They have used their industry contacts to film an exciting new video with ex Formula One driver and Le Mans Winner Mark Blundell. Set in a Bentley V12, Garage Concepts’ Managing Director Rob Hudson chats with Blundell in classic ‘Carpool Karaoke’ style. Blundell explained his transition from his humble beginnings growing up in a caravan in London to competing in 61 Grand Prix races with 3 podium finishes. He also discussed his passion for cars, particularly McLaren, of which Mark was a former team member. He said: “I think it’s fantastic we have a British company building a product that is showing the engineering capabilities we have”. This view is echoed by Garage Concepts’ Managing Director Rob Hudson. He said: “We too strive to support British engineering. This is one of the reasons we choose Secureroll doors for all of our projects, including our upcoming installation at Mark’s own property. Aluroll is the UK’s largest independent manufacturer of roller garage doors, and we’ve found their products are second-to-none in terms of quality and security”. The video’s journey ends at Silverstone’s touring car paddock, where Blundell’s Audi S3 Saloon is taken for a spin on the track.
