Global cleaning experts, Kärcher, has extended its support of all-disabled Team BRIT, further backing its efforts to drive forward accessibility in motorsport.
Kärcher is a family-owned company that operates worldwide and is known for its professional cleaning equipment such as pressure washers, window vacuum cleaners and floor cleaners.
The brand is a long-term supporter of the team, having first partnered during its entry in a 24-hour endurance at Silverstone in 2015. The brands reconnected in 2019 and now, for the fourth consecutive year, it is providing backing to the team which aims to make history by becoming the first ever all-disabled team to race in the Le Mans 24 hour.
Kärcher supplies the team with access to a range of equipment to keep its Surrey-based workshop in top shape, along with webshop credit for products and consumables to help achieve its goals. This year, it has also increased its financial support as the team ramps up its move towards Le Mans, with its biggest ever contribution.
Having started with just one car and two drivers in 2015, the team now boasts a fleet of four racing cars, plus a fully liveried DAF truck. It also has a VW polo for its racing academy in which disabled drivers are given the chance to experience track days using the team’s world-leading hand control technology.
Last year, the team unveiled its brand new Mclaren 570s GT4 in which autistic racer Bobby Trundley and paraplegic racer Aaron Morgan are competing in the British GT Championship, which kicked off at Oulton Park on the 16th April. Six other drivers will compete in both the British Endurance Championship and the Britcar Trophy.
James Gordon, Marketing Director at Kärcher GB & Ireland said “We’re delighted to be continuing our support for Team BRIT. We’re continually inspired by their passion and determination as well as the support they give to drivers to help them achieve their dreams. We can’t wait to see what they achieve in 2022 and will be cheering them on from Kärcher HQ.”
Mike Scudamore, Commercial Director at Team BRIT said: “We are incredibly privileged and grateful to have had the support of Kärcher for so long. It’s fantastic that they have seen us grow over the past seven years, from a small team with big dreams, to a large organisation with huge impact on our sector.
“Their help and support is helping us move towards our Le Mans goal, but is also allowing us to inspire and motivate others through our work to make motorsport truly inclusive.”
