Teamwix to compete in uk 24 hour kart race in aid of the national deaf childrens society

Adam Morgan and members of his WIX Racing Team are to compete in a 24 hour Kart race at Teeside Autodrome this coming weekend 15/16 August.
 
They last raced at the Circuit Alain Prost in Le Mans in July and are now much better prepared for this assault.  Norman Burgess Commercial and Marketing Manager “We honestly thought that Le Mans was going to be a bit of a jolly.... It wasn’t! A 24 hour Kart race is graft, no member of the team gets any sleep and jumping into a Kart for your third or fourth shift at 3oclock in the morning is no fun. On reflection we had a great time and it’s a brilliant event for team building. We are really looking forward to this weekend and at least we know what to expect now”
 
“We have put together a crack squad for this event which includes 2 British Touring Car Drivers Adam ‘The Ribchester Rocket’ Morgan, Max ‘The Power' Coates, Reigning Clio Cup Road Series Champion Anton ‘The Mighty Atom’ Spires and ex-karting champion and current French Formula 4 sensation Alex ‘The asteroid’ Sedgwick, The ‘real’ talent in the team will be provided by Wayne ‘The Whirlwind Stevens’, our racing team apprentice Tom ‘The Tornado’ Barrow and Monsieur Jake ‘La De La’ Finch of Finch Signs. The team will be managed by yours truly Norman ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ Burgess and if required I will of course make an appearance. I was after all faster than Max Coates in France, who held me up until I could pass him on the back straight.     
 
Wayne Stevens MD WIX Filtration “We at WIX Racing support 7 year old Caleb McDuff who is profoundly deaf in the MSA Bambino Karting Championship he is an incredible talent and his driver development is constantly improving. Every penny pledged will find its way to the charity, so please dig deep for this worthwhile cause”
 
Norman finished by saying “Of course we are going to have a good time but, this is for a good cause, two of my children were born deaf and I have obviously always had a close eye on the medical advances that are made within this field, my lads are now in full time employment and lead very normal lives..... Your kind donations really will make a difference.
