Podium finish for Moreton Hayward at the Water Companies Team Challenge Event 2014

On Tuesday 4th November TeamSport Crawley invited companies across the water industry to take part in a Team Challenge Go karting event. The team challenge consisted of twelve teams all racing to complete the most amount of laps within ninety minutes. The event was well attended with teams from Moreton Hayward, South East Water, Southern Water and other companies. The Moreton Hayward racing team line up included Simon Wood, Dan Wells and Ben Lesinski, ably captained by Gus Winterbottom.

As all twelve teams lined up on the starting grid the rivalry became obvious with everyone wanting to win, as the lights turned green the track came alive and the ninety minute race had begun. With track time being key and three driver changes to get through, the chosen tactics were to race for an equal amount of time each and hope for the best. With a few shaky laps under our belts and a driver change the team was sitting in sixth place. After another two driver changes and the ninety minutes coming to an end the chequered flag was flying and the race was over with Moreton Hayward taking second place and a podium finish.
“After the first few nervous laps the adrenalin kicked in and the team was able to really attack the course” said Gus “We got our race tactics just about right. Should we have had a little more time we would have been challenging for first place!”
