Pirtek approached Signs Express (Peterborough) to see if they could turn a silver Fiesta van into a blue Pirtek branded replica rally car.
The Peterborough team willingly accepted the challenge and set to work, firstly by a wrap, which changed the colour from silver to blue. The design for the van was based on the actual rally cars, driven by Andrew Jordan and Jeff Smith on behalf of Pirtek Racing (Eurotech Racing) in the British Touring Car Championships. The overlay graphics were then applied in both flat and reflective colours. The remainder of the logos were all printed and then cut, with even the mirrors wrapped to create a complete colour change.
The vehicle, which is unrecognisable from its original state, creates an exciting form of transportation for Pirtek employees when it is used to deliver their products to customers.
John Hector of Pirtek commented; “It’s great to find like-minded business owners who provide a high quality professional service. We’ve received many positive comments from customers as the graphics are a great advertising tool and a perfect replica of our actual sponsored rally car.”
Pirtek, which has over 90 centres in the UK supported by 400 mobile service workshops, is Europe's Number 1 provider of on-site hydraulic hose repairs.
