THE Queen’s Baton Relay for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will will cover 120,000 miles during its 248 day international journey.
Just as well then that the Relay’s final leg is supported by a dedicated convoy of Ford vehicles. Ford is the Official Automotive Partner of the Games and will provide more than 1100 appropriately livered vehicles which will be used throughout the event and its build up.
The theme will be low CO2 vehicles and as well as the Transits in the picture, the Ford Focus, C-MAX, S-MAX, Galaxy and Tourneo will be involved.
It also means that Ford workers get to take part in the Baton Relay as batonbearers at various locations across Scotland.
Stewart Cassidy, an engineer at Ford’s Dunton Technical Centre, Essex, joined the Relay at Midlothian: “I’m delighted to be involved in the build up to the Commonwealth Games. It’s great to see Ford behind this event, and I can’t wait to see our fantastic range of products on display.”
Ford will also launch the #PlayYourPart campaign to encourage people to support their teams at the Games through social media.
