York Racecourse

York is one of the Premier tracks in Europe having recently won the Flat Racecourse of the Year Award and also came out top in The Times newspaper survey of all Britain’s racecourses.

Indigo were contacted in December 2014 by a contractor to install awnings and giant parasols to the Moët & Chandon pavilion at York Racecourse, immediately in front of the winner’s enclosure.
The project’s main contractor requested the installation of eleven giant parasols and five awnings from Indigo in time for the first major race of the year.

In March and April 2015, Indigo installed ten A8 Giant Parasols and five awnings branded with the Moët & Chandon logo, and an eleventh Giant Parasol for Veuve Clicquot. Each A8 Giant Parasol measures at 7.5m², providing plenty of shade against all weather conditions.

The installations were completed successfully, ultimately attracting attention from other racecourses and leading to referrals of a similar nature.

“We were absolutely delighted to have been selected to be a part of this project,” commented Trevor Ruddle, Managing Director of Indigo Shading Ltd. “York is a really high profile racecourse.”

Moët & Chandon is one of the world’s largest expansive champagne producers and prominent champagne house, with a royal warrant to supply champagne to Elizabeth II.
