Let’s face it, motorsport is expensive! From a competitors perspective - finding, developing and proving your talent is a cash intensive business. From an enthusiast point of view, the team spirit, excitement, and contact with the behind the scenes action can feel very remote and exclusive unless you're a big ticket sponsor.
So why not do something about it?
...And why not? At Team BTR we want to create opportunities for fans to be part of a team, to get involved and experience the magic, glamour and excitement of motorsport. Joining Team BTR can make you part of a winning team, where you can share in the success and growing career of Ben Tuck. At Team BTR, you can get access to many benefits including team merchandise, special reports, race tickets, exclusive behind the scenes access to the car and team, the chance to meet our other sponsors, prize giveaways, passenger rides and more. And in doing so you will play a critical role in helping to build the successes of Team BTR.
"We provide the access, excitement and results, you contribute to the team spirit and funding to help move us forward - Simple."
Success? How much success?
Ben Tuck is a rising young British racing driver with proven race winning pedigree. He was the 2015 RSF MSA Young Driver of the Year. Since its inception in 2010 this award has been bestowed on drivers that have gone on to be major stars in GT and single seat racing.
Ben is not on the grid just to make up the numbers. After trying a few races in late 2014, he started his full time car racing career in 2015. In his debut full season he took the Mazda MX-5 Championship title battle down to the final race, claiming top points scored and 3rd overall with 3 wins, 6 podiums and 3 fastest laps. In 2016 he took on the fiercely competitive Caterham Supersport Championship. Against drivers with up to 4 years of Caterham racing experience he claimed a championship 6th place with 2 wins, 5 podiums, and 2 fastest laps - one of them a Caterham Supersport lap record. In his first two full years of racing he's reached the podium in a third of all his races, and won 15% of them. And all this driving in two of the UK's most evenly matched and competitively fought single make championships.
Ben has only been racing for 2 years and still faces a steep learning curve. But given his performance and achievements to date, there's every reason to expect even greater success.
Great - but where is all this going?
"The only goal - winning...."
The next goal is to build on our 2016 results and compete for the 2017 Caterham Supersport Championship title driving the same car as 2016 with PT Sportscars (www.ptsportscars.com). The plan is to move up to GT4 racing in 2018 and then onwards to GT3 and LMP racing. As part of Team BTR, you can help to make it happen and be there when it does.
OK - so what do we want?
Simply put - we would like you to be part of our team. Your contribution would be a hugely important part of the funding jigsaw puzzle, and help us to build progress towards the Caterham Supersport Championship title in 2017 and on to National and International GT and LMP championships. Your help would go towards race entry fees, tyres, transport, fuel, damage, insurance and the myriad of other things that need to be taken care of to get to the top of the podium. Not only that, funding can be used to test in GT to make that all important jump to the next level!
Of course, if there is some kind of skill you could help us with (for example, Marketing & PR or social media management) rather than pledging cold hard cash then please get in touch direct!
You scratch our back......
This is not a charity! In return for joining us and being part of the team you can get what the regular race team members often get - news and media updates, teamwear, photo's, the chance to share in our other sponsors products and gifts, the chance to join us at the events, and even the chance to ride in the passenger seat of the race car on a hot lap!
What you get out of Team BTR reflects what you put in. We've put together a range of rewards to suit any budget, so there should be something for everyone. Regardless of your contribution, you'll be a valued member of our team. Check out the rewards packages – there’ll be something there for you!
And even better than that.....
Once we've grown Team BTR to more than 100 members we'll start to do regular giveaways of teamwear, race day tickets, sponsors products and the like. Why should we keep it all to ourselves?!
