The crème de la crème of the insurance industry went head-to-head at Insurance Endurance 2021, as 18 teams competed in a battle of speed and endurance at Kart PFI Racetrack near Grantham, the UK’s largest outdoor karting circuit on Thursday 23rd September.
Congratulations goes to Adrian Flux, the UK’s largest specialist motor insurance broker, who claimed the top podium position after a composed and consistent performance on the track; despite One Call Insurance being hot on their heels finishing just 26.347 seconds behind the champs. Third place went to well deserving Markel International.
New for 2021, teams also battled it out in an exhilarating sprint race, with the Sprint Trophy going to professional insurance claim handlers, Bankstone, who also set the fastest lap time of the day at a speedy 1:10:241, clocking in at 44.01mph. Lexis Nexis were crowned winners of the Pit Stop Challenge after changing tyres on a Formula 1 car, borrowed from the current Aston Martin F1 team, in a staggering3.77 seconds.
More than just a great day out and networking opportunity, Insurance Endurance 2021 helped raise £1,800 for The Insurance Charities, who every year support hundreds of insurance employees and their families in times of need, transforming lives for the better and providing an essential lifeline for as long as it’s required.
Annali-Joy Thornicroft, CEO of The Insurance Charities, commented “The Insurance Charities was delighted to be the Charity Partner for Insurance Endurance 2021. Many congratulations to the winners and a very big thank you to the organisers and all who contributed to the £1,800 raised to support insurance colleagues going through difficult times. We rely heavily on events such as this to encourage participants and other attendees to think about any current or former insurance colleagues who may need our help. Very many thanks again.”
