Signworldgroup Chester Go Karting!

Friday, February 26th, 2010

As active members of the the Best of Chester last week the Signworld team were invited out on a networking event Go Karting!,

As we’re not all hard work and no play, we thought a team go-karting event would be a great idea! So we headed on down to The circuit for a very hot and action packed evening of go-karting endurance racing.

After an exciting (and pretty tiring) 4 hours, with 46 people racing, 3 of the Signworld team qualified for the semi final’s amongst 12 other competitors!. The semi finals consisted of 3 heats, 6 people in a heat where the first 2 qualify for the final!. As law would have it, unfortunately the entire Signworld team were drawn in the SAME heat and so it was apparent 1 would definitely not qualify. That 1 was our Studio Manager Jay who was clipped on the first corner causing him to spin!.
Our dark horse Peter won the race with our Works Director John coming in 2nd place!, They were through to the final.

The final race consisted of 6 people, 2 of these were Signworld employees (We’re that good!). The race was 6 laps in total, Peter started in 2nd position on the grid, and John 5th. Unfortunately, on the same corner as Jay had earlier spun on, John was clipped from behind and his race was over within the first lap, It was all down to our Pete to gain a podium place!.

Peter held his position throughout the race but unfortunately lost it on the last lap, he finished 4th.

Recognition went to our managing director Allan for his spectacular crash into a fellow competitor causing him to be disqualified!
