The Girls Beat The Blokes
At Johnny Herbert’s Charity Karting Event
Despite the presence of such talents as Johnny Herbert, Allan McNish,
Johnny Mowlem, Guy Smith, Andrew Kirkaldy, Tim Sugden and Jonathan
Cocker – and that Button chap – at Johnny Herbert’s
tenth annual karting event, at The Raceway, in King’s Cross,
London, yesterday, the event was won by the ladies team.
The men were “completely
thrashed,” we’re told, the girls’ team including
Louise Goodman, Louise Griffiths (Jenson’s girlfriend), Susie
Stoddard, Helen Gardiner and Jules Kulpinski (Jenson’s PA).
There should be a full report on Johnny’s website later today…
So come on you
lot, what were you playing at?
The event raised
over £25,000 for The
National Kidney Research Fund. Jenson Button donated one of
the helmets he wore in this year's F1 Championship, and it will
be auctioned, along with several other valuable items, online at
