JCB is in pole position to play a vital role supporting Williams Martini Racing, as the team tours the top European Formula One circuits. A convoy of JCB machinery has left Staffordshire on a 9,000-mile summer road trip to help the JCB-sponsored team in the build-up to race days including the historic Monaco Grand Prix.
Four JCB machines have key parts to play in ensuring the team is ready to race at every European circuit this summer. The Teletruk telescopic forklift will offload race components, while a S1930E scissor lift will help with the safe construction of a spectacular three-story ‘motorhome’ – made up of nine 20-foot containers – that is the drivers’, engineers’ and support staff base at the European circuits.
Meanwhile, two JCB G150RS generators will provide power for the motorhome which is kitted out with meeting rooms, rest facilities, an exclusive rooftop hospitality suite and a fully operational kitchen.
JCB Head of Sponsorship, Edd Hood, said: “Behind every great racing team is a great back-up crew. JCB has the perfect range of equipment to support Williams Martini Racing; machines provide the muscle to build the team’s temporary home and generators power it once constructed. There is real synergy between Williams Martini Racing and JCB, each offering engineering excellence on and off the track.”
