Local motor racing prodigy seeks corporate sponsorship

A talented up-and-coming race car driver is looking to partner with local businesses as he continues to rise in the world of motor racing.

Teddy Wilson, an eighteen-year-old racing prodigy from Rutland, has followed in the footsteps of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button by winning the British Cadet Karting Championship.

Last year he was shortlisted for the Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award and he continues to clock up track time and wins.

For the last two seasons he’s been racing in F4 US as it’s significantly cheaper than racing in the UK. Despite his talent, securing the finance to keep going forward can be difficult. Hamilton himself recently lamented that young racers are facing a much harder battle than in his day.

Competing against peers from rich families means that Teddy has struggled to keep up in terms of financing his racing. He’s turned to education and improved his business skills in a bid to secure funding.

So far, he’s literally knocked on doors on industrial estates, presented to a room full of investors at business festivals and overseas events, and learnt vital management skills.

Now he’s looking to partner with local businesses across Lincolnshire and Yorkshire to put his career in top gear.

Teddy Wilson Racing can create a partnership package tailored to a company’s business goals and budget. Sponsorship can lead to brand exposure and awareness among a whole host of other benefits. Interested businesses should call 07929 453481.
