"And pull away when the light turns green”

1 Jul 2010

After the decision to miss the British championship rounds, the only race for the Wttl sponsored truck is the annual outing to the Nurburgring at the end of July. As pre race testing the Seddon was entered in the BTRA Sprint Cup at Santa Pod last weekend.

With an improvement on last year of over 3 mph, the truck reached 0 to 90.81 mph in 14 secs over the quarter mile track. As the fastest class B runner of the weekend things look good for the trip to Germany.
Winner of the weekend was the MAN of Ricky Collett, the only driver to push through 100 mph.

TruckFest 3rd & 4th July 2010

1 Jun 2010

After four years of ever increasing stand space, this year sees our presence at Shepton Mallett take another step up.

As the premier event for our sector in the South West, Wttl are always keen to take the opportunity to spend time with attendees to discuss training needs or legislative concerns. Last year most of the talk was of the soon to be imposed Driver CPC, this year the figures say our industry is already well behind in uptake of this compulsory training.

In order to help you kick-start your 35 hours we will be providing discounted vouchers redeemable on any of our public courses for anyone visiting us at the show.

For further information or to book tickets online, visit www.truckfest.co.uk

If it’s good enough for Wincanton!

30 May 2010

Our Chippenham based logistics neighbour might opt for Premiership side Bath, but Wttl’srugby sponsorship stayed closer to home and was awarded to Chippenham RFC Under 14’s to provide shirts for their recent trip to the South Coast International Festival of Rugby.

After two days play against sides from as far a field as Kent and South Wales the team emerged as runners up to the home side Torquay, beaten 15- 10 in a hard fought final game.

Whilst we may be more associated with trucks than rucks, the Chippenham boys will carry the logo around local clubs as they compete next season in the Wilt & Dorset and Bristol Combination Cups.
