Following the news of Mark Blundell’s spectacular return to elite-level motor racing, MB Partners are delighted to announce that HP will be partnering the former Formula One star’s debut campaign in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). The exciting partnership signals the global technology leader's first involvement in the premier form of UK motorsport as they join one of the series’ biggest stories in recent years.
A series predicated on the finest of margins and saturated with innovative technology at every turn, HP will take the primary branding positions on Blundell’s #8 Trade Price Cars Racing car in what promises to be a memorable season of wheel-to-wheel BTCC action.
The global technology company will provide one of the most recognisable brands across the BTCC grid, sharing many synergies with the Championship itself. Constantly pushing the limits and reinventing what is possible, HP's vision is to create technology that makes life better for everyone, everywhere. To invent, and to reinvent. Amazing experiences are one thing that the loyal and passionate BTCC fanbase can expect from what promises to be one of its most exciting seasons in recent memory.
Blundell, the 1992 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, is proud to be flying the HP flag across the 2019 season and is looking forward to many of the exciting plans already in place across the calendar year. Blundell said:
“I am delighted to be working alongside HP across the 2019 BTCC season in what promises to be a year of firsts for us all! Coming into a new series is a difficult challenge at the best of times but I am hoping that my experience coupled with HP’s enthusiasm will make it a really memorable year. HP’s success across the globe has been built upon a desire to reinvent what is possible at every turn, something I will be doing at every opportunity both on and off the track this year!”
Neil MacDonald, UK and Ireland Consumer Director at HP, comments:
“Mark’s return to the elite-level competition has certainly caught attention and HP is delighted to be supporting him and his team this year. The British Touring Car Championship has been a leading spectacle for UK sports fans for over sixty years now and we are looking forward to maximising the opportunities that our new partnership will provide.”
