The detector product manufacturer GJD is among those taking part in endurance go karting to raise money for charity. It’s an annual tradition for GJD to battle it out over a 1200m karting circuit for six hours, to help raise money for Down Syndrome Extra 21 charity (DSE21). The go karting race is the main fund raising event of the year for DSE21 and is held at Buckmore Park, Kent on Saturday, May 19. This year GJD has teamed up with Janus Technology and Coordinated Fire and Security Systems.
Buckmore Park is an international European race circuit and is one of the most karting venues in the UK. Many Formula One drivers learned their trade at Buckmore Park including Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
This year the charity race has some corporate teams including Briggs and Forrester building services specialist, Sir Robert McAlpin, the UK construction and civil engineering company, and Santander. In total there will be 30 karts racing on the track at any time.
Greg Stuttle, Business Development Manager at GJD is one of the drivers taking part. He said: The go karting race is a fantastic way to raise money for a very worthy charity. Everyone taking part always has a great time showing off their driving skills. We are delighted to be joined by Coordinated Security and Janus Technology. I am sure they will have fun, whilst at the same time helping to raise money for DSE21.”
Money raised for the charity helps to promote equal opportunities for people with Down syndrome and offer support to them and their families. It promotes public awareness of Down syndrome and encourages and helps local support groups. Visit www.extra21.org.uk.
