Preparing For a Team Event with a Panel Van Conversion

If you have a team event company in the world of motorsports then it is crucial that you have a vehicle that is reliable and versatile. Panel van conversions offer customisable and practical solutions that can cater to the specific needs of any racing team. No matter what you’re looking for, panel van conversions here at The Awning Company can ensure you have everything you need to be fully prepared for the race. 

In this article, we will take a closer look at what a panel van is, what a panel van conversion involves, and how they are precisely what you need for your race vans at your next team event. Read on to find out more about what we can offer to ensure you have an amazing race weekend experience. 

What is a panel van?

A panel van is a form of commercial vehicle that is designed for transporting cargo or goods. In motorsports, a panel van is modified so that it can be used for competitive events and races. Generally, panel vans are customised to improve performance, enhance speed & handling, and overall competitive performance. There are a number of modifications that can be made to a panel van to make it as competitive and enhanced for a specific team event as possible. These include: 

  • Engine upgrades
  • Safety features 
  • Brake and tire upgrades.

But if you want to transform your panel van and make it team event ready, then you need the help of our motoring awning specialists here at The Awning Company. We have been designing, manufacturing, and building race structures and awnings for over 30 years and offer long-lasting and durable free-standing motorsport bespoke awnings that provide you with everything you need to prepare for a team event. Here is more information on exactly what we can offer you.

Versatile panel van conversions

Panel van conversions have become increasingly popular amongst motorsport teams and enthusiasts as they’ve discovered the capabilities, adaptability, and versatility of what they can offer. A panel van conversion involves transforming a standard panel van into a mobile base camp that is fully functional with sleeping arrangements, storage space and necessary amenities. 

Improve your team event weekend

While panel van conversions are a great way to enhance your team’s performance at your next race, another great way to improve race vans is to utilise the quality awnings available here at The Awning Co. By adding a customised van awning you can take your experience to a whole new level. They work as great versatile extensions to your panel van to extend that space that you can use and also provide a sheltered area for you to use during the race weekend. 

So, whether you are looking for a comfortable lounge area, a place to host team meetings or a temporary workspace to keep your team on top of their game throughout the team event, you can trust a race awning from us to offer you protection from the elements and offer flexibility. 

Benefits of using motorsport awning specialists

While you may be able to find standard motorsport awnings, you can take your team event experience and performance to a whole new level by using motorsport awning specialists who can create bespoke awnings tailored to your needs. But what are the benefits of using motorsports awning specialists? Here are some of the advantages of using the expert motorsport awning specialists at The Awning Co. 

Branding ready

When heading to a race or team event it is crucial that you have all the right equipment you need to not only perform as best as possible but also to make a good impression. You need to make sure that both your team and your sponsors are portrayed in the best possible way, and what other better way to make a good impression than with custom branding? 

Here at The Awning Co, not only can we create a custom space to fit your requirements, but we can also apply any branding to them as well. Of course, you want to be memorable, and having impressive branding on your awning can really help you stand out from the crowd. 

It isn’t only our awnings that can be personalised with your branding, but also our accessories can be too! If you want sliding doors, PVC panels or double aluminium opening doors then we can also include your branding so that you can maximise your sponsorship opportunities. 

Quick setup

When you arrive at your team event, the last thing you want is to have to spend hours setting up your working environment. You can’t always be sure that you’ll find a permanent pit area at a team event or race, therefore you need to be able to set up and take down your equipment easily when needed. 

Our spectator barriers are the easiest and most effective ways for you to quickly and easily set up your space while also defining your team’s space. Don’t waste time setting up and taking down your equipment instead focus on maximising your performance. 

High-quality awnings

Of course, it is important that you find the right panel van conversions and accessories to ensure that your team is fully prepared for a team event. And you also need to make sure that you go for a reliable provider with high-quality products, such as The Awning Company. Not only do we offer durable and functional awnings, but they’re available in a range of designs, including the popular windout awning. You can rely on our attention to detail and commitment to making the perfect awnings for your team’s needs to ensure you have the best race weekend experience.
