Architect makes it on to go-carting podium

Architect James Burton of DLA Architecture fought off the construction industry's top go-carters to snatch third place in the final of the 2005 Schüco Karting Challenge.

The competition, held last week at Whilton Mill in Northamptonshire, was won by James Godfrey of Balfour Beatty Construction, who took the chequered flag just 1.68 seconds ahead of former champion Jonathan Lisseter, from the ATP Group.

All three now qualify for the European Schüco Karting Challenge in Majorca in October.

After battling through six regional qualifying rounds, 20 drivers made it to the final and had to brave a wet track to vie for the trophy.

Open to employees of architectural practices, contractors, developers and consultants within the UK construction industry, the event is organised by Walnut Motorsport.
