BEN AND TOM RECEIVE SPECIAL COMMENDATION FROM THE MAYOR OF MANSFIELD
Ben and Tom recently received a Special Commendation from Tony Eggington, Executive Mayor of Mansfield, in recognition of the pride they bring to Mansfield, through their commitment to sidecar racing on the world stage.
The ceremony took place at the Mansfield Civic Centre and was held in honour of Mansfield's international sporting heroes and included Rebecca Adlington, the double Olympic gold medallist and local golfer, Oliver Wilson, who has been selected for the European Ryder Cup team.
During the presentation to Ben and Tom, Mayor Eggington said, ''Mansfield is justly proud of the brothers' triumphs on the sidecar world circuit. Their award is being granted in recognition of the pride and kudos they bring to Mansfield, through their commitment to sidecar racing on the world stage, their dedication to training and application to succeed, and in particular for the success achieved at the 2008 FIM World Sidecar Championship''.
The brothers recently took time out to visit the Isle of Man with a view to having a crack at the TT in 2009! Ben and Tom, along with several solo riders, were shown the island circuit by the TT and Motorsport Development Manager Paul Phillips and many times Manx racer Richard 'Milky' Quayle.
After spending time with the possible new recruits, Paul Phillips had this to say, ''All the riders have been very positive and whilst it is unlikely we will net all of them for TT 2009, I think we can look forward to a significant number of them making their debuts in May. We are also working on a number of other riders and teams, including one or two from the continent and our aim is to put together a mouth-watering entry list for the 2009 event.''

USED ENGINE COLLECTION GUIDE
Used engines are a particular risk in a pallet network. If the fluids are not drained, they can leak, contaminating other freight, trailer/truck beds and create a slip hazard. If they are not securely fastened to the pallet, they detach and damage other freight, leak oil and become a contact hazard by falling from vehicles. Read more...
