On April 21st the National Fenestration Awards (NFA) again hosted a fun day out at Oulton Park race track for winners and sponsors of the Awards. This year Neil Parsonson, Database Manager of the Awards sponsor Windowbase, stepped back from ‘last year’s triumph’ (as he puts it – he came in 3rd overall) to let Jess Paget, one of the team at Windowbase, try her hand at the racing. Windowbase invited Jane Evans, Director of sister company MRA, to go along too.
The format for the day was the same as last year, a series of driving experiences at the Cheshire race track. The day involved three events – Caterham driving, Land Rover Defender off-road and Toyota Rally car racing – and Jess and Jane thoroughly enjoyed it. Sadly they didn’t do quite as well as Neil, but Windowbase’s Jess did beat MRA’s Jane by one place. And, as Jess says, “It was fantastic, I loved it!”
Jane adds: “Once again in keeping with their mission to break with tradition, the NFA put on a great, entertaining day, a million miles away from the usual staid awards ceremony. Now we’re looking forward to next year’s event – though it will be hard to top this.”
