When Nico Rosberg or Lewis Hamilton cross the finish line and shake that cold bottle of champagne, no-one sees the 13 mechanics in the pit, or the 42 engineers back at HQ, who contributed to that outstanding drive!

Coach touring is the same. When a driver gets a £100 tip, or the MD gets the praise for the company’s performance, no-one sees the mechanics in the operation team keeping the wheels turning.

This week, Belle Vue Coaches sees two apprentices qualify in our garage, with large pay rises to match. These champions are: George Burke and James McMahon. Two fine young men who came in washing the fleet of vehicles, who now are head honchos in the garage team! George and James are keeping our 70 vehicle fleet moving across the UK and the EU!

And now it also begins with a new apprentice this week. Starting out with us, Ben Dillon-Moores, shows all the potential to be another A Team member! We wish him all the best and we congratulate George and James on their achievements. Teamwork makes the dream work.
