Qualcomm goes Karting in Caxton, Cambridgeshire - 7th November 2005

As a celebration of the first anniversary of the assimilation of the old Trigenix into Qualcomm, most of the company drives (or in some cases gets in some early practice by rallying) up to Caxton, a few miles west of Cambridge for a few hours thrashing around the indoor kart track. Nosher, being the odd-one-out, doesn't get into a team, although Team A generously subs in for a 10-minute session, which probably cost them a place. However, it's a good photo-op, and gives lots of scope for dynamic action shots, although 191 photos taken with only and hand-full here is not a particularly good hit-rate. After the karting, we're off to Yim Wah Chinese restaurant on the Caxton Gibbet roundabout on the A428 - perhaps not the most obvious place, but it's pretty good
