The first bespoke conversion of a new Crafter into a Race Home for motorcycle racing has been developed by the Volkswagen Van Centre, Cardiff.
The Volkswagen Crafter Race Home not only offers facilities for transporting up to two motorcycles or a quad bike, but also provides an extremely comfortable and well-appointed base for weekend race meetings with hand-built furniture, leather upholstery, four-berths, double glazed windows throughout, blinds and flyscreens, and a heating system.
The luxurious specification also features an innovative curved kitchen design equipped with a microwave oven, refrigerator and three-burner gas hob with grill. The living quarters also feature a pull-out double bed, another high-level double bed plus a shower and a toilet.
Behind the living accommodation there is a tough and durable garage area with heavy-duty checker-plate flooring and walls and ceiling. There is ample storage space provided for tools, equipment and fuel, plus anchor points to secure the bikes.
`We wanted to develop a durable but luxurious vehicle with a bespoke design built to the highest standard,` said David Pugh-Jones, Managing Director of the Volkswagen Van Centre, Cardiff. `Our Crafter Race Home is the culmination of 12 months detailed research to ensure that all workmanship fully meets Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles` quality standards.`
The conversion was carried out by Tui Motor Caravans in Doncaster using a Crafter long wheelbase high roof panel van with a 2.5-litre 136 PS diesel engine as the base vehicle, and costs £39,995 plus VAT (£46,994 inc VAT).
The Volkswagen Crafter Race Home has already appeared at a number of motorcross events where it attracted keen interest, and it is scheduled to appear at British Enduro Championship meetings all over the UK during the rest of the year.
