MIRA Technology Park Challenge

The 8th of October saw the inaugural MIRA Technology Park Challenge event bringing together 12 teams from companies based at the Park for a fun evening of Karting.  Three hours of highly competitive racing resulted in Bosch Engineering Group emerging as the overall winners with VOCIS and GiTi Tyres  taking 2nd and 3rd place.  GiTi Tyres team member Martin Gibson put together an astonishing performance to scoop the fastest lap prize.

The MIRA Technology Park Challenge event is one of a number of initiatives the Technology Park team have introduced to facilitate networking and engagement between the many companies that have chosen to locate their R&D operations at MIRA Technology Park and become part of this growing automotive technology cluster.

 Wolfram Goecken, Director, Bosch Engineering GB commented “We were delighted to win the 2015 MIRA Technology Park Challenge. It was a great event and to be honest I was surprised how competitive we have been! I am sure we will also follow any other kind of events organized by the MIRA team as it is always a great opportunity for networking and for sure it is also great fun!
