4 New World Records

A British kitesurfing family is celebrating after successfully taking on the Round the Isle of Wight World Sailing Speed Challenge and setting four new World Records.
Professional kitesurfers – Steph Bridge and sons Olly (18) and Guy (16) – took to the waters around the Isle of Wight on 30 June 2016 on their foiling kitesurf boards. Travelling the 50 nautical miles around the coastline of the Island on the south coast of the UK, they averaged speeds between 16 and 20 knots.
Guy was first around the island in a time of 2 hours 32 minutes and 25 seconds, averaging speeds of 19.68 knots, with the World Sailing Speed Record (WSSR) Council confirming that Guy is now officially the Fastest Kitesurfer around the Isle of Wight.

Repair your vehicle the S.M.A.R.T way at our MALTON Dealership

Ray Chapman Motors has launched a new Smart Repair Centre, operating out of its Malton Volvo dealership, offering cost effective solutions for small and medium body damage on customer vehicles. S.M.A.R.T, small to medium area repair technology, uses skilled, experienced staff and the latest technology to keep vehicles in pristine condition with minimum cost and inconvenience. Starting from £45, small scuffs, scratches, chips and dents, as well as alloy wheel repairs, can be restored again to look like new using S.M.A.R.T. With the opening of the new repair centre at Malton, Ray Chapman has recruited specialist technician, Tom Bell, who will carry out S.M.A.R.T at its Malton dealership, as well as offering mobile solutions if customers need vehicle repairs to be carried out at home or at the office. Having been in the motor trade as a fully qualified paint sprayer for nearly a decade, Tom has worked with other premium brands including Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes where his skills had been highlighted as second to none. Commenting on his new role, Tom, an avid motor sport enthusiasts and darts captain, said: “I’m thoroughly excited to be part of the Ray Chapman team following the launch of the new repair centre. It’s given me the opportunity to progress my skills further with Volvo, a brand synonymous with high levels of quality, something I’m equally as passionate about. If you’re in the area and would like help or advice with any paint spray work please call in to see me at Ray Chapman Motors where you will always receive a warm welcome.” Duncan Chapman, Dealer Principal, Ray Chapman Motors, comments: “Following Tom’s appointment, our new Smart Repair Centre at Malton is the perfect offering for our customers who don’t require a full accident damage assessment, which can be a lengthy process, to fix those minor dents, scratches and dings. Our professional team will be able to identify how long the repair will take, allowing customers to either wait at the dealership or collect their car later in the day, at their own convenience. “With repairs starting from just £45, our S.M.A.R.T offering will quickly restore a vehicle’s full potential and potentially increase its value, particularly important if customers are looking to sell the vehicle on following the repair.”
