BEN is celebrating raising Â£3000 following a 24-hour cycle-thon at the Rockingham race track earlier this month.
The event featured teams tackling the banked oval circuit â€“ thought to be one of the fastest in Europe.
Leading the pack and covering a total distance of 244 laps was the team from B&C Express, closely followed by the AAâ€™s Head Office team with 236 laps. Third place went to the AAâ€™s London Patrols team, which covered 204 laps.
Altogether the teams completed a total of 1,165 laps of the speedway circuit, covering some 2237 miles. Thatâ€™s the equivalent of travelling from BENâ€™s Head Office in Ascot to Le Mans in France, then nipping down to Monaco for a lap of the F1 circuit, across to the Nurburgring, and then home with a few miles to spare.
BENâ€™s Events Manager Kelly Neal said: â€œI would like to thank everyone that attended for making BENâ€™s newest event such a great success. Over Â£3,000 was raised for BEN.Â Not only did everyone battle through the rain but the night as well. We send our congratulations to the B&C Express team for being this yearâ€™s winners and look forward to seeing everyone for the next cycling challenge.â€
