A PACKING firm has been given the mammoth task of shipping the assets of an F1 racing team.

Pack & Send, based in Reading, has been bought in to oversee the distribution of assets belonging to Manor Racing including car chassis, wheels, trim, and specialised equipment.

Gordon Brothers brought in the firm to manage shipping the goods which are being auctioned off through manorf1auction.com until May 16.

Mike Ryan, Chief Executive of PACK & SEND, said: “We were delighted to have been selected to help manage the distribution of the assets.

"It is a huge task, but our experience and flexible solutions means that we are uniquely positioned to be able to fulfil the requirements of the auction."

Specialist pit lane equipment along with precision engineering equipment and helmets will be shipped across the world.
