The smell of burning rubber hung heavy over the Daytona Motorsport circuit in Milton Keynes as the fastest vets on four wheels battled it out in the National veterinary Services (NVS) Karting final.

Battling it out for the ultimate prize in veterinary motorsport.After a series of qualifying rounds at venues across the UK, the top 12 teams gathered for last month’s final and the chance to get their hands on the ultimate prize in veterinary motorsport.

The big day saw the four-man teams battle it out over two hours and, after some breathtaking racing, it was the Nottingham Cheetahs who took top honours.

Led home by Andrew Cooke and Henry Dove from Rutland Veterinary Centre, the Nottingham team just edged out Manchester Cheetahs from Lambert, Leonard & May.

Vets4Pets made up the Leeds Cheetahs outfit that took third place but, according to NVS managing director Martin Riley, even those who didn’t make the podium enjoyed the day.

He said: “It’s good to see some familiar faces from last year, but also some new teams and participants.

“It’s a great way to bring like-minded people together away from the stresses of their daily jobs where they can relax between adrenalin rushes while racing.

It’s a bit of fun for all of the team members and their supporters. Whatever their starting skill in kart racing, everyone improves during the day so participants go home satisfied and with a great sense of personal achievement.”
