Mabaspeed in Scotland

Among the many racing activities enjoyed by customers and terminal operators was the chance to do 10 laps in a single seater racing car

Mabanaft recently hosted a race day at Knockhill Racing Circuit in Dunfermline, Fife, where guests were treated to a high-octane motor sport event at Scotland’s National Motorsport Centre.

Comprising of track racing, rally driving and go-karting, the driving experience included an initial spin in a Civic Type R with race safety training, followed by 10 laps in a single seater racing car. After lunch participants were back behind the wheel ready for 6 laps in a rally car before taking part in a 30 lap go kart competition.

“It was a great day,” said commercial director Martin Cook.

“Our guests – customers and terminal operators – thoroughly enjoyed the racing. For us, it was an opportunity to show our appreciation of their ongoing support, and spend time discussing business in an informal environment. We like to take a collaborative approach to dealing with the challenges that face the industry and enjoyed exploring, amongst other topics, the imminent changes to legislation surrounding bio-fuels and greenhouse gas emissions affecting the whole of the UK.”

Amy Johnston of Certas who attended the event said:

“It was really good, different from your typical day out, a lot of fun and not too formal – despite the typical Scottish weather, it didn’t rain!

“It was great to catch up with the team from Mabanaft; they are a fantastic company to work with, always ready go the extra mile. If we ever need information or to get a better understanding about anything, they are always our first port of call.”

The event was rounded off with a presentation ceremony and awards for speed and technique. Scott Thomson was awarded best driving technique while Emma Shorter came first for fastest Go Karting lap. Inevitably, one driver did get called out for ignoring red flags in the rally event. Naming no names, but everyone who attended the event knows exactly who we are referring to!
