KDS RACING WIN RECORD BREAKING DAYTONA 24 HOUR

KDS RACING WIN RECORD BREAKING DAYTONA 24 HOUR

KDS RACING were victorious in the 2018 Daytona 24 Hours, ahead of 44 other teams at Daytona Milton Keynes this weekend. The record breaking entry level was matched by the record breaking 100% race completion by all 45 teams.

Winning by just 7.559 seconds after 24 exciting hours of racing, KDS Racing managed to eke out 1 hour and 36 minutes from their DMAX’s fuel tank in a final stint that saw them finish with just vapour in the tank! The fast chasing Versive – Karting Magazine team managing to cut the deficit from 40 seconds with one hour to go to less than 8 seconds at the chequered flag as both teams completed 1212 laps! Third place went to Team Applewood who’s spirited attempt at the race saw them complete 1211 laps – finishing just one minute behind the lead pair after the 24 hours.

Last year’s winners, Titan Motorsport finished 4th on 1205 laps – their attempt to win back to back races thwarted by a broken Nassau Panel bracket that cost them just over 8 minutes in the Pits overnight.

The Sodi Class race proved equally exciting with JRG Racing winning with 1172 laps, ahead of Last Place who completed 1169 laps as did Where’s The Weighbridge who finished third.

With all 45 teams completing the race, they travelled a collective 62,500 kilometres – the equivalent of 1.5 times around the World, but all drivers and spectators applauded Trey Shannon who completed the race on his own – the seventh time he has raced solo for 24 hours. Trey who raced to raise money for the MoreTourette Association of America completed an amazing 1152 laps and finished 29th overall!
