Prestige Fleet Servicing announces Fleet Show winners

Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire May 2015
A ccountant Kevin Avery of RaceTech, which provides a range of technical and broadcast services to the horse racing industry including photo-finish solutions, was the winner of the speedway time challenge on the Prestige Fleet Servicing stand at the Silverstone Fleet Show.

There was no photo-finish in this race however, as Avery finished ahead of all other competitors to win a pair of hospitality tickets to an elite speedway event of his choice at a variety of locations in the UK.

In the speedway 'time challenge' visitors pitted their starting reactions on a real speedway bike linked to a simulator, against those of a professional speedway rider from the Revolution Speedway team.

The time challenge was carried out on 2015 speedway bike in full race specification, powered by a 500cc single cylinder engine that runs on methanol and with an acceleration to match that of a Formula One racing car.

In a separate prize draw for a new Apple iPad also held on the Prestige stand, the winner was fleet manager Eric Bristow of Peterborough-based Hobart UK, market-leader in commercial catering equipment, manufacturing cooking equipment - under the Bonnet brand - warewashers and food preparation machines for the foodservice industry.

Joe Bhamra, Commercial Director at Prestige Fleet Servicing, said:"Congratulations to Kevin Avery of RaceTech for winning our speedway time challenge at the Fleet Show, and to Eric Bristow from Hobart UK for winning our prize draw for a new Apple iPad.

"This was our first time at Silverstone, and the event provided us with a great opportunity to display and discuss our products and services to key fleet decision-makers. Well done to the organisers, everything was very professionally organised, and we will definitely be looking at attending again next year."

Prestige, a leading provider of vehicle servicing, maintenance and repair work to leasing companies, fleet management providers and corporate fleets, is currently looking to expand its network of independent fleet Service Centres by 30% by the end of the year.

The East Midlands-based operation currently has a network of 230 independent outlets providing low-cost, added-value servicing to fleet operators, including some of the UK's largest leasing companies.

The business is to recruit a further 70 fleet Service Centres to complete its national coverage and meet increased customer demand, following organic growth and a number of new business wins in recent months.
