Trico looks to Britcar Championship campaign

Trico is gearing up for another successful Britcar Dunlop Endurance Championship campaign, with brand ambassador, Sarah Moore looking to retain her historic title in the Tockwith Motorsports (TMS) Trico-liveried Ginetta G50.

Moore was crowned the first-ever female winner of the Britcar Championship last season and will be returning in 2019 with a new team-mate, Moh Ritson, whom she will be mentoring throughout the eight-round series, beginning at the Silverstone International circuit on March 30.

Trico’s Senior Product and Brand Manager, Sam Robinson said: “Our partnership with Tockwith Motorsports is one that has gone from strength-to-strength, culminating in the championship win in 2018. To have Sarah on-board, a respected and professional driver, is a coup for us, while we are all keen to discover how Moh adapts to his first season of senior motor racing.

“We are confident that the formula of youth and experience, which worked so well for us last year, will conjure up the magic once again. We know it will be a challenge to repeat the success, but, with the winning pedigree of TMS alongside us, I am eager to see the Trico car fighting for victories once again.”

Last year, the Trico Ginetta travelled from circuit-to-circuit in its own transporter, resplendent in the Trico livery, but it was also utilised by TMS to transport its other race cars to and from events throughout the UK and Europe, when Brit car rounds were not being hosted, thus promoting the famous 100-year-old brand across the continent.

Trico also used the transporter and car to great effect at various automotive exhibitions throughout 2018, with Auto Trade EXPO, Ireland’s aftermarket exhibition, a particular highlight. 8110 people passed through the doors of the Citywest Exhibition Centre in Dublin last October with hundreds stopping to pose for photos with the GinettaG50, which was positioned outside the main entrance of the Exhibition Centre. Trico was also presented with Best Stand award.

Trico will continue this arrangement in 2019.
