Smarter service vehicle providers and specialists in compact electric vehicles, Carryway, has pledged its support of motorsport’s most inspirational team.
The company, which has its head office in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, has presented the team with a bespoke, fully liveried electric Club Car buggy for use at the team’s races and events.
Team BRIT aims to be the first ever all-disabled team to race in the Le Mans 24 hour. Its drivers are injured military troops and civilian disabled drivers who race on equal terms with able-bodied competitors through their world-leading hand control technology.
The team’s rookies compete in the UK Fun Cup Championship and its seasoned drivers race in GT4 events. This year they will make history by competing in a support race just prior to the annual endurance race at Le Mans. They will race in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival on Saturday 16th June – making them the first ever all-disabled team to race on the iconic circuit.
The Carryway electric buggy, specially designed in Team BRIT branding, was delivered to the team at test session held at Snetterton yesterday, Thursday 7th June. It will join them in Le mans, and will be used to transport crew, equipment and visitors in and around the team’s garage. It will then be used at team races and events throughout the year.
Team BRIT joins an impressive list of Carryway clients, with their vehicles having been driven by world leaders to global sports stars. They supply vehicles to over 170 UK golf clubs and resorts along with various facilities, contractors and venues from a range of industry sectors. Their hire fleet of over 1000 vehicles has been used at events, projects and venues across the UK.
Sarah Black, Managing Director of Carryway, said “At Carryway we are always looking for good causes to support, and when we learned of Team Brit’s requirements we were more than happy to help by supplying them with our custom 4 seat electric buggy. We hope the electric vehicle will be a great help to the team, and wish them all the best in the race season to come”.
CEO and Founder of Team BRIT, Dave Player said, “We were so pleased to receive our Carryway buggy yesterday. The incredible stories of our drivers mean that we receive a great deal of attention everywhere we go, and I’m sure our new Carryway buggy will attract even more interest as we travel around the country and the globe, making history race by race.
“I would like to thank everyone at Carryway for such a fantastic donation – we look forward to showing it to our fans and race spectators throughout the year.”
