SOUTHAMPTON Race centre has staged an endurance event to raise money for Children in Need.

The 24-hour Le Man-style race sees all drivers using the same car with different livery and 2017 is the tenth annual event.

Each team has 3 or more drivers who take it in turns in the hot seat.

In the driver briefing, competitors were given strict instructions on the rules and procedures they have to follow, resulting in penalties if these were broken.

In the previous nine events they have raised over £55,000 and this year is already over £3,500.

This year's race was around a virtual version of the famous Imola, San Marino, a track that Formula One competed at until 2006.
