Mistakes were made at this weekends’ Formula One Grand Prix but one life saving charity is calling on its supporters not to take a pit stop in the wrong garage when it comes to their own race on Saturday 6 April.

The East Anglian Air Ambulance (EAAA) Grand Prix takes place at Ellough Park Raceway near Beccles, Suffolk, and the Charity still has a few places available for wannabe racing drivers who do know when it’s appropriate to take a rest.


Olly Larkin, from EAAA, said: “Many people will have seen Lewis Hamilton stop in front of the wrong garage for his pit stop at the Malaysian Grand Prix this weekend and will have thought they could do a better job. Well why not come and show us how good you are? We still have a few places available and would love to see as any people as possible jump in to a go-kart and show us their driving skills. We just hope they remember which team they’re racing for when it comes to changing drivers!”


Teams will consist of three to five drivers and are asked to pay an entry fee of £80 (per team) which will cover the cost of suit, glove and helmet hire for all those taking part. They will also be entered in to a one hour endurance race with winners entered into a Super Final. All teams are asked to raise £100 for the charity which will go towards ensuring that the two dedicated air ambulances operated by EAAA can continue to transport highly skilled doctors and critical care paramedics to the scenes of emergencies across the region.
