Top vehicle wrappers are preparing to showcase their talents in a five-day, event-filled road trip across the UK – the 3M Wrap Tour.

3M has organised the 665-mile trip, which will run from 3 to 7 October, to highlight the best that modern vehicle wrapping has to offer.

Fourteen of the science-based technology company’s Authorised Vehicle Wrappers (AVWs) are scheduled to take part. Each has wrapped a vehicle specially for the occasion.

These include everything from a Ferrari 458 Italia wrapped in a mix of gloss, matte and metallic films to a 1968 MG Roadster Speckled Hen kitted out with a modern twist.

Together, the AVWs will tour the country in these vehicles, setting off from 3M’s UK head office in Bracknell, Berkshire. Along the way, they will stop off at various locations and events.

Among these will be Baltic Square, in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear, where the fleet will form a public exhibition, and Santa Pod Raceway, in Wellingborough, Northampton, where it will go on show during the National Drag Racing Championship Finals. The tour will end at TRAX Silverstone, the UK’s biggest performance car show, where the vehicles will join us on the Fast Car magazine stand.

Further details of these and other stops will be announced during the tour.

Pen Webley, marketing manager for 3M’s Commercial Solutions division, said: “The countdown to the first ever 3M Wrap Tour has begun – and we couldn’t be more excited.

“Our meticulously selected AVWs are among the best vehicle wrappers in the UK, so we can’t wait to show the public what they are capable of when using 3M’s latest products.

“We’ve had a glimpse of some of the vehicles that will be taking part. It’s safe to say they’ll be turning more than a few heads as they travel the country over the five days.”
