In our latest team-building event, the Retain Limited team enjoyed a thrilling few hours at Plymouth Karting on a Friday afternoon. As you can imagine, the competition was very fierce, and we’ve just about recovered from our whiplash injuries!
We had three sessions altogether, which culminated in a 20-lap final race. Our times were calculated throughout a qualifying session, and we lined up on the grid in true grand prix fashion. The adrenaline was well and truly pumping in everyone as we waited for the green lights.
After a dramatic and incident-packed final 20 laps, our Technical Director, Darren Notman, was first across the line and through the chequered flag. Daz was followed by second-placed Sam Betts (Quantity Surveyor), and James Styles MCMI (Operations Manager) finished third. However, some of James’s tactics were questionable, to say the least!
Ultimately, it wasn’t about who won or lost the race (although Daz would disagree!). It was about the team’s realisation that sometimes it’s good to shift gears, take a break from the spreadsheets, and be let loose in a go-kart!
Many thanks to everyone at Plymouth Karting for your hospitality – we all had a blast.
