A Luton pub company proved it’s the the best – bar none – when it comes to corporate kart racing in Milton Keynes.

The Swamp Stormers of Stonegate Pub Company, in Capability Green, took the title and the fastest lap at the Mazars fifth annual racing event at Daytona, in Dansteed Way, Rooksley, on September 5.

In second place was a team from Barclays Bank in Milton Keynes called Corbett’s Cabs and the new city also took the third place slot with The Dawson Hotrods from Dawson Group.

This year saw a new competition for best team name added to the proceedings which was won by a last-minute entry from Will ‘n’ Go, a team consisting of supporters of Willen Hospice.

Stephen Eames, managing partner at Mazars, an audit, advisory, accounting and tax services firm in Milton Keynes, said: “This race has become our most popular hospitality event in our regional calendar. It’s great to get teams from across the business community together – each year they become more determined and competitive.

“It’s not uncommon to discover that companies have held heats amongst their employees prior to our race night to decide who should be on their teams.”

For the record the team members were:

Stonegate Pub Company: Luke Bailey, Jason Morton, Hemal Morjaria and Dom Jones.

Barclays Bank: Dave Davies, Gareth Farbon, Glen McDonald and Mark Diver

Dawson Group: Tony Coleman, Richard Bulmer, Chris Tapp and James Green.
