What’s New for Freightlink Motorsport in 2019?
It’s 2019 and Freightlink Motorsport is set to celebrate its second birthday and its busiest year yet!
Following on from a hugely successful 2018 where we worked with some huge names such as Classic Team Lotus and had the opportunity to travel all over the UK and across to Europe to support some of our customers, we are now set to move on to bigger things.
What are Freightlink Motorsport’s plans for 2019?
According to Adam Redford, Head of Freightlink Motorsport:
"We have been blown away by the feedback on the work we have put in to make the process easier for teams who have bigger things to focus on."
With the racing season on the horizon, we have the privilege of joining some of our clientele at a number of events over the course of the year. These include the British GT events, with Ginetta and BTCC. We have also been invited to the Rally GB later in the year for the first time. A new area for us.
In 2019, we are looking at increasing our portfolio of customers we support, as well as continuing to help our current customers.
After much negotiation, 2018 saw us gain our first official partnership with Garage 59, as we safely transported their cars all over Europe to their events. We even joined them at ‘24 Hours at Spa’, to show our support.
We can also confirm we are excited to see Garage 59’s new Aston Martin cars, and will be continuing the partnership into 2019 and beyond.
Motorsport & Brexit
With the arrival of Brexit this month, it’s not just vehicle movement that we are finding to be more popular. Since the start of the year, we have been speaking to both existing and new customers, providing advice on a no-deal Brexit, how it could impact the movement of motorsport teams and customs declaration changes.
If you are concerned about how a no-deal Brexit might affect your travel arrangements after the 29th March, give a member of our Freightlink Motorsport team a call.
What’s next for Freightlink Motorsport?
As the popularity of motorsport in all its forms increases, we are starting to attract the interest and custom of a number of global teams who compete all over Europe. It’s a hugely exciting time as we begin to branch out and break into the wider market.
We are also constantly striving to improve our route network and make the booking process slicker, both for our freight customers and our motorsport teams. We’re confident that our service is better than our competitors as we continue to take the stress away from those teams travelling across Europe and beyond.
Adam regards the work he and his team fulfil in the office as not too dissimilar to the work of those on the tracks -
"Motorsport teams work on their cars and always aim to be over the line first. We are no different. Seeing the Freightlink Motorsport logo fly past at 150mph on a brand-new Aston makes all the hard work worth it."
If you are attending races and events with your vehicles across Europe this year and are not sure how to get there, get in contact with our Freightlink Motorsport team.
