Attention all Mario Kart fans: Last week 19 colleagues met for go-carting in Gollhofen. After all competitors arrived there in a (still) civilized manner with their cars, registered at the terminal and received their beautiful balaclavas, the team formation could begin. To divide up all participants, everyone had to draw a lot and then find the partner with the same number. This resulted in 9 teams of two and one lone fighter. After the instruction in the go-carts, the track and different signal tones and signs, the fun could start at least for a part of the teams of two. First the teams competed against each other in the 20-minutes qualifying session. There was a driver change after 10 minutes. After that the starting positions for the following 40-minutes race were clear. The race was already tougher: The tires squeaked, there were sporadic collisions with the lane boundaries and also crashes among the competitors. But just to calm you: No one was injured. After another driver change and the last 20 minutes it was known who would be allowed to climb the podium. I wonder if somebody smuggled in here who is not allowed to climb the podium at all? Third and second place were each rewarded with a small go-cart trophy, while the first place received a large trophy. But are the first-placed really happy about the victory? Because according to tradition, it is now their task to organize the go-cart race for next year. Since go-carting makes tired and hungry, some of the participants went home and the other part of the team spent the evening together in a pizzeria in Bad Mergentheim. We are looking forward to next time and are happy about your participation!
