Torque Events awarded Bronze Covenant Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS)

Torque Events are delighted to have been awarded the Bronze Award from the Defence Employer Recognition scheme (ERS). The ERS encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver, and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy, and society they serve with their lives.

Torque Events arrange the ultimate luxury, fully escorted, driving events and tours across the UK, Europe and beyond, ensuring unforgettable experiences of the best roads, destinations, and hotels.  Every Torque Events Tour is delivered with military precision, knowledge, and flair, ensuring an exhilarating, captivating, and unforgettable experience.

Forged by Directors Benn Laidler MBE and Steve Shaw MA, FCILT, CMCIPD, who are both ex-serving members of HM Forces, the team have been driving the most scenic parts of Europe since 2012, through the legendary Rally for Heroes events raising much needed funds for SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.  Benn and Steve are both fully certified petrol heads with a passion for anything with wheels and to top it off, a thirst for adventure.

Steve Shaw, Director of Torque Events said:

“We have pledged to support the armed forces community through our charity event A Driving Force, have signed the Armed Forces Covenant, we are without doubt armed forces-friendly and are open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.”

Not only do Torque Events organise their own tours and their charity event (A Driving Force for SSAFA), but they also organise bespoke tours and events for car clubs and groups, offering members a fantastic experience with their vehicles.

If you are a car club that has an idea and a rough budget for a tour or event whether in Europe or the UK, get in touch and let the team work their Torque magic!
