A rising Manchester motorcycle star has landed a new sponsorship deal with Selco Builders Warehouse, which he hopes will help him fulfil his dream of competing in the British Superbike Championship.
Hyde’s Adam Gittings has been sponsored by the builders merchant for his first ever appearance in the Thundersport GB series.
The 22-year-old will be backed every step of the way around some of the UK’s most established motor sports venues by Selco, and Gittings will be racing a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R decked out in his new sponsor’s blue and yellow colours.
Gittings, who is supported by his father Jeff, older brother Danny and two friends Simon Halliwell and Paul Errington in The Gitt Racing team, said: “I’m hugely grateful for Selco’s support and it really is a dream come true.
“I was planning to do one or two Thundersport events in 2015 and fund them myself but this means that I will be able to attend every event over the year and give it a really good go.
“I’m extremely grateful for Selco’s support and am determined to perform as well as I possibly can to repay them.”
Selco chief executive, Chris Cunliffe, added: “Motorsport is synonymous with the customers of Selco and always features highly in their list of interests. With Selco also having three branches in the Manchester area and Adam rising from grass roots level and having his eyes set on a big sporting future, it creates a perfect sponsorship profile for us.
“We look forward to following Adam’s fortunes over the coming weeks and months and seeing the Selco colours on his bike flying around some of the most popular tracks in UK motorsport.”
Adam’s first race weekend of the season will be at Brands Hatch on 6th – 8th March.
