September 2016

Gastite UK is part of the Smiths Group and is a leading manufacturer of CSST flexible gas piping for residential and commercial applications. Their headquarters in the UK are based in Leicestershire.

Following an incredibly successful national competition to win a track day at Silverstone the date finally arrived and the winner together with other Gastite customers were treated to a fabulous chance to try out 8 different vehicles over the course of the day as well as a lap with the racing driver Charlie Hollings who has had over 119 podium finishes.

The winner of the track day, Andrew Peet, who works as a Project Manager for Crown House thoroughly enjoyed himself together with the rest of Gastite’s customers who were invited for the day. Fastest cars were first off the grid and everyone started well. At the end of the day everyone was very confident in their driving skills until they saw Charlie Hollings get behind the wheel!

Darren Riches said ‘Owing to the daily pressures we really hadn’t researched what was in store too much, the only thing we knew was that it was going to be special and not to miss it – I can tell you it surpassed all expectations – what a phenomenal day at such an iconic venue!!

A spokesperson for Gastite UK said ‘We all enjoyed the track day at Silverstone and congratulations to Andrew on winning the competition – let’s see what we can do next year!’
