There's a hot rod with our name on it!

Each year we look out for opportunities to support worthy causes and up-and-coming talent, especially within our community of family, customers and suppliers. 

Throughout 2018, we're delighted to be sponsoring an emerging star in an arena that's particularly close to our hearts – motorsports. We've teamed up with market-leading paving supplier Marshalls to sponsor National Hot Rod racer, Chris Crane, in a move that promises to strengthen his bid to race at the Championships. We first heard about Chris' achievements through his father's company, Andy Crane Transport, one of our valued contractors.

The car – a specialist-built, 2 litre, 16 valve, Vauxhall Tigra – now displays our company branding, and will be racing at fixtures across the UK and Ireland from the 3rd March 2018. Visiting tracks from Aldershot to Tullyroan, the highlight of the calendar will be the World Final Championships in Ipswich in July.

National Hot Rod racing is the British counterpart to America's NASCAR production car racing, and takes place on oval tarmac tracks. While contact isn't allowed, the racing makes for adrenaline-fuelled viewing, as the number of cars on the track ensures each race is packed with drama.

Our Group Operations Manager, Darren Price, commented, "Rudridge is thrilled to be involved with such a promising prospect in National Hot Rod racing. It's an incredible sport which offers enormous entertainment value. We're looking forward to watching Chris race competitively with our logo emblazoned on the side of the car.

Chris has already demonstrated a track-record of success, and is heading for a bright future in the sport. By showcasing his talent, we hope to offer encouragement in his race for the top. We wish him, and the rest of his team, the very best of luck for a successful and positive season." 

Chris said, "The whole team is absolutely delighted that Rudridge and Marshalls have chosen to offer their support. 2018 is set to be an exciting and exhilarating year competing in races across the country. It's support from companies like Rudridge and Marshalls that makes all the difference to our success – it's a real boost."  

Andy, who runs Andy Crane Transport in Sandhurst and manages the team, added, "We always strive for excellence in everything we do, both as a business and a team. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Rudridge and Marshalls."
