For this season the maintenance and protection of our vehicles www.tendapro.it/ and crew during tournaments is also taken care of with a gazebo. We have equipped the team with a large closeable gazebo that will enable the team members of UBM to work on the prototypes and will keep them protected from the weather, whether it’s heavy rainfall or excessive sun.
Also new for the current season is the logistic and warehouse department. In addition to the organization of the team’s tools and equipment at home base, it will handle the essential equipment and logistics on competition days. The team is happy to announce that with its expansion and the three projects it works on, this department highlights the progress the team has made over several years.
The whole team is ready for these challenges and is looking forward to face them to the best of its ability!
