2011 PalmerSport fleet is brought together for a family photo!

Friday, October 07 2011

Staff at Bedford Autodrome presented the 2011 PalmerSport fleet in a 'family' photo during the recent autumn heatwave at the famous venue. The vehicles on display are available to drive at PalmerSport - the world's best corporate motorsport event - plus ARDS tests and Club MSV's brand new How Fast competition.

With the circuit and fleet in use during the day and the nights drawing in, there was little time to arrange the cars for the photo, so meticulous plans had to be drawn up to ensure that the window of opportunity was not missed. Parking spots were measured and marked out, whilst the photographer was directing the photoshoot from the vantage point of a hoist!

Just fifteen minutes of daylight remained when the cars were in place, just enough time to ensure that the 45 Instructors, 16 Mechanics and Valeters, 11 members of Management and 3 Team Leaders took their places in the middle of the fleet. Even as the sun went down and adjustments still had to be made!

Phil Ellis, Group Chief Instructor said, "It was quite a feat of organisation and very stressful for all involved but the whole team worked brilliantly together to pull it off. Next time though, I think we'll do it earlier in the year!"

The photo contains the following vehicles from the PalmerSport fleet:

12 Formula Jaguar single seaters
12 Palmer Jaguar JP LMs
8 BMW M3 GTPs
8 Caterham Superlights
8 Sodi Karts
7 Land Rover Defenders
6 Renault Clio Cup racers

4 PalmerSport Guest Buses
