IKO sponsors Motorbase at British Touring Car Championship
Published: 22 March, 2016
IKO is sponsoring the Motorbase Performance team in the 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). The Ford Focus STs, driver uniforms, team trucks and clothing will all be branded with the insulation product IKO enertherm.
Only Formula 1 and America’s NASCAR stock car series have longer histories than the UK’s BTCC. Exclusively for 2-litre cars, the 59th season will visit 10 different tracks in England and Scotland with the official launch at Donnington Park, Leicestershire, on 22 March.
Driver Mat Jackson will be returning to the Motorbase Performance team alongside new signing, 2013 champion and Red Bull Athlete Andrew Jordan. This is Motorbase’s 10th season in the BTCC. The second half of the 2015 season saw Jackson and Motorbase amass an incredible seven independent race wins, four outright wins and four further podiums in just four race weekends.
Andy Williamson, group managing director for IKO said: “Like IKO, the teams who enter the BTCC focus on improving performance every year, with remarkable results. Motorbase examines every aspect – cars, drivers, track and more – of the race to do things you wouldn’t think possible.”
