Rhino Products become official sponsors of Team BRIT!
Team BRIT is an inspirational organisation, in which all the drivers are disabled, and it aims to become the first ever British all-disabled team to race in the Le Mans 24-hour race. Through its Racing Academy, it supports people with physical and psychological challenges in accessing motorsport.
30-year-old Aaron, a computer specialist from Basingstoke, broke his back at the age of 15 in a motocross accident and was the youngest ever disabled person to achieve a ‘national B’ race licence in 2006. He joined Team BRIT in 2019 and will be racing in the Britcar Championship this year.
Aaron will join fellow driver, Bobby Trundley, racing the team’s Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 in the Endurance Category.
Team BRIT are based at Dunsfold Park in Surrey and use a van for transportation of equipment between races. We are pleased to also be providing the team with a range of our products, to fully equip their vans for race days. As well as this, the Rhino logo will be featured prominently on Aaron’s Aston Martin, race suit and helmet.
Aaron was extremely thankful for the sponsorship from Rhino, saying: “It’s hard to explain just how much the support from Rhino Products means to me. I reached out to them with my story and they couldn’t have been more enthusiastic about backing me, but also my team.”
“Their sponsorship will help me with my own development on the track this year, and in turn, will help us inspire other disabled drivers out there to try what they never thought possible. The kit they are providing for our team’s van will ensure we’re as professional and efficient as we can be when off the track, and it’s this massive team effort from everyone that believes in us that helps us succeed.”
“We are extremely proud to be supporting Aaron and Team BRIT on their racing journey”, commented Steve Egerton, CEO of Rhino Products.
“When Aaron reached out to us, we were instantly inspired by his story and the incredible work from everybody at Team BRIT. Their values of teamwork and pushing boundaries within their field really resonated with our ethos here at Rhino Products, and we are delighted to be supporting Aaron and the rest of Team BRIT throughout the upcoming season.”
