Rollits and TD Travel team up for F1 Factory Tour

Rollits recently teamed up with TD Travel Group to arrange a visit for a number of their respective clients to the Marussia F1 Team Technical Centre Banbury. 

TD Travel Group is one of the UK's leading independent business travel agents and has dedicated sport, hospitality and marine travel divisions. 

Rollits recently acted for the management team in its buy-out of the company, in a deal backed by private equity firm LDC. 

Hull College student Meerko Jalal, who is currently in the second year of his BTEC Level 3 Business course, also won a place on the visit by coming first in a tough internal competition against his fellow students in which he had to demonstrate to his tutor why he should be the College's representative on this trip.

Ian White, Managing Director of TD Travel Group, came up with the idea for the tour, commenting "We were delighted to be able to team up with Rollits to make excellent use of TD Travel's sponsorship of the Marussia F1 Team by inviting representatives from a number of organisations to witness first-hand the sheer effort and technical excellence that goes into preparing a Formula One car for the season."

Tom Morrison, Partner in Rollits LLP, said "As an avid F1 fan, I was enthused by Ian's idea when he first proposed it. We are grateful for the effort that Ian and his team went to in order to make the day such a success and we were both delighted to be able to give a "once in a lifetime opportunity" to Meerko to join us on the visit.  The Marussia F1 Team made us all feel very welcome and took time out to show us some of what goes on behind the scenes in this fascinating sport."
