Vauxhall vans support Isle of Man TT sponsorship


Vauxhall vans line up at the Isle of Man TT

Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles is supporting the 2015 Isle of Man TT for the second year as an Official Partner, supplying a number of vans to ensure the event runs smoothly.


Working with its new retailer on the island, Mylchreests, Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles is contributing five vehicles to the famous biking event. 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 Richard ‘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 30 May to 12 June 2015.
