F1 Simulator

Cobra Insurance Brokers arranged for a 'fastest lap' competition in the Woodlands Suite entrance for guests of the AGM and Awards Dinner to enjoy. Guests could drive round the iconic Brands Hatch track to compete to see who could drive the fastest lap. Prizes were awarded (photos below) for the fastest and slowest laps! Incoming Chairman Tom Dossett seemed to prefer driving on the grass rather than the track!
