Disabled motorsport racing team now sponsored by Vodafone

Team BRIT turbocharged by new partnership.

Team BRIT, the only competitive all-disabled racing team in the world, is now sponsored by Vodafone. The team supports people with physical and psychological challenges in accessing motorsport.

For example, it has developed the world’s most advanced hand control technology which enables disabled drivers to race against able-bodied competitors. As a result, Team BRIT aims to become the first-ever all-disabled team to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.

Vodafone Business branding was displayed across the team’s McLaren 570S GT4 at its recent race with drivers Bobby Trundley, who is autistic, and Aaron Morgan, who is a paraplegic, competing in the penultimate round of the British GT Championship at Brands Hatch.

The pair, whose helmets and race suits also displayed the Vodafone branding, have made history as the first all-disabled team to have competed in British GT – one of the most hotly contested endurance championships in the UK.

Vodafone engineers in the UK will work with the Team BRIT crew over the winter to optimise connectivity, both trackside and at Team BRIT headquarters, in preparation for the 2023 season.

Bobby Trundley and Aaron Morgan won the 2nd place trophy in their class.

Nick Gliddon, Vodafone’s UK Business Director, said: “I am proud to announce our new partnership with Team BRIT. At Vodafone we champion diversity and inclusion and we are looking forward to working with a team which does just that. The team have had some fantastic results in recent weeks, and we can’t wait to see how they progress.”
