Suffolk-based removals company Safepac has added this eye-catching Renault T High 6x2 tractor unit to its 47-strong fleet.

Supplied by Renault Truck Commercials, the T High takes centre stage as part of a sponsorship collaboration with the McAMS Yamaha team for the 2023 Bennetts British Superbike Championship. It has been assigned the task of transporting essential spares, tools, and a hospitality trailer catering to 250 guests for the McAMS Yamaha team across various race circuits. When not gracing the Superbike events, it will be used on military removals for US forces throughout Europe and general haulage.

This is the company’s first Renault Trucks tractor, it’s previous experience with the brand being with a Midlum. The customised truck features a distinctive metallic blue full cab paint, complemented by matching side skirts, mirrors, plastic front screen surround, and a full chassis infill. The finish is further amplified by LED lamps, lo-bars, and Alcoa Dura-Bright wheels.

Inside it’s equipped with an array of driver comforts, including a TV, microwave, coffee maker, fridge, heated and ventilated luxury driver’s seat.

Safepac's director Nick Pearson, said: “Safepac has been working with the McAMS Yamaha Superbike team for four years and, as the vehicle is appearing on TV and in the paddock on race days, I wanted a showstopper of a truck, something that really stands out and showcases our own business.

“It’s not only good looking though, it’s got to be a viable and reliable working haulage truck the rest of the time and it’s got to be up to the job; when it’s not at the Superbikes, it provides a relocation service for the US military as well as working on general haulage.”

Pearson went on to praise the supplying dealer: “I have an excellent working relationship with the sales director Matt Sadler, at Renault Truck Commercials, so he was my first port of call for this special vehicle. The Felixstowe depot was brilliant. The service manager Marc Chetty, and his team were outstanding, working very long hours, nothing was too much trouble, and they got the truck ready in time for the new Superbike season. Maintenance is being carried out at the Felixstowe depot too, where we already do a lot of container haulage work, and the team are like clockwork.”
