Congratulations to the Pembrokeshire Hell Drivers for becoming the first team to win the inaugural Winter Endurance League, organised by Pembrokeshire Karting.
Team members Adam Jones (New Hedges), Jake Roberts (Tenby), Dan Thomas (Templeton) and reigning Pembrokeshire Karting Champion Jason Cole (Pembroke) raced flawlessly during the three 2 hour endurance rounds.
The Hell Drivers will now receive free entry into the Formula Dragon competition, organised by SVG Promotions, where successful entrants will progress through a series of knock out stages to receive the opportunity to become a full time touring car racing driver.
Closest rivals the Average Joe's with Joshua Partis and Bleddyn Davies (Both Haverfordwest) and captained by Sam Joseph (Swansea) had nothing to lose in the final event and showed great resolve and carried out perfect pit stops but were unable to close the gap.
The Salad Dodger Racing team finished third in the League but found themselves under fire from the Goodwick Motor Services team, whose victory in the final round ensured a top 4 finish.
Championship Coordinator Royston Badham expressed his delight at the success of the League: "We were uncertain of how popular a karting league would be over the Winter, but the response we received from the teams and drivers was fantastic. I'd like to say a big thank you to Carew Karting and West Wales Karting for hosting the League at their tracks and cannot wait until next Winter."
In total, ten teams participated in the Winter Endurance League, which was the first time a Pembrokeshire Karting Championship was held at both an indoor and outdoor karting venue.
With the Winter League now over, all attention moves onto the upcoming 2014 Pembrokeshire Karting Championship. To register and for more details, please visit www.pembrokeshirekarting.co.uk
