Pitlane Racewear, a motorsports racewear specialist owned by a serving Flight Sergeant in the Royal Air Force, has become the official kit supplier to Team BRIT.
Pitlane was set up in 2008 by Duncan Masters, a Flight Sergeant based at RAF Brize Norton, who originally wanted to be able to supply high quality kit to karting teams at affordable prices.
He will now be supplying Team BRIT with essential racewear for the 2018 season, which drivers will wear in both the Fun Cup Championship and GT4 racing which begins this year.
Duncan has known team founder Dave Player for many years, and has worked with him since the early days of Dave’s charity, KartForce, which helps injured troops access endurance karting. Pitlane supplies the charity with low cost karting starter packs.
He is a member of the RAF Motorsports Association (RAFMSA) and is responsible for running the Inter Services Karting Championships.
Dave Player said, “When I set up KartForce in 2010, Duncan was one of the first people to contact us to offer support. He helped us raise much needed funds and in 2011 did everything that was needed to ensure we could compete in the Inter Services Karting Championships, making us the first team of injured troops to compete in an official MSA sanctioned karting series.
“This was a huge turning point for the drivers as many began to realise that they had serious racing ability. All the top racing drivers that are injured veterans cut their teeth in Duncan’s kart racing series, competing against teams from across the three Service and he has further supported them through his racewear business.
“Duncan shares our passion for supporting injured troops and creating opportunities for disabled drivers so I am very proud that Pitlane has become an official Team BRIT supplier.”
Duncan said, “Pitlane came into existence ten years ago to provide quality racewear at affordable prices to members of the Armed Forces that compete within the Inter Services Kart Championships. Since meeting Dave I have worked with him for KartForce, and he is now further supporting me through Team Brit by choosing Pitlane Racewear to supply their racewear and team wear. I am looking forward to working with Dave this season and watching the team’s progress.”
