Biesse UK – but Karting the ‘Italian’ way!
Part of our team had a great night out last week on the Karting circuit at Whilton Mill near Daventry. We were even more pleased when ‘Ben and Ben’ from Blum joined us!
So, all fired up with backsides just millimetres away from the ‘massive’ 200cc power plant (not to mention the brake disc…and the track!), everyone set off with the objective of recording the fastest lap.
Was Bulmer’s Benetton or Stanford’s Sauber going to be beaten? You bet they were. It was an Italian ‘clean sweep’, with Nicola ‘beamsaw’ Bruschi taking third spot, Alex ‘Akron’ Picciafuoco in second and Francesco ‘fastest service in the west’ Ulpiani on top of the podium.
What was their secret for success? ‘We don’t eat pies’ was the collective response (as you can see from the champagne photo! Oops, forgot the champagne!) Cheeky bu****s.
Remember though guys that ‘revenge is a dish best served cold’, so 5-a-side football next, or shall we wait for the World Cup?……………………..
