Holiday Extras Grand Prix a roaring success

All the winners of the Holiday Extras Partners Karting Event at Buckmore Park.

The great and the good of the travel industry gathered to do go-karting battle at the first Holiday Extras Grand Prix. Held on 31st May at Buckmore Park, where Jenson Button and Louis Hamilton both honed their skills, the two-hour endurance race was attended by more than 60 contestants from over 15 different travel companies.

Host for the day, James Lewis, head of online partnerships at Holiday Extras, said:  “It was a great way to say thank you to all those individuals and companies that we work with. There was some real competitive spirit on the track and some very bold driving! Thankfully there were no injuries though; everyone had fun and some great networking was done too. Just a shame about my Black Flag that cost my team 2nd place!! Im looking forward to next year already.”

Congratulations go to everyone who took part, especially those on the winner’s podium.  James Villas were victorious and snatched first place from Affordable Car Hire who came second. Proudly taking third place, was the team from Avios.
