I was invited to a corporate event at Speedkarting in Warrington.
I knew I wouldn’t be able to take part as I had injured my ankle, but I’ve been to Speedkarting on several occasions and driven on their smaller circuit, so I really wanted to see the full size one.
At one time, Speedkarting’s main circuit was the biggest in Europe. It had loads of twists and turns and had elevated sections and chicanes.
It was run by Unitron (you may remember I went to their Christmas party last year and attended there Era launch with Concorde).
Everyone assembles outside the cafe for a group photo (although I wasn’t able to race, I got involved as much as possible).
The Karts were of the usual superb quality. Because of the relatively small number of participants, most people took part in 8 or 9 races.
It was invigorating to see the Karts fly around the course.
In the end, it was Chris Auty, Unitron’s UK managing director who came first in the race. My assistant Dan, actually came third, which brought much pride to the IT department.
Brilliant time had by all. Just want to say a quick thanks for Mel and everyone at Unitron for another brill event.
