Phone Protection In The Pits

We're petrol heads. No 2 ways about it. That is what we live and breath for. Like most people in today's world, we each have a mobile phone. Most of us (more than 95%) have an iPhone. We use our iPhone to talk with each other around the track and around the pits.

The trouble is, we're usually 100% focused on the race, and not on looking after our phones. Sometimes they get dropped. Sometimes they get driven over! An iPhone dropped into a spinning engine with multiple moving parts, isn't pretty.

So we got all our guys to get the iPhone protection from It is quick, easy and gives us the cover we need while we're full-focused on the race and the build up.
