Contributes five vehicles to the event
Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles is supporting the 2015 Isle of Man TT for the second year as an Official Partner, supplying a number of support commercial vehicles to ensure the event runs smoothly.
Working in conjunction with its new retailer on the island, Mylchreests, Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles is contributing to the famed biking event with five vehicles.
These include the award-winning Combo on course set-up duty, the brand-new Brit-built Vivaro 9-seater Combi Minibus used for transporting course marshals, and the heavy duty Movano Tipper which can normally be seen being driven by TT favourite Milky Quayle.
Gordon Hannen, Vauxhall Regional Operations Manager, commented: “We have already established great relationships with riders and teams alike who have recognised that our commercials can offer a very practical, value for money proposition to anyone needing vans for either their business or motorcycle race team use.”
He added: “We have already built an impressive portfolio of customers with the likes of 21 time TT winner John McGuinness, five time TT winner Ian Hutchinson, Padgetts Racing team, Tyco BMW race team and Jason Griffiths Motorcycles to name a few. And we are continuing to reach out to the thousands of motorcycle race fans through our sponsorship of events such as the Vauxhall International North West 200 and the Isle of Man TT.”
A full display of Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles will be on display at the TT Village, Noble’s Park in Douglas, Isle of Man throughout practice and race week, running from 30th May to 12th June.
