Driver Hire gets the 'Spa' treatment


Driver Hire is getting the 'Spa' treatment this weekend, thanks to its equity investment backers, LDC. LDC, an investor in the MarussiaF1 Team, has provided Driver Hire with the opportunity to display the company logo on the nose of the Marussia F1 Team cars for the 2012 Belgian Grand Prix.


“Seeing their brand feature on the global stage is something Driver Hire franchisees and staff can be proud of and helps reinforce the credibility of their business, says Tony Norwood of LDC. “We're delighted for Driver Hire to have this opportunity.”


Based in Banbury, the Marussia F1 Team is one of the newer teams in the FIA Formula OneWorld Championship. The team races in a distinctive Red and Black livery with drivers TimoGlockfrom Germany and Charles Pic from France.


Chris Chidley, Driver Hire's Chief Executive added: “LDC is one of the UK's leading mid-market private equity houses. Their decision to invest in Driver Hire in 2011 was a major vote of confidence in our business and its potential. This kind of opportunity is a real benefit of being part of the LDC family of companies."


"I wish Timo and Charles every success on Sunday. And of course, as the UK's leading supplier of drivers to the road transport and logistics industry, I'm sure we could find cover if one of them couldn't make it to the grid!”
