Vauxhall Vivaro Vans Enter U.K. Showrooms
Vauxhall, U.K.’s biggest LCV manufacturer, presented MV Agusta team rider, Danny Kent, with the first customer delivery of the Vivaro van, to celebrate its light commercial vehicle partnership with the 2019 Bennetts British Superbike (BS).
The all-new Vivaro van, built-in Luton, will be showcased in Vauxhall showrooms and on the Vauxhall stand at BSB race week seven at Thruxton on 2-4 August.
Six vans will provide track and offsite support during the BSB season, with the fleet including Movano and two British-built Vivaro vans.
BSB chose a panel van and a five-seater double cab in Elite trim in Amber Red that includes a heavy-duty tow bar, and 17-inch diamond cut alloy wheels. Also, the panel van has a coated lining that protects the cargo area’s floor and walls.
On the other hand, the Movano L3H3 2.3-litre CDTi BiTurbo vans offer sat-nav, tachograph and tow bar that have load areas with full-height plywood lining and floor.
“The Brit-built Vivaro and Movano vans not only look great but will provide fantastic load-carrying capability both on and off the track,” said Derek Wilson, Vauxhall’s LCV Director.
“We are honoured to receive the first customer delivery of the all-new Vivaro van,” said Stuart Higgs, Bennetts British Superbike Championship Series Director. “The fleet, including the Luton-built Vivaros we collected today, will help with on track logistics throughout the season.”
