Welcome to Gianluigi and fun karting again!

News

At the beginning of March we said goodbye to Matt and hello to Gianluigi! We wish Matt the best of luck with his new endeavours.

After travelling many miles from sunny Sicily, Gianluigi is now acquainting himself with his new home in the UK. He’s already testing his skills working on the backend of the larger of our client’s sites.

We decided to schedule our latest teambuilding event to coincide with Gianluigi’s arrival. There aren’t many photos from this time around, as we were too busy enjoying ourselves at TeamSport Karting in Liverpool, but here are a couple from the day.

Dave and Chris managed to get a podium finish again, with Ant joining them this time. Gianluigi told me he really enjoyed his first time racing and this was also Barry’s first time joining us at the karting track.

I’d really recommend karting as a great teambuilding activity. It’s quite hard work, with all the steering and being thrown around the kart (obviously depending a lot on your driving style of course!). But I always have a great time, just feel a little achy afterwards.

Then there’s the fun afterwards discussing strategies and results. The competitive nature of the race always appeals to me!
