16 members of MAST’s HQ headed out of the office yesterday to put their driving skills to the test at Rye House Kart Raceway for their annual team-building event.
Rye House Kart Raceway has become one of the UK’s foremost karting centres and offers the perfect introduction into the world of motorsport. The historic racing circuit is one of the oldest in existence and over the years has hosted many national and international meetings, as well as club meetings. It is also where Lewis Hamilton, Formula 1 five-time world champion, was spotted.
It wasn’t long before the team took to the famous track and some very competitive karting ensued. 30 minutes later, a combined team total of 245 track laps and not quite world champion speeds, it was Ben Stewart, Director Maritime, who won the first-place spot with a best lap time of 45.462. Closely followed by Adam Usher, Director, Physical and Asset Protection, with 45.533 and Danny Pitt, National Account Manager, Physical and Asset Protection, with 46.644.
