BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (INGERSOLL RAND NEWS SERVICE) -- For many years Club Car has been the Official Golf Car of the European Tour, and for this year, just in time for the 2010 Ryder Cup in Wales, all-new tour trucks featuring the Tour’s new generation logos and color schemes will be used to transport Club Car vehicles to and from each event.
Although it may not be obvious to the thousands of spectators and TV viewers around the world, there is an entire fleet of Club Car vehicles in constant use at each and every European Tour event. These vehicles are essential to the creation and smooth running of each tournament.
“We’re delighted to continue our commitment to the European Tour,” said Roberto Gorostiaga, Director Club Car European-Served Area. “Our association with the Tour provides a highly visible and prestigious platform for Club Car to showcase a wide range of products and enhance the brand around the world.”
The Club Car fleet covers the European Tour’s needs for staging, television and rules cars. Every car supplied by Club Car is designed to fit a specific purpose and it takes two double-decker, 28-ton trucks to transport the cars from venue to venue all over Europe. All logistics for the European Tour Club Car caravan are managed by Chris Hopkins, owner of Tractor Hire, Club Car’s distributor for Wales.
