A number of our members chose to take the chance to go ‘behind the curtain’ at Valet Pro in Newhaven to find out in depth what goes into making high quality, user friendly car detailing products and to see demonstrations of the products in action. Valet Pro have long been a partner of TLF and our Gold Members receive a complimentary kit courtesy of the company but this was an opportunity to see end-to-end how the products are developed, made, packaged and correctly used.
Valet Pro owner Greg Spink (also an Elise S2 owner and TLF member!) was on hand to offer a guided tour of their factory and chemistry labs and explain the care and detail with which a number of products are formulated, tested, enhanced and eventually made, bottles filled and sent out across the world.
Greg said “Just to say I really enjoyed the event myself. Pretty much all my favourite things in one day. Lotus Cars, Driving, Car detailing Products and Burgers.”
After some time in Newhaven it was a short drive to the B Road Hunting Club where Valet Pro’s in-house detailer gave demonstrations of a number of products and we enjoyed the excellent coffee and burgers, compliments of Valet Pro. While the food and drink was on Greg, donations were made to Kent, Surrey, Sussex Air Ambulance and I’m pleased to report that £180 is heading their way.
Thanks to Greg and his team and the B Road Hunting Club for their time and hospitality.
