Go-kart victory for dental company
Around 50 members of the dental trade gathered on Saturday 2 July at the renowned Birmingham Wheels Karting Centre for an unforgettable and exhilarating racing experience.
The event returned for a third time following two popular and successful years, and was designed to widen engagement amongst individuals at all levels within member company organisations.
It was attended by members of the dental trade from BDTA, FMC, Medivision, DB Orthodontics, Practice Plan, Lease Direct Finance, Performance Finance, Septodont, MA Healthcare, A-Dec and Takara Belmont.
The day began with instructions and a qualifying practice, followed by a two-hour Le Mans-style endurance race, which was certainly a challenge for the drivers, who wore full racing gear in the warm summer weather.
Participants raced along the track with everyone showing their competitive side as they displayed some impressive moves and tried to gain position.
The fastest lap of the race was set by A-Dec at an impressive 48.797 seconds. A-Dec was also the winning team, followed by Takara Belmont in second place and Septodont in third place.
Tony Reed, executive director at the BDTA, said: ‘The event has proved to be popular in previous years and is a great way to bring member companies together, this year was no exception. Well done to everyone who participated and helped to make the day enjoyable for all.’
