A Great Race!

West Wales 500k Karting Challenge

Well done to this year’s R M Labels Karting Team. For the third year running R M Labels has taken part in the West Wales Karting 500k Challenge in aid of the local Paul Satori charity. The total amount raised at this year’s event was an amazing £12,000 – well done to all the teams that took part.

Battling it out on the track

The guys had a really great race in the heats last week and our ace driver, Tash Greenhalgh, clinched the win in the last few minutes of the race (see Race Report at end).

Team R M Labels (from left to right: Tash, Stefan, Bob and Ash) plus our lucky mascot, Stef’s adorable son, Logan!

Sunday was the grand final with R M Labels finishing in a very respectable fourth place – well done guys, a great race for a brilliant cause.

Below is the Race Report from R M Labels winning heat!

The Heat Leader Board

West Wales Karting – Heats Race Report

What a fantastic night of racing for Leisure Night of the Paul Sartori Challenge, with a massive £1,562.62, taking our total raised so far to a £5,641.06

RM Labels started on pole position and held a small early lead ahead of Pembrokeshire Wakepark, with Pure West Radio just behind and keeping the leaders in sight for the first part of the race.
Bluestone 1 were able to take the lead after the first round of pit stops with a perfectly executed undercut whilst RM battled through the traffic.

The Bush Inn fought for every inch of the track through the race and came home in 7th place, getting in the mix throughout.
Bluestone 2 kept their noses clean, and came home in 6th place while making sure to hold their own in the on track battles.

Folly Farm came home in 5th place with the joint fastest lap of the race, finishing just 8 seconds behind Pembrokeshire Wakepark and could have been in 4th if not for a trip into the barriers midway through the race.

Pure West Radio were a strong 3rd with their second podium in two years, finishing 3 laps behind 1st and 2nd.

But out front it was nail biting stuff throughout, with Bluestone 1 holding a strong lead of just under a lap ahead of RM Labels, despite a time penalty. That gap was then reduced to 10 seconds with just 8 minutes to go, before an incident trying to get through traffic cut the gap to half a second with 3 minutes remaining! Then with just two laps remaining RM Labels took the opportunity to pass for the lead and took the win by just 3.5 seconds, leaving Bluestone 1 to finish second for the 3rd year in succession!

Massive thanks to everyone who took part and supported the event this evening and donated to The Paul Sartori Foundation!
We will be hitting the track tomorrow night with Construction Night, where another 9 teams will take to the track once again!

Heat Night – R M Labels take centre stage on the podium!

Why We Use A Traffolyte Hard Engraving Laminate

There are many different types of engraving laminate available on the market, but for all mechanical, electrical and building services uses we recommend using the Traffolyte hard engraving laminate.

We always use this hard engraving laminate when producing all of our engraved labels, tags and discs. This material can only be engraved using a rotary engraving machine and cannot be laser engraved.

Available in 1.5mm and 3mm thicknesses, the material is described as a 3 ply rigid or hard laminate (also known as Traffolyte, Ivorine or Formica).

The hard laminate comes in a variety of 3 ply colours. As an example, when using a white/black/white hard laminate, the top white layer is engraved into to reveal the centre or middle black core, so creating black lettering on a white background.

Have a look at the short video below to see why it is imperative to use this material:
