AP Racing to sponsor major motorsport industry awards
AP Racing, is to sponsor a prestigious set of motorsport awards.
AP Racing has been announced as the headline sponsor of the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA) Business Excellence Awards, which will take place on Thursday 9th January 2020 at Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre.
The sponsorship recognises AP Racing’s 50-year involvement and commitment to the motorsport sector, which is a significant part of the company’s global business. AP Racing currently supplies high-performance brake and clutch systems to major series including Formula 1, NASCAR and the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). More than 800 Formula 1 Grand Prix winning cars have been fitted with AP Racing brake or clutch systems – or both – which is believed to be more than any other supplier. The company operates an ethos of ‘race to road technology’ whereby the premium design and performance of AP Racing motorsport products is adapted into its brake and clutch systems for the OE and performance upgrade markets.
AP Racing managing director David Hamblin commented: “Our pedigree in motorsport brakes and clutches is unmatched and we remain the preferred partner to many of the world’s leading teams and series. Key to this is a continued commitment to innovation and pushing the boundaries of performance - values that are perfectly aligned with those of the MIA, hence our decision to sponsor their Business Excellence Awards.”
Chris Aylett, CEO of the MIA, added: “We are delighted to welcome AP Racing as the headline sponsor of our 2020 Awards. The company’s heritage and status are unique and, whenever the world’s leading motorsport component suppliers are discussed, AP Racing is always prominent among them.”
