Three of team BRIT’s drivers have taken part in a special event hosted by long term sponsor, MRTC.
Motorsports communications specialist, MRTC, which is based in Stanford-on-Soar, provides the team with the essential tech it needs for races. Drivers and pit crew are kitted up with earpieces and helmet communications equipment to make sure they’re race ready each season.
Team BRIT’s drivers are disabled, many are injured military troops, and the team aims to become the first ever all-disabled team to compete in the Le Mans 24 hour race.
On Friday 18th January, driver Martyn Compton and rookies Sean Rose and Bobby Trundley joined MRTC staff at a team building event held at TeamSport in Leicester.
Sean and Martyn delivered a talk about the team and their personal stories before staff took to the track in a kart race. Bobby joined the race, putting the MRTC team to the test with his trophy winning karting expertise, before presenting the prizes to the winning racers.
Managing Director of MRTC Erica Whayman said, “We were delighted that Martyn, Sean and Bobby were able to join us for our karting event and share their experiences with the MRTC team. We have been working with Team Brit for a long time now, so it was also great for everyone to hear about their latest plans for 2019. Bobby was astonishing on the track and pushed our team to their limits! As always, the members of Team Brit are inspirational in their approach to life and work and we all enjoyed spending time in their company.”
Team BRIT Founder and CEO Dave Player said, “We’re incredibly grateful to all of our sponsors. Their help and support keeps us on the race track, and MRTC have been with us for a long time.
“They’re the best at what they do, and their technical kit means we’re equipped to compete equally with other teams on the grid when we race.
“Events like this give us the chance to give something back. I hope the MRTC team enjoyed hearing from our drivers and that Bobby put them to the test when it came to the race!”
