Group outing

Last Thursday the group members testet their racing skills on the go-kart track, Jena. After a warm-up and a qualifying round, the field only saw Martin’s taillights during the race. He proved to be the legitimate winner by finishing the race over 30 seconds ahead of the second and third placed drivers (Johannes and André).

After the obligatory photos on the podium, the group headed downtown to close the day with cool margaritas and spicy Mexican food.
