DGR this Weekend…

    The day has arrived to don your cravat, press that tweed and button that blazer, as this year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride takes place on Sunday 24th.

    The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is a themed rideout to raise awareness and funds for two male centred charitable causes. Since its inception DGR has spread to more countries, cities and towns each year, with millions being raised as motorcyclists from all walks of life come together. In 2016, more than 56,000 smartly-dressed riders took to their classic and vintage motorcycles for rideouts in 500 cities across 90 countries.

    If you want to put on your Sunday best and take part in the next Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride or simply make a donation, you can get more information or sign up by visiting the DGR Website.

    MOTO2™ engine takes a major step forward

    A major step in Triumph’s Moto2TM 2019 season race engine development programme took place earlier this month with the second track test at the Ciudad del Motor de Aragón.

    Following on from the extensive factory test programme, Julian Simon, 2009 125cc World Champion, Moto2TM runner-up and experienced Moto2TM test rider, put the Triumph engine development prototype through its paces.

    Coming mid-way through the engine development programme, this successful track shake down test provided essential data input into the performance and durability evaluation programme. Initial feedback from the test shows that the development programme is progressing positively and that we are well on schedule for the handover in June 2018 of the first batch of Moto2TM race engines.

    Shevron’s Pointing Towards a Bright Future

    Congratulations to Shevron Browne who recently completed his level 2 Professional Cookery Apprenticeship Qualification.

    Shevron came through Aramark’s IN2WORK programme and found a real passion for cooking. Following the successful completion of his Level 1 NVQ in Food Preparation and Cooking, Shevron took the opportunity to join the Aramark team at Factory 2 to gain valuable work experience and subsequently obtained his Level 2 qualification.

    Shevron also takes time to visit Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre to speak to young offenders about their futures. Well done Shevron, Darren and the Team who supported him to gain his Apprenticeship Qualification.

    Paint Shop Helps Local College

    The Triumph Paint Shop is currently supporting North Warwickshire and Hinckley College by supplying paint for a number of motor related courses this year.

    Throughout the academic year the Paint Shop are supplying old obsolete paint that Triumph no longer has use for, which will help college students to practice bodywork and spray paint application in their motor vehicle courses. Using the Triumph supplied paint dramatically reduces the costs for the local college, which allows more to be spent on equipment and materials. The students can also develop their skills as time with the spray gun will not be shortened by lack of paint to spray.

    The Paint Shop has also invited the class for a tour of the current workplace in Factory 1 to give the students a better understanding of a manufacturing environment where the skills they obtain are used on a daily basis.

    Factory Pedestrian Routes Update

    In preparation for the upcoming factory tours, new pedestrian routes have been added throughout Factory 2.

    Following completion of the floor painting, employees are asked to be aware of the new walkways and the associated rules regarding access along those routes. The H&S Handbook and Induction Leaflets will soon be updated to reflect the changes.
