Fleet Support Tour of Britain Cycle Race

The Tour of Britain Cycle Race recently rode through Malvern in Worcestershire where Fleet are based. Malvern Town Council invited Fleet to paint a giant "King of the Mountains" winners jersey on Lower Howsell Playing Fields. The Tour was passing by on Wednesday 10th September. The jersey was 21 metres wide at the bottom and 37 metres top to bottom and about 30 metres from sleeve to sleeve. 

The shape of the shirt was "mapped" with the BeamRider (4 corners of the rectangle), using the  90 degree laser. The wavy lines WERE deliberate to give it a more realistic look! Green Reddispray was used for the polka dots with Q2 being used for the white and Colour XS for the red flashing. The Fleet logo was 6m x 4m and the web address under the Fleet logo was done free hand.
