Labcraft Lights the Way to the CV Show 2011

Labcraft Sponsor Rally Team 2011 brings the excitement of the adrenalin fuelled MSA British Rally Championship.

Labcraft are sponsoring a rally team led by 17 year old Tom Clark, who is aiming to win the BRC rally championship this year. Labcraft have funded the purchase of the Subaru Impreza rally car for the forthcoming season that will enable Tom to go from 0–60mph in just three seconds. “I cannot thank them enough,” said Tom. “This gives me a real opportunity to have a shot at winning this year and the car looks really good.” The first race was the Rallye Sunseeker International in Bournemouth and was the

first test run for the new car. Tom and his co-driver, Alistair Wyllie, didn’t want to push the car too hard and were pleased with their overall 8th finish, commented; “Now I know what to expect from the car we are all really looking forward to the Bulldog Rally in April”. Labcraft are very excited at working with Tom and will be supporting him throughout the year. You can follow Tom’s success, catch up on the events and rally news by visiting ■

Spring 2011

The New Versatile Magnetic LED Worklite Labcraft have extended their LED Worklite range to include a version especially designed for mobile use. This new version has been fitted with a powerful unique magnet which has been designed for use on all vehicles without causing any damage to the paintwork, so it can always safely be placed in position and then removed numerous times. The magnetic LED Worklite has been designed to be powered from any vehicle with a standard cigarette lighter. A four metre extendible cable (length when stretched) enables the user to install and power the light quickly and easily. Utilising high light output LEDs, the LED Worklite will offer 900 lumens of light whilst using only 1.1A (at 12V) which is 70% less energy than halogen versions allowing the light to be used for longer without causing flat batteries. ■
