Riderwear forum and other news

posted in Uncategorized |

As Leigh is not in today, I thought I would hijack his blog and give you an update from the ecommerce department.

Grand Prix Legends have launched another forum today. Christopher Paul and the M.D. from Spidi, Italy were having dinner recently and the topic of riderwear forums came up in the conversation. He was telling Christopher how he often went on forums to see what people thought of his products and those of his competitors. But, he felt, there wasn’t a good forum on this subject in the UK. Christopher passed this on to me and so today we have launched the new forum at  riderwearforum.com. If biking is your thing swing by and take a look.

Keeping with the biking theme, if you are interested in biking it’s worth knowing we are opening our warehouse doors to the public this Saturday for the 50% off Belstaff sale. Click here for more details - Belstaff Sale

You have probably noticed I have been quiet on the diecast forum as of late (still reading the posts mind)- Lots has been going on in the ecommerce department, here is some of the latest news.

The new website is taking shape and the ecommerce team start beta testing next week to iron out any of the bugs. Once happy I will be tweaking the integration of the new website with our in house systems and then it will be time to throw the switch!

There is a new blog - blog.grandprixlegends.com which allows all the other news going on at Grand Prix Legends to be listed.

In other news, the Oakley mega 33% off sale is coming to an end on the 31st August so if you after a new pair of sunnies make sure you get in quick.

That’s about it for now. Normal service to resume on Tuesday when Leigh gets back.

Have a good bank holiday weekend - which reminds me, don’t forget to use the offer code AUGBHS to get free shipping on in-stock orders ( i.e not pre-orders) over £50 to the UK this weekend when making any purchases.
