You'd expect things to be quick at Silverstone race circuit during the week of the British Grand Prix!
The fastest catering equipment deal on the circuit this year has to be the one by John Baxter from Utensils Direct.
His client, one of the F1 teams, needed two Meiko UPster U500 undercounter dishwashers for the huge trucks that are part of the team’s HQ during races.
The only time the trucks stop moving is when they are at a grand prix or home after the season’s racing. So the Meiko UPster machines were delivered to the Silverstone site on the Thursday before practice began, installed the following Monday after the race and commissioned by Meiko on the Tuesday, before the convoy headed off to the Hungarian Grand Prix.
“The team installed the machines themselves,” says John Baxter. “As you might expect, security was extremely tight and we had to pre-register the delivery vehicle and the driver to gain access. I did enquire as to whether they needed water treatment systems to go along with the dishwashers, but the water supply to the trailers is already fully softened.”
