Pebley to back the Swindon Speedway Robins for 2014

EXCALIBUR and Pebley Beach will continue to support Swindon Robins as they go in search of 2014 Elite League glory.


(From Swindon Advertiser 22-11-13)

The local sponsors were instrumental in saving the club at the start of September when they stepped in to vastly reduce the £50,000 owed in unpaid rider wages.

And both companies have elected to remain on board for next year with new promoter Pete Toogood - a previous owner and former chairman of the BSPA - helping steer Alun Rossiter's side to financial stability.

Excalibur will once again act as the club's title sponsors, although it has yet to be decided whether or not to bring back the popular purple race suits from last season.

Crucially though, the Robins are relying on loyal supporters to come toBlunsdon and back their local team.

Rossiter said: ""We are indebted to Excalibur and Pebley, the support they have given us is tremendous and it's purely down to them that we're still here.

""They are both heavily involved in the local community and wouldn't let Swindon lose their club.

""Now we're back in control and with the help of Pete (Toogood), we are urging all our supporters, old, new and those who have never tried it, to come along and support us in 2014.

""We can't do it without them and we want them to help us protect this legendary sport.""

Excalibur CEO James Phipps said: ""We've steadied the ship for the past three months, giving the club a firm foundation for the future.

""With Pete's expertise and Rosco's management skills I'm confident that we can take a step back from the running of the club as it's in a much better place.

""To cement our belief in the Robins, Excalibur will continue to be title sponsors for 2014. We are all looking forward to focusing on the racing rather than the drama off-track.""

Pebley Beach, who have supported the club for 13 years, were happy to step in with Excalibur and stop Swindon losing their much-loved club.

Company owner Dom Threlfall said: ""It's fair to say it was a challenging year, we had to take some action otherwise the speedway club would not have survived.

""It's certainly in a much better state now and I look forward to being a supporter again as opposed to being directly involved.""

Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Pebley Beach Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed.
