Children’s superheroes descend on Brands Hatch for Comic Relief

Superheroes race at Brands Hatch for Comic Relief

A series of superheroes and toys descended on Brands Hatch on Wednesday (16 March) for a race with a difference to raise money for Comic Relief.

Captain America, Buzz Lightyear, Spiderman, Bananaman, Morph, Barbie & Ken, the Honey Monster, a Green Army Man from Toy Story and Katsuma all took part in a race on Razor scooters in an event jointly organised by Brands Hatch and Toyology.

The characters lined up on the grid for a standing start before a drag race to the finish line, with Captain America securing the win ahead of Buzz Lightyear and Bananaman.

The event raised over £2,000 for Comic Relief and organiser Peter Jenkinson from Toyology was delighted with the way the day went: “A huge shout to the riders who braved the chill to get out on the track and help raise money for a worthy cause, especially Barbie and the team at Brands Hatch helping keep the motley crew of kids’ characters in order. We’re already excited about next year’s event.”
