Who we are
In case we haven't already stated, we're northern. Based in Northumberland we are a family run and community lead team. We are looking to extend our family ethics to our potential partners through our sponsorship program. Dedicated to furthering our reach through the world of Motorsport, we are looking to make life long partners to grow with us as we advance.
We take nothing for granted and every opportunity we can gain to further ourselves; we will give everything we can to make it work.
The BRSCC Mazda Championship is one of the largest championships in the UK. Based around the MK1 Mazda MX5; with numbers last season in excess of 60 drivers and cars, it is highly regarded for is tightly packed ,close, clean racing.
We have chosen the BRSCC over other's due to the nature of the events that are created. These events form a village and an atmosphere the likes to which is rarely found among others. Many of the other teams are more than happy to grab a beer and dig in. Even the occasional time someone just needs a push back to the garages, there is always more than enough fellow enthusiasts to help out. The community is more of a family and everybody is bonded by the love of racing.
