Castle Combe awards night - Marshal of the year

Monday 19 November

At Damar International Ltd being one of Castle Combe Circuit sponsors under the name Sonic Equipment we were invited down to the award night they hosted in Bristol. We met some amazing driver, family members and the hard working team who keep the heart of Castle Combe Circuit ticking.

Whilst at the awards night we spoke to one of the organizers and mentioned we would like to give a Sonic Equipment toolbox to the “Marshal of the year” as a prize, after one of our very own staff members found out how important Marshals are in the world of motorsports after having an accident of his own at Silverstone Circuit the week before.

Richard Beard who is the Marshal Secretary at Castle Combe Racing Club had the difficult task of picking the marshal of the year, he chose Neal (see photo) to win the Marshal of the year and had this to say about him -

“Neal has long been a supporter of the club and circuit, certainly for as long as my records go back. He has carried out various roles on the bank including Course, Flag, Incident Officer and Post Chief. Recently he has helped out in Race Control and is now a key member of our Training Team, both planning and presenting sessions.

Neal is truly a worthy winner as whatever the role, Neal will rise to the challenge." - Richard Beard - Marshal Secretary

After spending the past couple of years within motorsports we at Damar International Ltd have always been impressed with how quickly and professionally marshals deal with an incident and make sure the driver/s involved are safe and the rest of the field can carry on racing as soon as the red flag is raised, and the green flag is waved.

It goes without saying there is no racing without marshals and they need recognising!

We salute you the “Orange army” keep up the hard work

The Professional Recovery Tow Show 2018

Friday 28 September

The Professional Recovery Tow Show is simply one of the biggest shows for recovery vehicles and services in the UK with names like the AA, The RAC and Roger Dyson. The show has quickly become the place to meet suppliers and manufacturers in the recovery industry.

At Damar International Ltd we have always had an interest in the recovery industry as it is an extremely demanding environment and requires lots of specialized professional equipment and machinery. due to this most of the maintenance carried out on the equipment is done in-house, so there is an ever-increasing demand for hand tools and equipment within the recovery industry.

We have been working hard to increases our range of tooling and equipment for the commercial vehicle and recovery industry as, so we attend The Professional Recovery Tow Show in Telford to show off our equipment.

We received a lot of positive feedback from some of the leading names in the recovery industry regarding our range of equipment and it turns out a lot of the recovery industry do not have access to the specialised tooling that their vehicles need, meaning the job/task normally takes a lot longer and more expensive to complete.

As so we saw 90% of the information and catalogues we took to the show disappear extremely quickly.

Same again next year?
