Team BRIT – the world’s only competitive team of all-disabled racing drivers has moved into its new home based in Sussex.
Having outgrown its HQ in Dunsfold following major expansion, the team has formally opened its new workshop and HQ at Rock Business Park near Pulborough.
The team was set up in 2015 by Dave Player, a former Royal Engineer who established the team as an extension of his charity ‘KartForce’, which helps injured troops with their rehabilitation through karting.
Team BRIT was originally formed with just one car and two drivers, and this season, fielded nine drivers across four championships.
Team BRIT Founder Dave Player said: “It’s fantastic to settle into our new Sussex home. Our new unit looks incredible, and has been fitted to our exact needs thanks to the work of Al, his team, and our fantastic sponsors and supporters who have supplied top of the range equipment. We’re incredibly grateful to partners JCC for supplying our lighting, Bott for providing top quality cabinetry, RS and Coba Europe for suppling flooring and MFX for our signage. Huge thanks also go to Cranleigh Freight for loaning us a trailer to help with our move and Mairon, our neighbours at Rock Business Park who loaned us a forklift to help us move in!
“Having started with just one car in 2015, then outsourcing the running of our cars, before acquiring our own premises in 2018, we’ve grown and grown, and I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved. Looking ahead, we’re continuing to build opportunities for disabled drivers at every level of the support, from rookies who are completely new to racing, to those competing at the highest level.”
