With the first of the three ‘pure’ road races held on the Colas Billown Course annually, the Blackford Financial Services Pre-TT Classic Road Races four weeks away, the Southern 100 Technical Officials have been provided with new overalls
The overalls will be worn by all Technical Officials when on duty in the Paddock and around the Colas Billown Course have been generously sponsored and provided by Dickies ‘The world’s leading workwear brand as part of their involvement with the Southern 100 Racing organisation.
‘We’re delighted to be providing customised Dickies Redhawk coveralls for the Southern 100 Technical Officials at this year’s races,’ said James Whitaker, Marketing Director, Dickies Workwear.
‘Our workwear is often relied on in harsh and challenging conditions and these particular coveralls are robust and fully fit for purpose. No matter what the race day throws at them, we’re confident the officials will be properly dressed for the job.’
Chief Technical Official, Dave Redmayne said: ‘The Southern 100 Technical Officials are greatly indebted to Dickies for their generous sponsorship of the overalls they have provided.
‘The Technical Officials have an important job in ensuring that racing machines are in line with the regulations set out by the organisers and that the machines are safe to race, and the rider’s leathers and other safety equipment is in good condition. It is also important that the officials are well protected from liquids and other materials when examining the numerous machines, they deal with, more so in the event of an incident – these new overalls will serve that purpose very well.’
