Fresh from his outing on the opening event of the Peugeot 208 Cup in France, Meirion Evans is delighted to announce a partnership with The Scan Station for the forthcoming inaugural closed road rally in England & Wales – the Corbeau Seats Rally.
Launching the partnership at the company’s headquarters in Tattenhall, Cheshire on Monday, Evans and co-driver Jonathan Jackson proudly unveiled the livery for their Ford Fiesta R5 to the company directors and their families – a striking red, black and white scheme proudly displaying The Scan Station logo.
The Scan Station is a sector leader in specialist Survey, UAV, Photogrammetry and terrestrial LiDAR services. The team, led by one of the UK’s first fully qualified UAV pilots James Maxwell, has vast global experience with projects in the UK and the Middle East for large blueprint organisations in the Oil & Gas and Telecoms sectors – to name just two. Whilst the company was formed just two months ago, the team has more than 70 years of experience between them through their parent company RSK Orbital, but this will be the first time either company has sponsored anyone within Motorsport – a great honour bestowed to Meirion and Jonathan;
“I can’t thank the guys at The Scan Station enough for helping us with this opportunity. It was fantastic to take the car up to their HQ and show them around the Fiesta R5 as a token of our gratitude for their support.
The Corbeau Seats rally in Clacton is one of the most anticipated rallies on the calendar this year, it will draw thousands of spectators into the area for the weekend as well as TV coverage after the event so the partnership with a fresh company like The Scan Station works perfectly for all involved. Hopefully the rally will be a success and we will have a good day learning the FIesta!”
The Corbeau Seats Rally, held in Tendring and Clacton is the first closed road Rally in England and Wales following the passing of new legislation during the early part of 2018, allowing closed roads for Motorsport events. Comprising of 15 stages and 45 miles of competitive action, the event will bring the sport to a new audience with no such event being held in the region previously. In addition, live broadcasting from specialist Motorsport broadcaster Special Stage TV will ensure this historical event is viewed by thousands of people across the globe via Social Media platforms.
