WP Group is proud to announce today that they will be continuing their motorsport sponsorship programme by investing in local racing team Lewis Dean Motorsport.
Lewis Dean Motorsport consists of Shaun Fudge and his wife Sarah who have been racing in the Gurston Down Championship at Gurston Down Hill Climb, Broadchalke, Salisbury for the past few seasons having previously achieved 1st in class in their Toyota MR2.
Shaun has been racing for over 30 years and has seen success on ovals, racing hot rods, saloon cars and in karting, and has high hopes for his 2013 season.
Shaun and Sarah have recently purchased a New Age Subaru Impreza 2000 WRX which they will race throughout the 2013 season. The car will be entered in the ‘Over 2000cc Road Going Production Car’ class. The main aim for the coming season is to be first in class at as many meetings as possible, (trophies are awarded for the top three drivers in their respective class at every meeting) thereby collecting as many points as possible towards the Guston Down Championship.
Lewis Dean Motorsport approached WP Group for sponsorship and the WP Group logo is now proudly emblazoned on the side of the Impreza.
WP Motorsport is the exclusive supplier of race compliant fuel to a number of championships including Renault Clio Cup, Super 1 Karting and British F3 and GT. WP have also become involved in sponsoring championships with the Mobil Service Centre network becoming one of the sponsors of British F3 / GT Championship in 2012 - 2014.
WP Operations director Russell Fairchild commented: “WP Group is pleased to be able to give some sponsorship to Shaun and Sarah. WP Motorsport has a long history of involvement in grass-roots local motorsport and are glad to give support where we can.
Shaun added: “Sarah and I are grateful of the confidence shown by sponsoring us. Without sponsorship small independent teams would find it almost impossible to compete.”
WP Motorsport and the whole of WP Group wishes Shaun and Sarah the best of luck for the 2013 season.
Post-race reports and photographs have been promised throughout the 2013 season, WP Motorsport will publish these on the website.
