Karting at the Carlos Sainz Karting Center

Written on January 26, 2016 by Campus Life in Social, Sports

In the beginning of December the IE Motor Club organized an competitive event for all motor sports enthusiast in IE – we went go-karting at the Carlos Sainz Karting Center.

While some of the racers were experienced rubber-burners, others raced for the first time. But everybody showed great enthusiasm and had fun!

The track was perfect-nice and smooth, with perfectly lighting, it was 50% outside and 50% inside. The karts themselves were fast, 270CC, maneuvered exceptionally with the slick tires, while leaving room for adrenalin drifts on some turns.

We raced two rounds of 10 minutes and both rounds showed three clear leaders. Not surprisingly, our top racers. The names will remain secret, we do not want to scare off the competition.

Overall, the event went as it was planned – fast and fun. The IE Motor Club will is planning some fun events for this year Stay updated!

We also want to welcome the January IMBA intake and encourage them to be active, not just in class! 

Happy new year 2016!

Karting Competition

Written on July 22, 2015 by Campus Life in Other Activities, Social, Sports

kartingIE Motor Club organized a Kart competition at Carlos Sainz Karting here in Madrid. It was not only a chance to prove to each other our ability on the track but also an opportunity to get to know each other and share a common passion.

We did some warming up laps followed by a timed race. All the karts are equipped with a small GPS that allows us to check our lap time, best race time, etc., after each session.

We ended up enjoying some good hot-dogs and drinks in the karting bar.

The event was highly successful, and we had to repeat it again! Looking forward for the next one.

We are going to organize a competition against different programs, for example MIM vs MBA.

Mercedes-Benz Dream Cars.

mercedes benzOn 9th of June, Instituto de Empresa Motor Club together with Mercedes-Benz organized the Dream Cars event.

This is the first time an event of such characteristics is organized for a business school / college; Mercedes-Benz offered the opportunity to 40 students from different masters of IE Business School (MIM, MIF, MBA, EMBA, etc. ) to attend the facilities of INTA (National Institute of Aerospace Technology) to see firsthand the great performance that the AMG models can offer.

A bus picked us right after finishing our classes in IE and took us to the facilities of INTA. There we were greeted with a catering / cocktail followed by a delicious meal. Then an IE alumni currently working in Mercedes-Benz gave the welcome speech and explained briefly what activities they had prepared for us.

We had the opportunity to test the models A45 AMG, S63 AMG, SL 55 AMG, SLK 500, CLS, AMG, GLA AMG E63 AMG, M and ML AMG under different conditions and always accompanied by expert pilots who assisted us with handling vehicles and explained us their features and characteristics. We were able to try the different AMG models in the following ¨scenarios¨:

1. Circuit ability
2. Zone off-road
3. Ring speed
4. Mickey Mouse (short circuit ability delimited with cones) and slide braking zone to test electronic security systems.

After the event we were presented each with a pole of Mercedes-Benz Madrid and a keychain of the beautiful model sl300.

An experience that all participants would definitely repeat (maybe next time being a proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz.)
