Team BRIT rookies get ‘kitted up’ thanks to MRTC

Team BRIT’s latest rookies have been ‘kitted up’ for their racing challenges ahead thanks to team supporter, MRTC.

Team BRIT is a racing team of disabled drivers that is looking to make history by becoming the first ever all-disabled team to race in Le Mans.

James Russell, Jamie Falvey and Ash Hall visited MRTC in Stanford-on-Soar earlier this month where the motorsports specialists fitted each driver for their bespoke, moulded ear pieces.  Each helmet was also fitted with communications equipment including microphone, jack plugs and cables.

The rookies used this essential tech in their first race for the team at Oulton Park on October 14th, followed by the Birkett 6-hour relay – at Silverstone last weekend.

MRTC is a motorsports communications specialist, and has 30 years of experience in working with customers in Formula One, Sportscars, Touring Cars, World Rally Championship and many more series throughout the world.  It is a long-term supporter of Team BRIT and will be providing continued communications support as the team enters GT4 racing next year, the next step on their journey to Le Mans.

Operations Director for MRTC, Erica Whayman said “MRTC are delighted to be involved with Team Brit again this year and to work alongside their ever growing team of inspirational drivers.  We wish them all the best for the 2018 season!”

Team Founder Dave Player said, “The team at MRTC has continually supported us and been extremely influential in providing the kit we need to race at a competitive level.

“They are industry leaders and their expertise and technology has helped us prepare our drivers for serious racing that will take us to Le Mans.

“We are very grateful for their support and look forward to working with them as we grow the team and enter GT racing next year.”
