Rallycross drivers have been joining staff from Canterbury Cathedral today to pay tribute to the late racing driver Ryan Lawford. The drivers gathered at Buckmore Park in Chatham to compete in teams of three in a 90-minute endurance kart race to raise funds for the Demelza Hospice Care.

Ryan, who was a successful rallycross driver for many years, was a popular figure in both the motorsport and the local community. An inquest last year heard the 26-year-old was found dead in his garden shed.
