SLM Vauxhall Technicians Win Network Q Go Karting Challenge


Three Vauxhall Technicians from SLM Vauxhall Hastings recently won the regional Network Q Go Karting Endurance Challenge at Lakeside. Dave Kent, Dean Clarke and Josh Chapman impressed spectators as they attempted to complete the most laps in the given time. The technicians (pictured) took it in turns on the circuit with fantastic results. Josh completed the first 20 minute stint in good time, whilst spinning out twice. Dave drove a strong second race, however he gained a 20 second penalty for overtaking whilst yellow flags were in place. Going last but certainly not least, Dean initially lapped five seconds faster than the overall winner and took the lead five laps before the end of the race. He won by a huge 20 seconds, despite spinning off 8 laps before the end. It was a really exciting day for everyone involved and everyone at SLM is extremely proud of their achievement. All three technicians will be representing SLM in the Network Q National Finals later this year and we wish them the best of luck!
