Joey D., our electronics sales specialist, entered a contest sponsored by Sony that allowed employees of authorized retailers to enter a race challenge on the video game, Gran Turismo. Being the car aficionado that he is, Joey did extremely well during the game and qualified for a trip to Vegas to play in the national retailer championship. A three day event was held Monday-Wednesday in March and at the end of it all, Joey represented Abt Electronics and came in as the top qualifiers for Gran Turismo.
In addition to showing his video game driving skills, he also took part in Exotics Racing, where drivers entered exotic race cars such as Lamborghinis and Ferraris and raced against the clock between destinations. Joey came in top rank as well. Joey’s photo album of the events can be found on our Facebook link.
To top it all off, the final event was the Mini Cooper stunt challenge. That involved the driver whisking through an organized slalom of cones and turns. Congratulations to Joey for his accomplishments and for representing Abt Electronics!
