Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles has teamed up with the British Superbike Championship (BSB) to show the diversity at which these vans can provide to customers. They have been specially designed to celebrate their vehicle partnership for the 2017 MCE British Superbike Championship which got under way this weekend at Donington Park. The Vivaro Race Van Concept, based on the best-selling Vivaro Panel Van and the Movano Race Van Concept based on the Movano L2H2 Panel Van will be attending all of the scheduled UK BSB race meetings and will be exhibited for people to go and have a look around.
During the working week this Vivaro is completely functional as a mobile workshop supporting any number of trade professionals; however, on a non-working day it can be easily-transformed into a Vivaro Race Van to support track-day or even off-road motorcycling.
Along the driver side the layout features a combination of fixed racking and removable lightweight mobile workstations. The passenger side has folding shelves to store additional kit.
The space adjacent to the motorbike is maximised to help easier access in and out, and there is also space allocated for paddock stands, fuel, spare tyres, racing kit and a ramp.
There are also a number of built-in comfort features including a fold-down bench seat on the bulkhead, microwave, refrigerator and a 32-inch television.
Unlike the Vivaro Race Van Concept, the cargo layout on the Movano is intended to be permanent.
Along the driver’s side the layout features a combination of a workbench and fixed racking. The toolboxes in the workbench can be removed. The opposite passenger side has folding shelves to store additional kit.
There is also space allocated for paddock stands, fuel, spare tyres, racing kit and a ramp.
The Movano Race Concept also features a sided awning to enable an all-weather enclosed work space adjacent to the van.
A number of built-in comfort features include a fold-down bench seat on the bulkhead, microwave, refrigerator, wash basin and a 40-inch television.
Steve Bryant, Vauxhall’s head of commercial vehicle brand, said: “These two concept vehicles are the perfect way to celebrate our commercial vehicle partnership with BSB.
“We can’t wait to take them up and down the country to all UK BSB events this season and gauge customer reaction to these versatile and stunning-looking vehicles.”
