On Tuesday 18 January a small group of NGCM students and staff went to TeamSport in Eastleigh for Go Karting and pizzas – it was a fun-filled evening combining 2 racing sessions and pizzas.
It was a well organised fun activity – after a safety briefing and getting kitted out the first racing session started. The Eastleigh racetrack is split over different levels and has tight corners, hairpin bends and straight sections where you can pick up speed – there were spins and crashes to add to the excitement, and everyone had fun even if they weren’t winning.
It was impossible to say who got more excited – the students or the staff. It was a great competition and there was definitely some friendly banter and rivalry!
‘Invigorating experience after months of lockdown.‘
