Published: 3 April 2012 - Rachael Morling
Hansford Sensors has announced its sponsorship of British motor racing driver Tom Ingram who, at 18, already has two championships to his name.
Ingram began his bid for a third consecutive car racing title by taking part in the opening round of the 2012 Ginetta GT Supercup at Brands Hatch over the weekend of 31st March and 1st April, and achieved a second-place finish in the first race.
In three years of racing, Ingram has won both the 2010 Ginetta Junior Championship and the 2011 Ginetta GT Supercup G50 Championship. The latter was won with two rounds to spare and included 10 wins, 18 podiums, 13 fastest laps and 13 pole positions.
Chris Hansford, managing director of the company said: “The media naturally focus on F1 but often overlooks the fact that club and grassroots motorsport is where our new generation of drivers is coming from.”
He continued: “The UK motorsport industry is one of the most developed in the world, with a solid base of manufacturers, a huge wealth of specialised knowledge and employment for thousands of people, plus of course a huge fan base.”
