Custom race jackets

Acorn appointed as official sportswear partner for BOSRA

Bosra logo iracing leagueFresh from several seasons success in the 750MC RGB race series Acorn is now heavily involved in another form of motor racing.

A very different form of racing.

We have joined the world  of SIM racing where drivers can pit themselves against each other and against the greatest motor racing circuits of the world without leaving their front rooms.

imagesBOSRA, the British Online Sim Racing Association, organises an online league using the sophisticated iRacing platform.  The league currently has seven teams and lots of highly competitive drivers battling it out in a variety of cup and championship races.  BOSRA also enters a team into the official iRacing race series.

Team Acorn Printing, including our very own Duncan Horlor, is there showing off a beautifully designed livery.  BOSRA was so impressed with the team’s look that they have commissioned Acorn to provide some fantastic race wear and their very own BOSRA online shop.

bosra-racing-jacketBOSRA is keen to welcome beginners into the iRacing experience as well as providing more experienced drivers with a real challenge. So if you have cracked the standard Xbox and PlayStation games you should give them a try.

Acorn provides custom and personalised clothing for a wide variety of clubs, teams and groups.

If you would like your own range of jackets, hoodies, polo shirts, caps and much more then call freephone 0800 0190 552 or email sales@acorn-printing.co.uk.

Wasps Shop POS

Getting a buzz from our work

Following on from our Wasps Shop Signage post back in September Acorn is delighted to report more success in helping the rugby club settle into to its new Coventry home.

The team were busy inside the shop recently installing point of sale promotional material and adding more signage.  It’s a fascinating project for Acorn because it brings together a wide range of the company’s skills in different printing techniques and use of materials.

Custom Social Club Apparel

Supporting the British Antarctic Survey Club

Acorn has set up an online shop so that members of the British Antarctic Survey Club (BASC) can purchase club apparel.

Customised Club Apparel for the BASCThe BASC provides social activities and support to past and present members of the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and its predecessor organisations. The BAS itself is part of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and is dedicated to delivering research in the Polar Regions. BAS works in multi-disciplinary teams on projects investigating topics such as bio-diversity, atmosphere, geology and ecosystems.

The standalone shop, which is part of our T-Shirts UK site, allows the BASC to offer a wide range of products to its members, while reducing costs of administration and stock holding.

The heritage and standing of the club is reflected in the prominence of the club crest on all of the shop items.  Although current members might be wearing specialised garments to cope with the low temperatures at both the North and South Poles, the club shop includes some handy cold weather gear.  In addition to a choice of a fleece, hoodie or sweatshirt, hats and a scarf also make an appearance.

custom social club merchandise

Acorn has a huge range of clothing and promotional items to choose from and the ability to personalise any item with sophisticated printing and embroidery machinery.

750 MC RGB – First update of 2014

Racing Post.  First report of the season.

750-motor-club-logoLast weekend saw the Acorn Millennium Security Spire GTR in its second outing in the 750 MC RGB Championship 2014 season.  

The car is driven by our very own Duncan Horlor and is proving to be a great opportunity to promote our ability to print vehicle graphics, personalise garments and customised race awnings and flags.

We have some lovely photos from the race and Duncan’s race reports, which give you a real sense of how exciting this racing series is.

Race 1

imageWell that was a great days racing. I had a great start to race 1 and got up to 4th and up the side of third place before the gap became too small and we made contact going into the first corner. They span and I took avoiding action, loosing 3 places in the process. At the next corner, I was tapped from behind and caught the slide, but still got good drive out of the corner and on to the back straight. I settled down and concentrated on catching 6th place, who after a few laps I managed to overtake.

5th place was David another Spire GT3 the same as mine, so very similar in performance, but there was a couple of places where I knew I was quicker. He drove a great defensive race for about 8 laps, but with 2 laps to go he made a mistake coming on to the back straight and I managed to pass him before entering Brooklands. Behind David was Alastair who had made great progress, since spinning on lap one, when tapping me. I knew that Al was a fair bit quicker than me, so I just made sure I got a good exit on to the straights and defended the corners. On the last lap with both of them right behind me, I really slowed them down on the entry into luffield, which gave me the chance to get on the power early and cross the line 0.2 seconds ahead of Al and David. 5th place was my best finish so far.

Race 2

image3For race 2, I was again starting 5th but didn’t get such a great start. It was still good enough to hold 5th around the first half of the lap. At the end of the back straight Matt and JC in their GT3’s were trying to give each other enough room, so they could pull away from the pack in doing so JC went onto the marbles (loose bits of rubber) at the outside of the corner and span. As we were all so close, this promoted me to 4th place.

The top 4 then pulled away and after 6 laps or so I had pulled a gap most of the back straight away from 5th and the rest of the pack. I then started to lose pace, the times got slightly better as the fuel level dropped, but not as much as then should have done. The gap back to 5th was closing fast and it was only a matter of time before they caught me, which happened with about 5 laps to go. Again defensive driving where I was slow was needed, but I could still pull a gap out of luffield, down the straight and around copse. Again it came to the last lap with Tony and David both really putting the pressure on, I did the same as race 1, slowing them down into luffield and got a great exit to take the chequered flag ahead of them for 4th place.

So happy to have been up towards the front in the second outing in the new car and to have had my family their to watch what were two great races. That podium is getting closer 🙂
