The Pedal Go-Kart competition was the third business challenge organised by the Vancouver Quarter in 2017 and saw racers pit their skills over a course on the Tuesday Market Place from 2pm.

The winning team came from Boots, narrowly pipping design agency Studio 20a on the finish line in the grand final. Ring Associates came third.

“It was great to have so many teams take part in this challenge – my thanks to all who participated because it really was a fun event,” said Vancouver Quarter marketing and events assistant David Blackmore.

The business challenges started four years ago as a way for companies across the town to get out and meet other firms. The final event of 2017, a mystery challenge, will take place later this month.
