The extensive fleet used to ferry London 2012 Olympic athletes, officials and dignitaries around the country has been returned largely unscathed. The 4,000-strong fleet were driven by 9,000 volunteer drivers and the entire operation was orchestrated over the last month by fleet services manager, John Fryer and his team of 400 staff. Mr Fryer revealed this week that the majority of damage sustained to the fleet included bumps, scrapes and kerbed wheels amid the city traffic. He said: "During the Games vehicles were sent to a BMW service centre for repair, or if necessary taken off fleet and returned to BMW. "The nature of the damage will determine who pays _ we operate to BVLRA standards. Fair wear and tear sits with BMW, insured damage sits with the insurer and LOCOG covers the rest." Throughout the Games Fryer had more than 1,300 drivers on the road at one time, making it one of the most challenging fleet operations the country has seen in many years. However, the hard work that started way back in 2007 appears to have paid off, according to Fryer. "An International Olympic Committee executive board member described the service as the best they've ever had at an Olympics," he said. "Obviously with an operation of the scale and intensity of ours there were challenges, but overall it went extremely well."
