Brighton Le Mans

On Wednesday night a number of Brighton’s digital agencies descended upon the new TeamSport karting track in Worthing for an evening of team endurance racing – Le Mans for geeks!

Just like Audi and Peugeot at Circuit de la SartheMakemedia took two teams to race, complete with F1 pun-based names. ‘Team Briatore‘ included our strongest drivers from previous karting outings, with ‘The Bootleg Brundles‘ constituting our b-team, including yours truly as forth-stint driver.

With it’s wide track and hairpin bends, the Worthing circuit is perfect for this type of event, allowing for safer overtaking than the more technical TeamSport circuit in nearby Crawley. Even so, there were plenty of black flags, the occassional Vettel-style jesticulation, and a handful of drive-through penalties for those swapping paint on track.

After ninety minutes of tight racing, Makemedia’s a-team emerged triumphant, with Ocasta Studio and Clearleft taking second and third places respectively.

The Ocasta team were shooting footage of the action much of the evening, and put together a short highlights clip which is worth a watch.

I can’t wait for the next round!
