Team BRIT, racing together with dedicated sponsor Giti Tire, won its class at the season-ending Birkett Relay. Team Brit and the fully liveried GT Radial VW Fun Cup bug finished first in Class C, posting 142 laps. The result meant 14th place overall, just two laps off the eventual winners.
Team BRIT has spent a day receiving coaching from key sponsor Giti Tire’s test engineers at leading UK research and development facility, Horiba Mira. The team aims to become the first ever all-disabled team to compete in the Le Mans 24 hour race with its revolutionary use of adaptive technology.
Last year, Giti Tire debuted as sponsor and tyre supplier to the Fun Cup UK, and the tyre maker says it is proud to return for a second year in 2017. In addition to sponsoring the Fun Cup series, this year Giti Tire is also partnering with Team BRIT, a charity set up to inspire veterans with disabilities, PTSD, and mental health issues by demonstrating what can be achieved through motorsports.
