Trico hoping for more Britcar success with Tockwith Motorsports

Trico is preparing for another Britcar Dunlop Endurance Championshipcampaign, with brand ambassador, Sarah Moore, looking to retain her historic title in the Tockwith Motorsports(TMS) Trico-liveried Ginetta G50.

Sarah was crowned the first-ever female champion in the Britcar series last season and will be returning alongside a new teammate, Moh Ritson, in 2019. Alongside driving duties, Sarah will be mentoring Moh throughout the eight-round series, which begins on 30 March at Silverstone.

It is a formula that proved successful for the original equipment manufacturer of wiper blades and systems in 2018, with 16-year-old Matt Greenwood joining Sarah in clinching the championship. Moh, also 16, will be in safe hand, as he begins his first season in the ranks following his debut in the British Junior Saloon Championship last year.

Trico’s Senior Product and Brand Manager, Sam Robinson, said he was excited at the prospect of another title tilt in 2019, with the new driver pairing taking the wheel of the Trico machine:

“Our partnership with Tockwith Motorsports is one that has gone from strength-to-strength, culminating in the championship win in 2018,” he said. “To have Sarah on-board, a respected and professional driver, is a coup for us, while we are all keen to discover how Moh adapts to his first season of senior motor racing.

“We are confident that the formula of youth and experience, which worked so well for us last year, will conjure up the magic once again. We know it will be a challenge to repeat the success, but, with the winning pedigree of TMS alongside us, I am eager to see the Trico car fighting for victories once again.”

Last year, the Trico Ginetta travelled from circuit-to-circuit in its own transporter, resplendent in the Trico livery, but it was also utilised by TMS to transport its other race cars to and from events throughout the UK and Europe when Britcar rounds were not being hosted, thus promoting the famous 100-year-old brand across the continent. 

Trico also used the transporter and car to great effect at various automotive exhibitions, an arrangement that will continue across 2019. Sarah will also be on-hand to help the company throughout the year, attending exhibitions, trade & customer events and corporate functions.
