Royal Wolf helps keep Melbourne’s Grand Prix on track

Royal Wolf revved into gear for the Formula One 2018 Rolex Grand Prix, as the Sunshine team in Melbourne played a pivotal role in driving Australia’s premier car racing event across the finish line. Each participating racing team utilised the 80 shipping containers Royal Wolf supplied, each 20 foot in size to securely store their precious equipment, essential spare tyres and car parts.

Showcasing the versatility of containers, Formula One transformed six Royal Wolf Outdoor Rooms to create pop up private bars and VIP lounges.  Each portable 20 foot modular unit is decked out with power, lighting and air conditioning and features timber flooring, superior insulation and glass sliding doors making them an essential part of any event or festival. Alicia McPhilips, Sales Executive, Royal Wolf said the company was uniquely placed to deliver the ultimate solution to meet the level of prestige this event carries.

“As the Formula One is televised globally, the storage containers needed to look aesthetically good so when they were caught on the aerial-view camera, they all appeared the same. We delivered the best quality containers, all the same colour”. The Outdoor Room is easily modified and is the latest trend in creative space solutions for event managers to customise into anything from pop-up shops, cafes, bars to activation spaces. The container has really come into vogue across this market and worked perfectly for spectators at the race.

“This is also one of the busiest times of the year for us with removals and other events in Melbourne, so we were thrilled to be able to coordinate with the other companies involved in bringing the event together to ensure a seamless experience for spectators,” she said. Strong and secure, Royal Wolf containers can be easily modified and transported to venues as a practical and cost effective solution, and in the case of a tight footprint, can be stacked on top of each other.
