Continued sponsorship keeps Richard on the up and up

Continued sponsorship keeps Richard on the up and up

Monday 25th April 2011

Bradford-based Thorite, the UK's biggest distributor of compressed air products and process systems, is to continue to sponsor its Marketing Manager, Richard Vaughan, as he competes in national Hillclimb Championships during the 2011 season of events.

Richard's Thorite-backed single seat OMS Suzuki powered him to his most successful year ever in motorsport last year, when he contested the 2010 Harewood Speed Hillclimb Championship, gaining 1 third placing, 3 seconds and 1 win.

This year Richard, who lives in Wilsden near Bingley, will be in action in both the Harewood and Northern Speed Championship, which stages events throughout the North and Midlands, thanks to the on-going assistance of main sponsor Thorite, plus CP air tools and SIP compressors. The first event at Harewood takes place on Sunday April 17th and Richard is looking forward to even greater success this year.

Taking time off from preparing his 120mph racing car for its first outing in 2011 Richard said: "Motorsport has been a passion of mine since childhood. Although in my chosen sector of the sport I'm competing against the clock on a twisty and technical uphill track, rather than mixing it with other drivers on a circuit, there's real satisfaction in getting the best performance out of both the car and myself. With two championships to contest this year it will give twice as many people the chance to see the car in its distinctive Thorite branding and I'm delighted that the company has decided to extend its sponsorship."
