Richardson Racing can today confirm an exciting new title partnership agreement with Comline Auto Parts (Comline) ahead of the 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season.
The partnership marks a significant milestone in the history of the Corby-based team and will see it rebranded as Comline Richardson Racing as it embarks on its third year in Britain’s fastest one-make race series.
Comline’s distinctive branding will feature extensively across all elements of the team’s Carrera Cup GB programme, including on the two new 'Type 992' 911 GT3 Cup cars that will be driven this season by race winner Will Martin and series newcomer Jack Bartholomew.
Will goes into 2022 amongst the main contenders for the championship title having finished in the top five in each of the last two seasons, whilst experienced GT racer Jack is expected to be firmly in contention for top rookie honours at least, as he makes the move up from the Porsche Sprint Challenge.
Comline, which first worked with the Richardson Racing team last season, has established a reputation for being one of Europe’s leading automotive aftermarket parts brands over the last 30 years, having first opened for business back in 1991.
Exclusively supplying motor factor and distributor trade partners with an extensive range of own-brand products, the proudly British company has grown into a multi-national operation with customers across the globe, and will seek to further increase brand awareness through the Porsche programme.
The debut for the new look Comline Richardson Racing team will come at Donington Park in late April.
Gwyn Richardson, Comline Richardson Racing team principal, said:
"We’re thrilled to confirm that Comline Auto Parts will be our new title partner for 2022, and to join forces with such an established automotive brand is fantastic for us as a team as we continue to develop.
"This partnership is a reflection of the huge steps forward we have taken in recent years, and one that I believe will be a huge success both on and off track during the season ahead. The reveal of our new look is just the start and we are all looking forward to getting out on track at Donington Park next month to get our title challenge underway."
Leigh Davies, General Manager - Marketing & Communications Comline Auto Parts, said:
“Everyone at Comline Auto Parts is delighted with the new Comline Richardson Racing partnership and we are buzzing with excitement for the season ahead.
"Seeing our name up in lights alongside a team with the reputation and track record of Richardson Racing is a real thrill for everyone connected with Comline, and I am confident that this partnership will enable us to grow the Comline brand and connect with our customers like never before.”
