Motorsport team’s performance is a winner for South Yorkshire sponsor


The MD of Rotherham’s Gala Tent is ecstatic about the performance of the motorsport race team he’s sponsoring after its first podium finish after only three races.

Working closely with 2015, GT Cup champion Rob Gaffney of Amigo Motorsport, the team secured second place overall, following seven hours of racing over two days.

Part of Gala Tent based in the Dearne Valley, Gala Performance Motorsport is made up of three directors from the leading motorsports awning and equipment supplier Gala Performance, consisting of Glen Robinson, MD of Gala Graphics, the company’s print business and Gala Tent Director Andrew Scott and MD Mark Thompson.

Mark Thompson, MD of Gala Tent, said, “We’re absolutely thrilled and genuinely surprised with how quickly this great result has come in. If we keep improving as we have been then it can only be a matter of time before we’re on the top step of the podium!”

The team will now go on to compete in the next round of the C1 Challenge, which will be their fourth race in total, taking place at the Snetterton Circuit on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th August.

Glen Robinson said: “I’d like to thank the whole team, the drivers, and the mechanics at Amigo Motorsport, for doing such a great job. Now we’ve got a short break, I look forward to hitting Snetterton in August.”
