CLAPHAM NORTH MOT RETURNS AS MAZDA MX-5 SUPERCUP SUPPORT SPONSOR FOR 2022
The BRSCC is delighted to announce that, in an extension of its existing support of the championship for another year, Clapham North MOT will continue as the support sponsor for the Mazda MX-5 SuperCup in 2022.
Clapham North MOT was established in 1960 by Ronnie Grant, a racing driver and black cab driver and was named after the area of London in which it’s based. Ronnie went racing in single seaters with his own racing team that comprised future famous F1 personnel Patrick Head and John Barnard among other key members. Ronnie’s racing career continued until 1990 when he decided to stop and focus on the family business, but the Grant racing heritage was extended when son George began racing himself, and has since formed a long-standing association and reputation racing in Mazda MX-5s, mainly through the BRSCC.
George himself has been steadily improving his speed and form in the BRSCC Mazda MX-5 paddock over the last few seasons and now runs a Rob Boston Racing prepared Mk3 in the MX-5 SuperCup, as well as a Tucker Motorsport-prepared Mk1 in the MX-5 Clubman Championship as recently as last year. George is not only a Mazda MX-5 racing aficionado but also showcased his abilities in the Clubsport Trophy and the C1 Racing Club too, and the long-term support he’s provided to both the MX-5 SuperCup and the BRSCC via Clapham North MOT has been nothing short of invaluable.
For the 2022 season, Clapham North MOT will again provide support sponsorship to the MX-5 SuperCup, which will see the Clapham North logo present on the windscreen strips and rear number plates of all competing Mk3 racecars within the championship. Clapham North branding will also be present during live stream coverage of MX-5 SuperCup races throughout the year, as well as on respective promotional materials and social media graphics and a continued presence on the BRSCC website too.
George Grant, Clapham North MOT: “I’m absolutely delighted for Clapham North MOT to be partnering with the BRSCC once again. They are one of the premier motorsport clubs in the UK and we’ve already had plenty of success together, so we’re looking to build on the momentum we’ve gained through the years. Despite the pandemic setting everybody back, our partnership has gone from strength to strength. They’re aiming to energise British motorsport and are doing a fantastic job.”
Mandy Andrew, BRSCC: “Myself, the entire Mazda MX-5 paddock and the BRSCC are all very appreciative and grateful for the level of support that George and Clapham North MOT provides to both the Club and our Mazda championships. To have Clapham North confirmed once again as the support sponsor for our thriving Mazda MX-5 SuperCup in 2022 is a true testament to George’s commitment to helping us ensure that this continues to be one of the most competitive, exciting and popular championships currently run by the BRSCC. We are all very thankful and looking forward to another year of amazing racing which George will be a part of once again in 2022.”
