A huge thank you to all who were at the Xmas party at Woodthorpe this weekend and contributed to our fundraising for TeamsuperK at the winter wonder wheels event. They are well on their way to reacting their target and send their own thanks for the £46.00 raised.

A great rally and nice to meet up with friends again, and thanks to Christina and the other marshalls, and the Pilote players.

Pilote Group acquires Danbury Motorcaravans Ltd

19 October 2017

Pilote Group is continuing its expansion plans and announces the acquisition of Danbury Motorcaravans Ltd.

Based in United Kingdom in Bristol, the company has been founded over 20 years ago by two brothers, Chris and Jason Jones, passionate about cars and the campervan industry. They started the company by importing New Classic VW Beetles for the UK market and started in 1997 to convert the world famous VW T2 imported from Brazil. Danbury brand was created in the 1960s and is one of the original three UK brands which started the whole VW Campervan revolution. They have progressively developed their product range and are now offering a full range of product conversions based on the VW T6, Ford Transit, and still keeping the history of the VW T2 alive, which brought success to Danbury.

With this acquisition Pilote Group intends to continue its active growth and development in the United Kingdom and reinforce its competitive position in the fast-growing small to medium size Campervan Market in Europe. Pilote Group will work closely with the existing team in place to develop the business.
