Tillotson, one of the oldest manufacturers of carburettors in the world, will be the title sponsor for the 750 Motor Club-run Formula Vee Championship, the Club has announced.
The sponsorship funding will mean that competitors in the single-seater championship, which enjoyed a boost in entry levels in 2012, will benefit from regular tyre draws at each round of the 2013 Tillotson Formula Vee Championship. Two tyres will be won by a competitor at each of the seven double-header events next year, following a similar pattern to that already established in several of the Club’s other championships.
“We are delighted to welcome Tillotson on board as a sponsor to the Formula Vee Championship,” said 750 Motor Club Competition Manager Giles Groombridge. “It is particularly pleasing that its contribution will enable all of our Vee competitors an equal chance of winning a worthwhile prize, rather than just those that are battling at the front of the field.”
“It's a thrill to sponsor the Formula Vee Championship,” Tillotson President Charles Demirjian said. “We are grateful for the opportunity and are excited to work with the 750 Club to make this a great year of racing for everyone.”
The 2013 Tillotson Formula Vee Championship, which will be run over 14 races, begins at Donington Park on 23 March. The Club has held entry fees at the same level as the 2012 season despite increasing circuit hire fees.
