‘We have a huge team at home and they love working with us’: The first year of work on the first model of the ‘Runway’
In a first for a British sporting team, the British Cycling team have designed and built their first model kit for their new home.
Their ‘Runways’ have already been featured in a number of publications and the team says they have the kits in place already for their London home.
The team says their initial goal is to complete the kit by the end of June and they will build the kits for the entire team as soon as possible.
It’s not the first time British Cycling have worked with model makers and it’s not their first foray into the world of sports cars and sports car racing.
They have a long history of working with other manufacturers in this area, including the McLaren Formula One team and the BMW M6 team.
“We have some really talented designers and we are excited to work with them again in the future,” said team manager Andy Clark.
British Cycling has also recently had a couple of key clients in the UK and the teams main sponsor is Gander Mountain.
Gander, who have built the cars for a number other brands, is now working with British Cycling to make their own version of the car and is hoping to get a model ready for use in the Tour de France.
“There are some very good companies who are making some really good cars and we need to be able to offer some good quality to the team, so that’s a very exciting opportunity,” said Gander team manager Mark Clark.
