We’re very excited and proud new sponsors of the University of Wolverhampton’s F3 Cup Team and Formula Student Car with our ROC Cases.

We are the exclusive Flight Case sponsors of the UWR team and we have our ROC Cases logo featured on the wings of the F3 race car which looks great, giving our ROC Cases brand the coverage it deserves on qualifying and race days. It’s fantastic for us to be supporting such an incredible and skilful group of Engineers who can apply both theory and practice in the industry. Good luck to the team on the track as they strive for glory, from the driver, Shane Kelly, through to all of the team in the pits and beyond.

About University of Wolverhampton Race (UWR) Team

This race team run professionally by our engineering students is part of the University’s commitment to producing graduates who can apply both theory and practice in the industry. After the success of the UWR teams' debut year in professional motorsport; the University saw an opportunity to challenge themselves further and took delivery of a Dallara F308 in early 2016 with the intention to run in the F3 Cup. This challenge saw engineering students skills put to the test with the increase in technology and power. The University of Wolverhampton Race (UWR) Team celebrated huge success and finished second place in 2016 in its debut year racing in the F3 Cup.

As seen on Episode 24, Series 4 of The Repair Shop - Music box maestro, Stephen Kember is on hand to welcome an unusual item into the barn: a wooden bench from Switzerland, with two carved bears, proudly standing sentinel on either side of a seat that plays a tune when sat upon.

Our Ultrasonic Cleaner features in this episode to clean the musical mechanism (called the Guvnor) which helps regulate the speed the mechanism turns. Stephen says; “This is a lovely and gentle way of shaking all of the debris out of the Guvnor and all of the congealed oil out of the bearings. It will do a lovely job and there will be no abrasion, no risk from cleaning of scrubbing, it’s just going to do its job.” As the musical mechanism is then taken out after the cleaning cycle has finished, Stephen says; “We’ve got a beautifully sparkly clean Guvnor… now it’s running quite nicely.”

The Allendale Group team enjoyed a night of fun (and slightly competitive) mini-golf, with a great meal at Firejacks once everyone had finished on the course, followed by more tasty courses at the restaurant. There were quite a few hole-in-ones but it was our IT Director, Scott, that took the crown this time around with a score of 43.

It was a great evening enjoyed by all and it was a good opportunity for everyone to meet and get to know our new Technical Product Specialist, Phil Cadman, a little more as well. Phil was at Bowers Group for 16 years and brings a wealth of Metrology knowledge with him to the Allendale Group & Machine DRO, we’re looking forward to what the future has in store with Phil onboard.
