A four-man team made up of employees of GT Radial, a subsidiary of tyre manufacturer Giti Tyre, cycled 169 laps of the Circuit Bugatti at Le Mans to raise over 1,000 for Marie Curie Cancer Care, covering a distance of 707.3km in the process.
â€œThis truly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience,â€ says team member Brian McDermott, who is also MD UK for Giti Tyre. â€œThere is a 600m ascent at the start of every lap that varies between a 3.5-7% gradient. I know we were all grateful for the many hours’ training.â€
Richard Lyons, MD Europe, adds: â€œEverybody in the company is proud of their achievement.â€
