You may remember that earlier this year we paid a visit to Jump Nation for some trampoline fun. As our second work social was looming, we knew we had to top it, so what better way to channel our competitive side than an afternoon of go karting?
We started the day in true OVG style with a spread courtesy of ASDA because of course it was important to fuel our bodies before we got on the racetrack. As you can see from our tweet below, we had plenty to fill our tummies including cocktail sausages, veggie quiche and a generous helping of biscuits, cheese and dips – pass me the houmous!
If OVG did buffets… we’ve got quite the spread! pic.twitter.com/XKP4cLzqku

We decided to make a road trip out of it so we ventured to Derbyshire, driving down beautiful country roads (and getting a little lost on the way) to the Swain’s Centre in Buxton. It had an outdoor racetrack and provided all the equipment you needed including overalls, a helmet and gloves to keep you toasty – if you don’t battle the elements are you even really taking part?
The group was split into two teams and then took it in turns to race each other round the track and cheer from the sidelines. We were certainly enthusiastic with our words of, erm… ‘encouragement’.
Take a look at some of our snaps below of the day!
The moment our Social Media and Marketing Executive, Leah caused a collision… God loves a trier…
I spy with my little eye, something beginning with… two of our Directors crashing! (oops!)
It’s safe to say we really got stuck in and had a fab day at the Swains Centre, so stay tuned to find out what our next social may be…
