The Cookie Crew swept to victory at this year’s Bakers’ Benevolent Society Kart Grand Prix, which raised £2,500 for the charity.

Sponsored for the first time by Rank Hovis, the event at Daytona International Raceway saw 15 baking industry teams compete in a three-hour endurance race.

The Cookie Crew narrowly beat ADM ’A’ into second place and Rooks Racers into third. James Brunton of Cookie won the ’driver of the day’ award for the fastest lap, while Cookie Crunchers were Class 2 champions.

"We’d like to thank the teams for their support," said Rank Hovis marketing manager Sara Reid.

The date and location of the 2007 Kart Grand Prix will be published soon. Contact andrea.lewis@ for details.
