Online E-Commerce Company âBuyspares.co.ukâ is sponsoring the 2011 UK Mini Challenge Championship.
Online PR News – 04-July-2011 – – The West Midlands-based company, which specialises in replacement parts to repair home and garden appliances, has had an involvement in the realm of motor racing for a number of years.
This year BuySpares made the decision to increase its affiliation with the Mini Challenge, the series Martin Depper was crowned winner of in 2008. 2011 sees his return to the Mini Challenge after enjoying success last year in the British Touring Cars Championships.
Speaking at the Oulton Park international circuit, Martin explained âThe Mini Challenge is a prestigious series in the world of motor racing; it combines ambition and dedication with having fun, which is the perfect mix for a company like BuySpares to represent.
âWeâre gaining pace each time we go out so hopefully weâll do the company proudâ.
Martin came to the Championship as a novice in the Club Class and made rapid progress, stepping up to the S Class and taking championship in his second year in the Cooper S. This season he can be seen racing in the JCW (John Cooper Works) class, which involves, turbo-charged cars.
This seasonâs initial race, which took place at the prestigious Silverstone GP circuit, saw Martin only narrowly missing a podium place, seeing off a close contender in the final lap and being edged into 4th position by only 0.18th second.
His âBuySparesâ-adorned Mini Cooper S has also been immortalised in miniature as a limited-edition Scalextric model.
The 2011 Mini Challenge season is currently at its peak, with the next rounds coming up on July 16th/17th at Brands Hatch.
