FIRST RACE WIN FOR CR SCUDERIA

CR Scuderia took its first victory today, winning the 'Racing 4 Charity' kart race, just 24 hours after launching the team in front of a large crowd at Autosport International.

There were two teams racing on behalf of CR Scuderia in the charity event: the CRS Ferrari team of Chris Niarchos, Andrew Kirkaldy, Rob Bell and Tim Mullen; and the CRS Formula Renault team comprising new signings Adam Christodoulou and Scott Jenkins, who were joined by Scott's younger brother, Sam, and Sten Pentus who tested for the team recently.

After over an hour of competitive and downright dirty racing it was the CRS Formula Renault boys that emerged victorious, seeing off an intense challenge from big names including Johnny Herbert, David Brabham, Gil de Ferran, Allan McNish and Darren Turner.

Adam Christodoulou started the race in tenth position and fought his way through and into contention for the lead within ten minutes. He soon breezed past the leader and from that point on the team didn't look back and took a dominant win.

The CRS Ferrari team drivers had a bit of a tough afternoon and were thoroughly beaten by their own CRS team-mates! "They're all young lads and we felt that it wouldn't be fair to shatter their dreams and beat then in the very first race of the year," said Rob Bell with a wide smile on his face.

On a more serious note the team won the 8,000 GBP prize money for the Whizz-Kidz charity so a successful afternoon was had by all.
