Even if you aren’t one of the few car manufacturers to have their own racing team, this case study might be of interest. This is because in the international motorsport circus other laws apply. Everything has to go much faster. At top speed. And at the very highest quality level. Nowhere else is more flexibility and talent for improvisation required than on the racing circuits of this world. Tough training that takes many a kitchen and service team to its limits. But those who have survived this can face pretty much anything. So naturally we were ready.
Cook around the clock
In motorsport, catering always has something of Le Mans about it. 24 hours non-stop cooking. 24 hours non-stop service. 24 hours non-stop hospitality. What can we get you?
Gentlemen, start your engines!
The team has only a few minutes to deliver everything. Not only record-breaking top speed is required, but also punctuality. Because anyone who doesn’t get off to a good start has already lost. This applies just as much to catering as to a racing team.
And the winner is …
Of course this is only decided when the finish line has been crossed. But of course a celebration is required when your team is on the winner’s podium. That’s why everything has to be planned in advance for a possible victory celebration, so that the party can start right after the race. Or perhaps not. This is a real logistical challenge that requires a lot of experience and just as much talent for improvisation. With MK Mentor you start in pole position.
and more different languages are spoken on the motor racing tour. For everything to work out in spite of this Tower of Babel confusion of languages, everything has to be planned in detail and tightly organised. This experience has proved to be invaluable at international events even far removed from the racing circuit.
Law & orders
Different countries, different laws. What applies at home doesn’t necessarily have to be legally valid on the international stage. Familiar rules may not apply at the individual venue and may even result in local operators and authorities banning an entire event. Thanks to our international experience, we avoid such pitfalls right from the start.
WHEN PEAK PERFORMANCE BECOMES THE BENCHMARK, WHEN IT’S A MATTER OF HUNDREDTHS OF A SECOND AND MAXIMUM PRECISION, YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO BLINDLY RELY ON YOUR TEAM – AND THAT’S THE CASE WITH MK MENTOR.
