Welcome to this month’s V-FORCE newsletter to keep you up to date with what the Team have been up to.
A message from Chris… March 2020 has certainly been an interesting time. We began the month making some great progress across all aspects of the business. As the COVID-19 situation unfolded, we adapted and narrowed our activities to just those things we were still able do without jeopardising anybody’s health and safety.
So, while some R&D, vehicle prep and filming were temporarily placed on hold, we made best use of the time by developing our website, social media platforms and operational administration instead. The aim is to have everything on point ready to deliver our training courses as soon as it is safe and wise to do so.
In the meantime, may I wish you all a safe and productive time in isolation and I look forward to seeing you soon.
FORTITUDE FRONT The V-FORCE Team are delighted to support the ex-military extreme-adventurer, Darren Hardy of Fortitude Front in his Guinness World Record attempt to flip a 110kg tractor tyre for 48 hours around the Thruxton race circuit. V-FORCE will provide the logistical support for this incredible feat of human endurance by the ultra-athlete in this extremely impressive undertaking.
Darren is doing this in recognition of those suffering with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and we wholeheartedly support this great cause.
The World Record attempt was originally scheduled for the Easter bank holiday weekend however is now on hold until it is safe to commence, hopefully in July 2020.
SECURITY INSTITUTE We had a very successful meeting with The Chief Executive of The Security Institute to begin the process of preparing training courses for professionals within the Security industry. We very much look forward to serving the industry with a series of multi-discipline vehicle skills programmes in the near future.
FILMING Thankfully, we managed to achieve a significant amount of our scheduled media production during several days of filming at the beginning of the month. The outstanding James May of JamesMayMedia produced some fantastic cinematic clips and photographs of the fleet which we’ll start to share via our social channels in due course.
WEBSITE AND SOCIAL MEDIA We’re making great productive use of this prep time by enhancing our website and social media channels. Keep an eye on our V-FORCE Facebook page and the Website BLOG page over the coming weeks for updates.
We always appreciate a thumbs up 👍 or a share from our supporters
