It’s that time of year again, another action packed away day for the team at NimbusPoint.
This away day included enough tapas to feed a small army and go karting at Team Sport in Leeds. The day started with vegetarian tapas at Ambiente where the team refueled ready for the head-to-head ruthless battle for go karting glory.
The team were split into two groups for their qualifying laps, kitted out with racing gear and helmets and let loose on the track. The first round was qualifying for the final race, the faster the lap, the further to the front you were on the grid for the final race. Safe to say the usual collaborative working went out of the window, with a few black flags from the first group who we can only assume believed they were in bumper cars. The second group were slightly more reserved, although there were still a few crashes, mainly out of lack of control.
The results were in, and the grid positions were announced, it was every NimbusPoint employee for themselves. The final race was filled with emotion, frustration at the car in front you couldn’t get around, laughter as another car spun into the barrier or outrage as some serious dirty tactics were witnessed. The prestigious NimbusPoint trophy was awarded to the deserving winner, or not so deserving second place after a mix up with the scores, which only added to the laughter on the day.
We had a great time away from our desks. At NimbusPoint the directors make a real effort to treat us on a regular basis and we all genuinely enjoy spending time together away from the 9-5. Next stop Christmas with maybe something a little less competitive.
