THERE will be no getting stuck up a creek without a paddle for the GB Rowing Team.
Making a splash amongst all the lightweight competition boats at the Reading-based GB Rowing Team are two beefy heavyweight New Daily (35C17/P) crew cabs with dropside bodies.
The new dropside Dailys, which replace two existing Daily vans on the Reading team’s fleet, will be used to transport the team’s equipment and boats to big events throughout Europe.
The GB Rowing Team has eight light commercial vehicles which support the Team who have won multiple World and Olympic medals.
John Tetley, Boatman for the GB Rowing Team, said:
“We need vehicles that can handle long journeys in their stride; it’s not uncommon for us to exceed 1,700 miles getting to a destination and the Iveco Dailys have always delivered for us. The team attends European competitions throughout the year and it’s our job to ensure that their equipment gets there safely and on time.”
Each New Daily has been fitted with a tow bar and specified with heavy-duty front and rear suspension, 100 litre fuel tank, engine sump shield, rear differential lock, 180 amp alternator and long mirror arms.
