Fleeting Success at Silverstone

11 April 2014 | Updated 01 January 1970
This year’s Fleet World Fleet Show, held on Wednesday (9th April) at Silverstone, has proved the best yet according to a follow-up call to the organisers this afternoon.

They told us they'd had record numbers of visitors taking part in the busy test drive line-up (we saw a stream of vehicles speeding round the Grand Prix circuit) and exhibition along with a satisfactory seminar programme.

Attended by most of the major fleet manufacturers, the show provided fleet decision makers with a chance to get behind the wheel of the latest fleet cars, including low-emission variants along with electric vehicles and luxury models too.

Meanwhile the many fleet service company exhibitors in the Silverstone Wing reported a successful day, with keen interest from the large numbers of attendees, leading to strong demand from exhibitors to sign up to next year’s Show.

Fleet World Fleet Show organiser Jerry Ramsdale said: "Visitors don’t always appreciate the tremendous amount of effort that goes into organising a show like this but the fact that went so well is largely down to the hard work put in beforehand by the exhibitors and the organisers. We’re already looking at how we can develop the show in 2015 to embrace an even wider audience."
