Vacu-Lug and Westlake were delighted to treat a selection of their clients to a driving experience day at PalmerSport last month.

Vacu-Lug is the UK’s sole distributor for all Westlake Truck and Bus Radial tyres, and this event saw the brand and distributor come together to reward some of their customers with a day out at Bedford Autodrome.

At PalmerSport, each participating guest took part in a series of challenging courses, designed to push drivers to their limit and provide them with an exciting opportunity to experience the drive of a selection of impressive vehicles.

Set up in 1991 by ex Formula One driver, Jonathan Palmer, PalmerSport incorporates six miles of track and four separate circuits, giving guests immense freedom to venture across the courses at their own pace.

Boasting an impressive vehicle line-up, PalmerSport delivers an authentic motorsport experience to guests.

The vehicle line-up incorporated a Formula Jaguar, a Palmer Jaguar JP-LM, a Land Rover Defender, a BMW M3 GTP, a Caterham 7 Superlight and an Ariel Atom 3.

Instructors were on hand to assist throughout the day as guests were able to experience driving each of the aforementioned vehicles.

The day ended with afternoon tea and a prize-giving ceremony whereby guests who had performed particularly well in a specific course were presented with PalmerSport prizes.

The two guests who had performed exceptionally well overall were presented with Westlake prizes to take home.

With Europe boasting one of the largest tyre markets in the world, the aim of Zenises is to assert more focus on the European sector of the market.
