Traxion logos will adorn the cars run by Together, We Progress Racing throughout the remainder of the 2021 racing season and into 2022 – supporting the non-for-profit organisation based on the main Wrexham Glyndŵr University campus.
The team runs a race-prepared Mazda MX-5 in the UK Club Enduro championship with the aim of providing work readiness skills specific to the Motorsport sector for students. Races are between 100 minutes and three hours, and the team secured a podium finish at the recent Brands Hatch round.
You may recognise one of the drivers too – our very own John Munro, who has been successfully competing with the Welsh squad since 2017. When he talks about car setup and handling characteristics during a Traxion.GG video, this is why we know he’s worth listening to!
From the Silverstone round on 8th August, a giant pink Traxion ‘X’ will adorn the roof of the car as we further demonstrate the link between virtual racing and motorsport through John’s TWP Racing exploits. With only two rounds of the 2021 season remaining, a full livery will be implemented in 2022.
“We are absolutely delighted at the opportunity to work with Traxion.GG,” explained Team Principal, Jon Earp.
“This partnership is so much more than simply sponsorship and forms a neat synergy of gamer, racer and educator which can only be good for all. In terms of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) this is the ultimate combination and I’ve no doubt the cross-pollination will be beneficial to all parties, the gamer and student alike!”
John, meanwhile, will be able to deliver unique insight into his sim racing exploits and pass those on to you, the Traxion.GG community – something unique in this arena.
For now, we’re all cheering on the plucky MX-5 for the next race, but for the long-term success of the racing team, students and our very own content, trust us when we say this is exciting!
