Ford success at Le Mans 2016

While in Paris collecting the Ford Chairman’s Award John and Debbie had the greatest pleasure  of being able to attend Le Mans and what a fantastic result they got!

TOP 5 in GT PRO – 24 Hours of Le Mans 
18. (68) Hand/Muller/Bourdais (Ford) 340 laps
19. (82) Fisichella/Vilander/Malucelli (Ferrari) +1m00.200s
20. (69) Briscoe/Westbrook/Dixon (Ford) +1m24.794s
21. (66) Pla/Mucke/Johnson (Ford) +1 lap
23. (95) Thiim/Sorensen/Turner (Aston Martin) +2 laps

Ford Motor Company had another memorable day 50 years after the fantastic race of 1966. Following an immense battle with the No. 82 Ferrari, the No. 68 Ford GT got its nose in front – reliving the race of 1966 between the two notorious car manufacturers. On the 3 occasions that Ford overtook the Ferrari,  Hand was behind the wheel, the Ford GT took up the lead in the 20th hour of the race for the last time.

There was a great team effort to achieve this fantastic result for Ford, to not only to be able to build the car and race it at Le Mans which is a great feat in itself they were able to win and be placed in the most challenging race in sportscar racing – we are so proud to be part of the Ford Family.

Shepton Mallet Trade show


Shepton Mallet Trade show, April 2016



It did start dry!

Brakes Motor Company went to Shepton Mallet show ground, with our  Wellhouse Terrier Camper vans and New Rangers, Limited and Wildtrak editions.

Diana and Sedge all set up for the night


These shows are great for meeting up with clients, the lovely Diana and Sedge (with their rather gorgeous dog) spent the weekend in their Terrier with us at the show, they were so kind to let prospective clients see how their Terrier was set up, they also provided us with much needed tea and coffee in the great British weather we were experiencing!

These shows are also great for meeting new people with the same interest as you, meet other people with Terriers or find cool accessories for your camper van (like funky new windscreen covers), join camping groups and find out new routes and holiday destinations.  All the shows that we have been to have been thoroughly enjoyed by families too with attractions for children allowing them to experience and enjoy an outdoor, active lifestyle.

Our next show is on bank holiday Monday 30th May in Sherborne, please come and see us (only if you bring the sunshine though!)
