racers who gave up their time to raise money for the charities involved.
Thirty-two members of the public each donated £300 for the privilege of racing alongside their motor sport heroes, which included the likes of Emanuele Pirro, Tom Kristensen and Frank Biela.
After a thrilling one hour and 45 minutes of wheel-to-wheel action it was Team Good Mornin’, featuring Duncan Tappy and Ben Hanley, who finally took the spoils.
The kart race and a Racing 4 Charity Auction successfully raised £45,000 at the NEC show, adding to the £300,000 already raised over the past 10 years by Brabham and Bill Williams.
