We’re proud sponsors of Team BRIT, a competitive motor racing team consisting of drivers who are all ex or serving military troops. All their drivers have sustained serious injuries and are disabled. Team BRIT demonstrates that anything is possible if you work hard and have a great support team and the right equipment.
Their project shows military veterans,
disabled people and the world,
that they can achieve goals they never
thought they were capable of achieving.
Team BRIT are a competitive racing team, not a charity, and they race against teams of able-bodied drivers on a totally level playing field — something that no other sport can offer. They aim to make racing history and take a team of injured troops to the world famous Le Mans 24hr endurance race, becoming the first ever all-disabled team to do so. Their drivers have all taken part in karting events through the linked charity, KartForce. This provides the opportunity for them to step up to competitive endurance racing.
How? Team BRIT drivers undertake an intensive driver development programme to hone their driving skills to the level required to compete against experienced drivers. In 2017 they will race in the Fun Cup series. Racing in identical-spec cars, teams take part in endurance races ranging from 4-8 hours. They will also take part in the Spa Francorchamps Race in Belgium in July. In 2018 they will race in the GT4 series, before progressing to GT3, taking them one step away from Le Mans.
Where do Viking Inspection come in?
This is something we're very passionate about.
We were one of the first sponsors to get behind Team BRIT and we couldn’t be prouder. The project came to our attention when Managing Director, Steve Delves, was watching coverage of Formula 1 and saw a short film on the team and what they were trying to achieve. As an RAF veteran himself, he knew Viking Inspection had to get involved.
Team BRIT are able to compete through the funding provided by corporate partnerships. If you have been touched by this project and would like to get involved as we have, we recommend visiting the Team BRIT sponsorship page on their website.
