Karting

Friday, a whole bunch of us from work went karting at Teamworks Karting in Reading. I was really surprised to find that they were electric powered – karts are normally petrol powered, but I was really impressed with the acceleration and speed – they were quicker than the petrol karts you normally get. The scoring in the final was a bit erratic, they disqualified Chris for overtaking during a yellow flag, but that was only after Jas complained (because the marshalls didn’t spot it), which meant Jas then won, and they gave Adam 3rd place when he was actually last or second to last because his and my karts got tangled up together (meaning I probably came in last).
 
So the heats were all great, but the final was a bit of a shambles. Never the less, it was great fun and really hot work – we were all sweating buckets. I was in number 2 kart, starting 5th on the grid in the final…

Afterwards we popped into TGI Fridays for a few cocktails…
