Get in the fast lane with Behind the Scenes

June 17th will see the entertainment technology industry take to the track at Surrey’s Sandown Park Racecourse for the Behind the Scenes Go-Karting Day.

Thirty teams of six drivers will put their driving skills and powers of endurance to the test for three hours of open air racing in what promises to be one of the most exciting industry events of the year. And it’s all in aid of Behind the Scenes, the charity that provides financial support to entertainment technology industry professionals who fall ill or become injured, or to their surviving family members.

“It’s a great cause, but it’s also going to be great fun,” says Behind the Scenes trustee Lee Dennison, who is helping to organise the day. “We have teams from some of the best known companies in the industry, but there’s still room for more.”

The day begins at 10am with driver registration, qualifying laps are at midday and the race itself, which includes a Formula One-style pit stop challenge, starts at 1pm. There will also be a barbecue lunch, raffles, prize giving for the lucky winners at 4pm.

“If you don’t want to race,” Lee concludes, “come along anyway to support Behind the Scenes, cheer on your favourite team and enjoy a great day of networking and socialising.”
