Driving abroad on holiday for the first time can be a challenge as many countries have differing requirements and legislation related to vehicles and driving.

CHECK YOUR TYRES BEFORE YOU MAKE TRACKS THIS SUMMER
17/06/13

Following last year’s UK summer, which proved to be the wettest on record, Micheldever Tyre Services/Protyre is advising motorists before they set off on a summer break to check their tyres to be safe and secure on the road.  Research has shown that most drivers fear skidding on wet roads and with UK roads wet at least 40% of the time, there is always the danger of aquaplaning – this is when a layer of water builds up between the tyre and the road surface leading to a possible dangerous loss of traction and steering control.

A LEADING bike tyre specialist in Plymouth will be supporting a series of new charity Bike Nights in the city starting on Thursday, April 1 (2010).

Protyre Gupa-P will be attending and sponsoring Plymouth Bike Nights, which will take place on the first Thursday evening of the month from April through to October, to help raise money for Help for Heroes.

Kevin Schmid, Manager of Protyre Gupa-P, which is located at Units 1&2 Clare Place in Coxside, explained: “We are really excited to be supporting Plymouth Bike Nights, which will take place on the Hoe Promenade.

“All public donations raised during the events will be donated to Help for Heroes. This is a charity we think deserves as much support as possible.”

Help for Heroes is a British charity that was launched in September 2007. It aims to provide better facilities for wounded British servicemen and women.

Plymouth Lord Mayor, Councillor Ken Foster and Lady Mayoress, Councillor Wendy Foster will be officially launching the first Plymouth Bike Night on Thursday, April 1 at 6pm. The Bike Nights will open to the public from 6pm until 9pm.

Kevin added: “Protyre Gupa-P has provided some financial support to the event so it can operate professionally and safely. We will also have a trade stand at each monthly Bike Night to offer motorcyclists expert advice on tyre safety and general tyre information.

“We want to encourage bikers who attend the event to make sure their machines are in good working order for the approaching riding season.”

Tavistock Tyres sponsors charity horse ride
17/03/10
STAFF at a car care and maintenance centre in Tavistock are this month (March, 2010) sponsoring a charity horse ride across Dartmoor.

Tavistock Tyres has donated £150 towards the cost of transporting the horses to and from the charity ride to raise money for the Bob Champion Cancer Trust, which will take place on Sunday, March 28.

Tim Schmid, Manager of Tavistock Tyres, which is located on Plymouth Road Industrial Estate in Tavistock, explained: “We know Allen Lewis, a former Mounted Policeman who will be completing the ride, very well.

“We previously donated four Toyo Tyres to an auction that took place as part of another fundraising event for the charity organised by Allen last November (2009).

“The riders will be travelling 20 miles from the East Dart Hotel in Postbridge to Tavistock Association Football Club (AFC) in Tavistock.”

Joining Allen on the ride will be farmers, David Crocker, Crispan Alford and Kenny Watson and Nurse, Mel Pengelly. Grand National winning jockey and trainer, Jimmy Frost will officially start the event and Conservative MP for Torridge and West Devon, Geoffrey Cox will meet the riders as they arrive in Tavistock.

The Bob Champion Cancer Trust aims to improve methods of detection and treatment of prostate, testicular and bladder cancers, to identify cancer genes, and ultimately to eradicate male cancers.

Sixty-one-year-old Bob was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1979. He battled with the disease and went on to win the 1981 Grand National on the outsider horse Aldaniti. In 1981 he was awarded the BBC Sports Personality of the Year for his achievements and he set up the Bob Champion Cancer Trust in 1983.

Allen said: “I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Tim and the team at Tavistock Tyres for sponsoring our ride across Dartmoor. They always back my charity work and bonds with local businesses like this are great for community spirit."<


‘Wells Wednesdays’ back for 2010
17/03/10
CAR DRIVERS in Somerset are being offered an MOT for £25 this April (2010) at a vehicle maintenance centre in the county.

Following the success of its ‘Wells Wednesdays’ in 2008 and 2009, Wells Tyre Service on Webbs Close is once again offering car and 4x4 drivers the reduced price deal every Wednesday in April.

Richard Beauchamp, Manager of Wells Tyre Service, said: “We have held Wells Wednesdays in the past and they were a great success, so we decided to offer a special MOT price of £25 again on Wednesdays from April 7 until April 28.

“We hope that Wells Wednesdays will once again be a popular midweek money saver for motorists in Wells.”

Drivers wishing to take advantage of the Wells Wednesdays deal need to contact the centre in advance to book an appointment.

Richard added: “We’re expecting a lot of demand from motorists for this special offer because we think people are keen to get more for their money at the moment and when you consider a car owner normally has to pay more than £40 for an MOT, this is a bit of a bargain.

“There will also be discounts available to Wells Wednesdays customers on parts and services at the centre including batteries and exhausts.”

Wells Tyre Service specialises in providing tyres for all vehicles, exhausts, brakes, batteries, MOTs, suspension and servicing.

A MOTORCYCLE tyre expert from Protyre Gupa-P in Plymouth will be giving a talk to a motorcycle club in the city this month (March, 2010) about tyres and tyre safety.

Gary Patrick, Assistant Manager of Protyre Gupa-P at Clare Place in Coxside, will be giving a presentation to members of Plymouth Motorcycle Club on Monday, March 15 at 8pm at the Plymouth City Bus Social Club on Alma Road.

Gary added: “I am looking forward to attending the motorcycle club’s monthly meeting to talk to attendees about their tyres. We want to encourage bikers to make sure their machines are in good working order for the riding season that is approaching.

“I will be on hand to offer my expert advice about the motorbike tyres on offer at the moment and will be talking about the importance of wheel balancing for hi-performance bikes.

“People who are members of Plymouth Motorcycle Club will be able to come to our outlet for special offers and expert advice. At Protyre Gupa-P we have a specialist Two-Wheel Centre, particularly for motorbike and scooter riders. Club members will be able to take full advantage of the centre and the services we offer.

“The Two-Wheel Centre is fully equipped to give bikers the advice and service they need. We employ motorbike experts as part of our team where as other depots may not. Having motorbike experts at our centre means we can give bike owners and their machines specialist attention. As well as supplying tyres, the Two-Wheel Centre offers and fits chains, sprockets and brakes.”

Steve Mansfield from Michelin Motorcycle Tyres will also be attending the evening to talk to members of the Club about motorcycle products. Steve will be talking to bikers about motorcycle safety too.

Tim Schmid, Manager of Tavistock Tyres, will be chatting to members of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents Advanced Drivers & Riders (RoADAR) South Devon Group in Exeter on Wednesday, February 17 and people interested in joining the Group are welcome to attend.

“People from Exeter can take advantage of the five point tyre safety check by visiting Exeter Protyre, which is also part of the Protyre chain.”
