Fourteen JCB Loadall telescopic handlers were used at the British Grand Prix last weekend. The 531-70 models, which can lift weights of 3t, provided four days of support at the race circuit.

Loadall development engineer George Cooper, 25, of Tean, near Cheadle, and Sam Goodman, 21, of Derby, who works in product sales at JCB’s world HQ, waved off the fleet of machines with traditional racing chequered flags when they left for the circuit last week.
