On Saturday, September 19th, associates from the Detroit Operations office spent an afternoon on the track at JD Racing Indoor Karting. Their Road Course style track measures 1100 feet in length and is an adrenaline-charged combination of fast-sweeping sections mixed with tight technical corners. The facility utilizes a state of the art timing and scoring system, which allows the individual to receive on-track performance, lap time results, and the ability to track one’s progress online.
Associates at the event participated in JD Racing’s Grand Prix style event. The Grand Prix consisted of 10 laps of practice and 10 laps for qualifying. Racers then went head to head in the final race of 14 laps. Coming out on top were Alex Auer (1st), Joe North (2nd) and Sam Marsh (3rd).
“When you have a group of young and tenacious people like we do at R2 Logistics, you’re bound to have a good time competing against one another,” said Alex Auer. “It’s always nice to do this outside of the office as well. The races were a lot of fun and the venue was top notch.”
