Comline has struck a title partnership agreement with Richardson Racing for the 2022 Porsche Carrera Cup GB season.
Based in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom, Richardson Racing narrowly missed out on team championship honours last season, finishing second overall. In 2022, Comline Richardson Racing will be looking to go one better and kicks-off its quest for this season’s championship at Donington Park on the weekend of the 23 and 24 April on ITV4.
The team will boast two cars in this season’s campaign, with 2021 race winner, Will Martin, and series debutant, Jack Bartholomew, behind the wheel.
Comline Richardson Racing will be running the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 992), described as a faster, more durable and more efficient racer than its predecessors. The four-litre, six-cylinder box engine delivers up to 510hp at 8,400rpm and 470Nm at 6,150rpm.
Comline General Manager – Marketing & Communications, Leigh Davies, said: “Everyone at Comline Auto Parts is thrilled to see the Comline Richardson Racing partnership come to life. The newly wrapped cars, adorned in our distinctive livery, are sure to catch the eye of fans throughout the season and impress customers that we will be hosting at each race weekend.
“Seeing our name in lights and strengthening our relationship with the Richardson Racing team is a thrill for everyone connected with Comline. I am confident that this partnership will enable us to grow the brand and connect with our customers like never before.”
Comline Richardson Racing Team Principal, Gwyn Richardson, added: “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 a coup for us, as we continue to develop.
“This partnership reflects 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.”
