To be the best, trust your instincts: Renault F1 Team chooses Roland DG’s TrueVIS VG2

hen you're one of the best car racing teams in the world, you need the very


That's why Renault F1 Team has chosen Roland DGʼs new TrueVIS VG2, the second-generation eco-solvent print and cut device, to produce its race-leading Grand Prix prints. Renault F1 Team has relied on Roland


TrueVIS for many years, using the reliable and high-quality systems at its Technical Centre in Enstone, Oxfordshire, to produce stickers for its racing cars, livery for its support vehicles, displays for its hospitality areas, and much more. Grand Prix events can attract worldwide audiences of more than 400 million viewers, and sponsorship is as competitive as the races themselves. High-end sponsors demand the highest precision in their brand colours and immediate replacement of any damaged advertising graphics; Renault F1 Team always travels with 30 identical versions of every sticker, totalling around 1,400 stickers for every race.


Roland has now upgraded the award- winning TrueVIS VG Series with over 40 incredible enhancements, allowing Renault F1 Team to push its boundaries for accuracy, reliability and turnaround speeds even further.


Those who have seen the VG2 in action describe it as both ʻbest printer/cutterʼ and ʻbest print device in the industry todayʼ. The printer is designed to meet and exceed the needs of today's most demanding print professionals, and is already proving incredibly popular. Joe McNamara, head of paint and graphics at Renault F1 Team, has praised the extended colour gamut, now with bold orange for vibrant colours, natural skin tones and exceptional colour replication. He said: “One of the first things we noticed was the improvement in the colour matching, because a lot of what we do covers an entire season. It gives us a good opportunity to have a consistent colour.


"It also comes with the new orange swatch which has about a hundred colours in there – yellows and oranges. It really makes our life easy when it comes to matching colours exactly for our corporate sponsors, and also for our own branding on cars, on garages, and on everything we take to races with us." A video featuring Joe and his review of the new TrueVIS VG2 is available to watch now on YouTube. Search ʻTrueVIS VG2-640 takes pole position with Renault F1 Teamʼ to view it. In the video, he notes that the new TR2 inks deliver brilliant bonding and stretching abilities for

vehicle wrapping applications, and their fast-drying time allows his team to print, laminate and ship graphics to Renault F1 Team colleagues across the world on the same day. He adds that the VG2's perf-cut feature is making work ʻmuch easierʼ when producing multiples of the same sticker, while the new media clamp system is ʻa really clever piece of engineeringʼ.


Joe adds: "What's really impressive about this machine is what it can do for the price it's pitched at. To have that colour gamut for that price point is really amazing. I just don't know how Roland does it."
