Here at Brentwood and Lakeside we’re proud to have seen many of our drivers forge successful careers, we’re always keen to help progress drivers go from a karting rookie to a professional racing driver.
The Brentwood Karting Race League has recently produced many successful young drivers with 25% of the 2018 Ginetta Junior field being a Brentwood Karting Race League driver.
Towards the end of 2018 we hosted bespoke race events and networking evenings designed for raising funds for young drivers to assist their sponsorship needs.
One such event was an end of season event for rising star Emily Linscott.
Emily invited her race team, Richardson Racing, to Brentwood Karting with their awesome F4 race car as well as Emily’s Ginetta.
Emily treated all the guests to witness a few hot-laps as she drove the race car on our kart circuit before hosting a 2 hour team event involving her 2018 sponsors, friends and family.
As well as having a great evening this event also raised funds for her racing budget, since this event Emily has gone from strength to strength and taken part in her first international race in Malaysia in an F4 car, we’re looking forward to see more success from Emily in 2019.
We also held other sponsorship events for other drivers, including Matt Luff, Matt gained the support from Romford McDonalds Group who kindly hosted the event raising more funds for Matt’s 2018 and 2019 campaigns.
Another sponsorship event we hosted in September 2018 was the Ben Green racing Endurance, who can forget Ben’s 450BHP BMW M4 GT4 hammering round Brentwood’s circuit recording a new lap record in the process.
Ben also coached a few of our current Brentwood Karting Race League drivers before his event and showed them round the car before taking it on track.
Ben invited all his 2018 sponsors and hosted a mid-season get together endurance which, like Matt and Emily races held to raise funds for his racing season.
Moving into 2019 these events are something Brentwood and Lakeside Karting would like to continue doing to help progress youth in motorsport.
With the motorsport season now just around the corner….
