Team BRIT, the inspirational team hoping to make history at Le Mans, made a special visit to the Banbury HQ of key sponsor Kärcher.
Global cleaning equipment manufacturer, Kärcher, is a long-term sponsor of the team, which aims to be the first ever all-disabled team to race in the iconic 24-hour endurance race.
On Monday 14th June, team driver Bobby Trundley visited Karcher HQ in Banbury after a stellar performance in his latest race. Two of the team’s cars – the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 and BMW M240i arrived on site early in the morning ready for the special treatment of a Karcher pressure wash after the race weekend.
Twenty-one-year-old Bobby, who was diagnosed with severe autism as a child, accompanied the cars and spoke with Kärcher staff about his incredible race at Oulton Park, which saw him secure a P1 finish alongside teammate Aaron Morgan, for the second race in a row.
Kärcher is a German, family-owned company that operates worldwide and is known for its professional cleaning equipment such as pressure washers, window vacuum cleaners and floor cleaners.
The global brand partnered with Team BRIT for the first time in 2019 and supplies the team with access to a range of equipment to keep its workshop in top shape, along with credit for products and consumables to help achieve its goals in 2021.
The team supports people with physical and psychological challenges in accessing motorsport through its racing academy and has developed the world’s most advanced hand control technology.
James Gordon, Marketing Director at Kärcher GB & Ireland said: “It was great to have team BRIT here with our wider team at our Banbury headquarters. We are proud to support a team that helps people believe that anything is possible and compete at the highest level in their sport. We enjoyed celebrating their success on the track whilst getting the cars back into pristine condition before the next race.”
Team BRIT Commercial Director Mike Scudamore, who also joined the visit said: “It was great to have the chance to meet so many of the Kärcher team, to introduce them to Bobby and crew member Dean, and to show off our fantastic cars.
“The support of our sponsors is crucial in helping us further our work on accessibility in motorsport, and it’s really important for us to show the people involved just what a difference their help is making. We hope to return to the Kärcher HQ again soon and to welcome some of the team trackside.”
