Big Booty Judy (BBJ) is back for 2017 and ready to rumble!

The RYCO 24•7 and Hose Connections Inc. drag car fondly known as BBJ hit the Martin Michigan race track this past weekend for the first time this season.

Owners and drivers, Dave and Ryan Hill (father and son) are back along with the entire race team to ensure BBJ puts on a great performance at every race she attends during the 2017 season.

“We qualified number 2 out of 40 cars and came in second place for the overall race weekend just missing 1st place by a few thousands of a second. We are excited to work with RYCO 24•7 and help promote their business,” said Ryan Hill. “Fast, reliable service is just as important in the on-site hydraulic hose replacement industry as it is in drag racing, so it’s a fitting partnership.”

Just in case you do not recognize BBJ’s curves, she is based on a 2002 Pontiac Firebird and for those unfamiliar with this iconic American muscle car she is shaped like a wedge with a large rear end…hence the nickname that she is fondly referred to at every race she attends.

While she may resemble the look of a Firebird on the outside, it also has to be said that looks can be deceiving as there is nothing on this car that is original. BBJ is a supercharged, methanol-burning door slammer capable of covering the quarter-mile in six seconds at over 220 mph.

RYCO 24•7 in the “Golden Triangle” Transport project Hamilton Site

The local RYCO 24•7 business, 82C Hose & Fittings, will be carrying out hose assembly and maintenance work on the Hamilton site of a large inland container port. The project will connect Auckland, Hamilton, and Tauranga as part of an initiative to streamline freight throughout the North Island.

As part of this project RYCO 24•7 had the chance to visit one of our biggest customers, Matamata based company “J Swap”, and were lucky enough to witness their new John Deere tractor in action. The tractor is the one of the largest tractors in New Zealand and is a sight to behold.

We look forward to being involved and supporting our customers in this project for the years to come.

RYCO 24•7 Sponsorship: New Zealand Pony Club 2017 Eventing Championships Whangarei.

RYCO 24•7 had a fantastic time sponsoring the NZ Pony Club Championship event, held at the stunning Barge Park in Whangarei.

This was a weekend long event which showcased the top Pony Club riders from throughout New Zealand in a thrilling competition.

All competitors and supporters showed a high level of showmanship and enthusiasm, which was a pleasure to see despite a rainy and cold weekend.

We had a lot of brand exposure including the brilliant RYCO 24•7 gazebo as well as the RYCO 24•7 umbrellas, which were evidently out in full force.

We had great feedback from attendees, with one supporter commenting that they had recognised the logo from the RYCO 24•7 branch in Otorohanga, well done!

It was great to the see the RYCO 24•7 family getting involved and look forward to more RYCO 24•7 community initiatives.
