Here at Go Plant Fleet Services, we are proud to have been associated with Thruxton Racing Circuit for over ten years.
In that time, we have ensured thousands of Thruxton’s happy customers are protected against spills and debris on the track which, if left, could cause accidents.
Thruxton would be liable if an accident could be proved to have been caused by an unclean track, so it is vitally important they can trust the company providing them with sweepers.
The 2.4-mile track in Hampshire – the fastest in the UK – hosts two of Britain’s largest race championships, British Superbikes and British Touring Cars, as well as other races throughout the year.
Originally constructed as a Second World War airfield, the circuit has been used for motorcycle racing since 1950 and motor racing since 1952.
We provide a regular mid-week sweep at Thruxton to keep the tarmac completely clean and free of any rubber deposits, oil spills or debris.
We also help clean up the track for its experience days, which attracts around 8,000 racers each year. Some of the most exotic cars such as Lamborghini’s, Ferrari’s, Aston Martin’s, Audi A8s and Porsche’s are driven on those days and the cost to replace any damaged parts can easily mount into tens of thousands – with a single windshield costing hundreds, if not a couple of thousands, to replace.
We’re always available to the track on demand too, meaning we will send our sweepers out as and when needed, before or after each race or event. At big meetings like British Touring Cars, we ensure we have two sweepers in attendance to get the job done quickly and effectively.
Operations manager Pat Blakeney, who’s worked at Thruxton for five years, said: “I have always found Go Plant Fleet Services to be reliable, available, trustworthy, cost-effective and a pleasure to deal with.”
It is long-term contracts with big names such as Thruxton which have enabled us to establish ourselves as the UK’s leading provider of operated and self-drive hire vehicles, consistently providing the best service possible with the high-specification vehicles.
Our emphasis on working hand-in-hand with all our partners and customers means we can offer a tailored solution to suit any requirements, just like we do with Thruxton, at a competitive price.
We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Thruxton Racing Circuit for many years to come.
