Button Wins Dan Wheldon Memorial Kart Race

Jenson Button won the Dan Wheldon Memorial Kart Race held in the UK on Monday night. Button shared the kart with Dan's dad, Clive, in their 'DW Lionheart' team. Autosport reports that the duo was assisted in no small part by a Cash for Penalties system - which allowed teams to pay bribes to make sure their rivals were black-flagged and docked laps.

The event raised around £20,000 for the Alzheimer's Society as British motorsport personalities came together to celebrate the life of Wheldon.
