We are always extremely pleased to see our crash barrier products used to help ensure safety in a whole manner of situations. And it’s for that reason that Armco Direct sponsored the 280 Capri Club recently, by allowing our crash barriers to be used to protect their display at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
The 35th anniversary of the biggest classic car show in the UK saw the world’s largest gathering of 300 car and motorcycle clubs, with over 3,000 iconic classic and vintage cars and motorbikes on display across seven halls.
When the Capri 280 group made its debut at the show last month, the team at Armco Direct, whose MD, Darren Lallo, is a big fan of the classic car, were of course happy to offer crash barriers which stood proudly behind the yellow MKI RS3100 Capri and the white Zakspeed Tribute racing Capri.
The Capri 280 group is for past, present and future owners and fans of Ford’s final limited edition run out model of the car.
Painted in Brooklands green metallic paint with a red and white coach line, the 280 is possibly the most sought after Capri today, with some models selling for in excess of £50,000. And it is believed over half of the 280s produced still exist.
This year saw the 50th anniversary of the iconic Capri – as such, the display at the NEC was a recreation of the 280 model’s place in its history.
A spokesperson for the Capri 280 group said: “The crash barrier made a fantastic background for the yellow MKI RS3100 Capri and the white Zakspeed Tribute racing Capri – all part of our celebration of ‘50 Years of the Ford Capri’.
“Thank you again for your support and loan of the barrier sections and fittings – greatly appreciated!”
