This weekend see's the 11th race of the 2017 Formula One World Championships.
The race, which will be staged on the Hungaroring circuit on the outskirts of Budapest, has always been considered one of the most demanding by spectators and drivers, due to the extremely hot conditions during the race weekend and the succession of twists and turns with few places for overtaking that test the cars and drivers to the limit. The challenge is further compounded by the circuit’s dusty surrounds and lack of general use throughout the year, which have contributed to the circuit’s notorious reputation following numerous accidents in recent years. Thankfully, most of the mishaps were spectacular but not too serious for the drivers.
For those of you watching make sure to keep an eye out for the Dieci telehandlers that will be working across the site, from aiding in setup right through to recovery of the F1 cars should any problem arise. These machine are provided by Dieci's Hungarian dealer and won't be the first time this year there has been yellow and black power on the F1 calendar.
12 machines (including ten Zeus 37.7s and two Dedalus 30.7s) were sent to Sochi, complete with a new two-tone livery specifically designed for the mission, which was no less spectacular than the multicoloured styling of the Formula 1 cars. During the race there was an unfortunate collision, in the space of a few minutes, the Zeus 37.7 machine positioned in the escape route, at the exit of the corner, hitched up and carried off the two cars, while marshals removed dangerous fragments from the track.
If the Dieci telehandlers are good enough for the F1 are they good enough for you? We certainly think so and you can see more detail on our Dieci machines by visiting our web section by clicking HERE
