Farnborough resident, and up and coming national hot rod racer, Chris Crane, has bagged the latest in a series of sponsorship deals to get his 2018 season off to a successful start.
Drainage and groundwork materials supplier Rudridge, which has a depot in Farnham, along with paving supplier Marshalls, have both confirmed they will be supporting him in a one-year deal which includes company branding appearing on the racing team’s specialist built chassis – a 2 litre, 16 valve Vauxhall Tigra.
Chris Crane said: “The whole team are absolutely delighted 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, which makes all the difference to our success – it’s a real boost.”
Darren Price, Group Operations Manager at Rudridge, said: “Rudridge is pleased to be involved with such a promising prospect in national hot rod racing. We wish Chris and the rest of his team the very best of luck for a successful and positive season.”
Chris’s dad, 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.”
