As the atmosphere settles at a triumphant Silverstone Race Circuit, we are proud to reflect on another successful weekend supporting the Formula 1 Lenovo British Grand Prix. The Scarab team – comprised of experienced members of the Service, Sales Support and Production departments – worked exceptionally hard to meet the high standards set by Race Control to ensure the high-performance vehicles on display at the event could deliver safe and exciting racing for the hundreds of thousands of fans in attendance.
Ahead of each race weekend, the demonstration vehicles provided were set up to meet these high standards, which included being fitted with poly brushes to protect the racing surface. The team used their expertise to uphold the sweeping standards expected of Scarab’s machines, thanks to the decade-long relationship held with the Silverstone circuit.
This year picked up where last year ended, as the Scarab team were deployed to the track on multiple occasions to clear debris and allow the drivers to safely deliver exceptional racing performances. The sweepers – a Merlin 55, Merin 62 and MC210 from Scarab’s demonstration fleet - caught the eye of many spectators between sessions thanks to their striking livery, which proudly donned the instantly recognizable Fayat blue and yellow diamond. The race programme was jam-packed with action, including Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3, W Series, Porsche Super Cup and Historic Car races, which saw the machines put to work for the entire 4-day event.
Reflecting on the event, Scarab’s Marketing Executive, Callum Huthwaite, commented: “providing Scarab’s cutting-edge road sweeping technology and the expertise of our dedicated employees to Silverstone each year is a real privilege. The team that operates the machines work so hard to meet the standards needed to deliver an internationally-recognized highlight in the sporting calendar. To say that we have played a part – albeit small – in delivering the event is amazing. Thank you to the team for all their hard work over the weekend and we can’t wait to see what 2023 brings!”
