It was a pleasure to receive a visit from the icon Paddy Hopkirk (1964 Monte Carlo rally winner) last week to discuss number plate testing, legislation and his involvement with the charity SKIDZ.
SKIDZ provide industry-recognised training and education in motor vehicle maintenance to young people of all abilities. They have also launched a business to provide motor manufacturers, dealerships and fleet firms with everything they need to create their own number plates on demand.
The project is being championed by SKIDZ Patron Paddy Hopkirk, the legendary rally driver, is in its infancy but SKIDZ believes it has massive potential with profits from the enterprise going to support SKIDZ students. Check out their website at skidz.org.uk
AWL Ltd were pleased to be approached by Paddy with the prospect of providing consultation and validation for their suppliers in terms of performance against the current British Standard for number plates BS AU 145d.
