CIOB Community

On track for charity in Scotland

13 January 2019

A new kart racing challenge saw over 90 members of the Highland construction and property sector race to win bragging rights and raise funds for an Inverness youth mentoring charity recently.

The Highland Construction and Property Karting Challenge 2018 was held over two nights at Inverness Kart Raceway with 18 teams of racers competing against each other.

At stake were the Kingsmills Cup, which was presented to the fastest team over the two nights, and the Kingsmills Shield, which went to the racer who recorded the fastest individual lap. The winners were revealed at the Highland Construction and Property Dinner in November. The event is a collaboration of CIOB, Scottish Building Federation and RICS.

The evenings raised £5,000 for youth mentoring charity Day 1 committee.
