Precision telescopic slides manufactured by Widney are to play a part in the Ford World Rally team’s challenge for the 1999 World Championship. The slides have been specified by Pocklington Coach Works for use on four rally support vehicles for the Ford team. These vehicles are designed to provide total support for the rally cars in the field. As such, the wide range of functions that the vehicles perform places optimum utilisation of space as a key factor. To this end, Pocklington designed the mechanics’ workbench to be located on the side of the vehicle. The workbench is totally enclosed within the support vehicle’s chassis, and when required for use is withdrawn on a pair of Widney 5019 heavy duty slides, manufactured in zinc plated, yellow passivated steel.
