North West Accountants acquire a Racy Reputation!
Accountants might have a reputation for being boring but in the North West it seems they are the raciest of professionals!
Daytona Manchester, the Trafford Park karting venue which opened in 2000, is popular with the car mad public but in fact around 85% of its business comes from the corporate hospitality sector.
The company has been keeping track of customer’s driving skills over the years, through the use of its ‘Race Manager’ software system which records and analyses every driver’s performance.
And it seems that accountants have a need for speed. Looking at race data compiled since 2000, Daytona has discovered that the fastest average lap times have been recorded by number crunchers enjoying a corporate hospitality package at the track.
According to the data the average lap speed of an accountant is 26.017 (s)*, followed closely by sales professionals who record an average 26.021 (s) lap time. The bronze medal goes to solicitors who have an average lap speed of 26.121 (s). And it turns out that the most cautious drivers are customer service professionals who record the slowest average lap time overall at a snails pace of 29.660 (s).
A leading member of the National Karting Association, Daytona Manchester has maintained a 100% safety record since it first opened at Trafford Park eight years ago. The venue has a 450 metre long track and offers full catering facilities including a licensed bar and lounge. It’s a favourite choice venue for local businesses and offers a wide range of competitive race formats and events – ideal for team building and client entertaining.
Managing Director Charles Graham said: “With ‘Race Manager’ we can keep a record of every single lap driven at Daytona Manchester. We thought it would be interesting to look at this data and find out which of our corporate customers were the fastest drivers over the years.”
“We are very proud of our 100% safety record,” continues Charles. “A day out at Daytona Manchester is a great opportunity for professionals and business people to fulfil their driving ambitions and compete against each other in a fun and safe environment.”
