Vodafone Business has become the latest major organisation to get behind Team BRIT.
Team BRIT is the only competitive all-disabled racing team in the world and supports people with physical and psychological challenges in accessing motorsport. It has developed the world’s most advanced hand control technology which enables disabled drivers to race against able bodied competitors and aims to become the first ever all-disabled team to race in the Le Mans 24 Hour.
Vodafone Business branding was displayed across the team’s McLaren 570S GT4 at its recent race with drivers Bobby Trundley, who is autistic, and Aaron Morgan, who is a paraplegic, competing in the penultimate round of the British GT Championship at Brands Hatch. The pair, whose helmets and race suits also displayed the Vodafone branding, have made history this year as the first all-disabled team to have competed in British GT – one of the most hotly contested endurance championships in the UK.
It was a fantastic start to the partnership with Bobby and Aaron taking home the 2nd place trophy in their class.
The support from Vodafone Business will enable the team to finish the season strongly, before Vodafone engineers work with the Team BRIT crew over the winter months to optimise connectivity trackside and at Team BRIT HQ in preparation for the 2023 season.
Mike Scudamore, Commercial Director at Team BRIT said: “It’s a huge honour to have such a globally renowned brand supporting our team.
“We can only achieve what we do by having the belief, confidence and help of our partners. Support from Vodafone Business will make a big difference to our progress. Not only are they helping us financially, we’ll also be benefitting from their expertise to enhance our connectivity at our Dunsfold HQ and trackside at our races.
“We’re incredibly excited about the partnership and look forward to sharing our ideas and passion for innovation.”
Nick Gliddon, Vodafone’s UK Business Director said: ‘I am proud to announce our new partnership with Team BRIT. At Vodafone we champion diversity and inclusion and we are looking forward to working with a team who does just that. The team have had some fantastic results in recent weeks, and we can’t wait to see how they progress.”
