Keen to support and recognise local sports, having previously sponsored the Huddersfield Giants for a decade, Bond It has announced that it will be the official sponsor of family-run racing Team MPHR Racing from Halifax for the 2022 TCR-UK touring car championship.
MPHR Racing has been racing for many years, starting with Minis, but has now stepped up a gear with its brand new Audi RS3 LMS. Taking the Audi out on the circuits for the first time this year, driver Brad Hutchison is confident and says the new Bond It livery is a real head turner on the track. That’s if you’re quick enough to see it go past: under the bonnet is an impressive 4 cylinder 2.0 TFSI Turbo charged engine that has been fine tuned to offer top class performance and will be a real contender in this year’s competition.
Launched in 2014, the TCR concept was introduced to level-up touring car racing on a global scale. Featuring production saloons powered by 1.75 – 2-litre turbocharged engines, cars are built by manufacturer-approved constructors to comply with carefully controlled technical regulations and FIA homologation.
It has been so successful that there are now more than 600 TCR cars competing in 30 different TCR championships and the sport has a huge following which grows year on year. 2018 saw the introduction of TCR-UK racing which has firmly established itself as a competitive, high-profile national championship that has attracted top teams, talented drivers and more spectators than other race series of a similar status.
Building on the achievements of the past season, 2022 will see TCR UK continue its upwards trajectory to provide even more benefits for teams and drivers, featuring a calendar of events at many of the UK’s leading circuits, greater levels of PR and public exposure, bigger grids and closer racing – and the manufacturer is confident that the Bond It Audi RS3 will be up there with the pack leaders.
Throughout the season, Brad will compete in all rounds of the TCR-UK Series: seven race weekends at various UK circuits including Oulton Park, Donnington & Brands Hatch which normally see 20,000 to 40,000 spectators on race days.
Bond It is one of the UK’s fastest growing manufacturers of sealants, adhesives, bitumens, waterproofing compounds, levelling compounds and building chemicals. For more information, visit: www.bonditgroup.com
