SYNETIQ host BARC NW Rescue team emergency training day

SYNETIQ was proud to host a training day for the British Automobile Racing Club North West Rescue team on Sunday 19th January 2020.

 

BARC NW Rescue team practice emergency training with SYNETIQ

 

BARC NW Rescue is a technical rescue unit which supports major racing events, including Formula 1, British Touring Car Championship and a wealth of BARC events throughout the season. SYNETIQ donated vehicles and organised a staged collision, on site at SYNETIQ Winsford.

The day was an opportunity for the team to practice rapid extraction methods. To make the training seem even more realistic, each exercise was done against the clock…

It’s vital that BARC NW Rescue has regular practice, to perfect methods and tool skills, and ensure the team are fully prepared in the event of a real emergency. Sunday was also an opportunity to get to grips with a new incline cutter tool, which will improve capabilities even further.

Their relationship with BARC NW Rescue can be traced back to Car Transplants Ltd, which previously hosted training days before becoming part of SYNETIQ in March 2019. SYNETIQ was delighted to continue this relationship and is looking forward to welcoming the team back soon.
