It’s the Mario Kart Grand Prix!

We work pretty hard at Clear HQ but we also find time to let off steam together too. Never more so than during the Mario Kart Grand Prix series which has just started.

The rules are pretty simple. Once a month on a Monday lunchtime we take over the large meeting room where the Wii lives. We put normally rational hardworking people behind the wheel of a Mario Kart in a race against three others, stand back and watch the fireworks. We run three or four races in each grand prix. We carry our points forward each month in a league table and the winner at the end of the season gets all the entry money. But it’s not about the money – it’s about bragging rights.

To add a little more fun to the occasion each grand prix is given a country theme and before we race we have an office lunch with food from the country of that month. The first race of season was the Italian Grand Prix and guess what…..we all had pizza together in the office! It’s only a few weeks to the next instalment – The Chinese Grand Prix.

The early leaders are Peter (our FD), Minal (our sales assistant) and Justin (our technical director). Don’t say it too loud but Peter (our CEO) is somewhere near the bottom of the league!!

    It’s great to see a company with some perspective. There is nothing wrong with having a bit of fun in the office even if it means using some of the companies facilities. Clear sounds like a great place to work!
