Pirtek Racing

Pirtek has been a keen supporter and advocate for British motorsport for many years.   It was the primary sponsor of the highly successful Sheffield Tigers speedway team and retains close connections to the team to this day.   The company has also sponsored the NW200 road race.

But it is in the British Touring Car Championship where the synergies between the speed of the vehicles and the speed of Pirtek’s emergency on-site hose repair service have really bloomed.

Under its Pirtek Racing banner, the company is the primary sponsor of 2013 BTCC champion Andrew Jordan; its familiar logo and livery now a familiar sight on the winner’s podium and on ITV4’s coverage of the exhilarating sport.
