British racing driverย Johnny Mowlemย has been announced as a brand ambassador for Walero, the motorsports base layer supplier.

Mowlem, who currently competes in America in the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship with BAR1 Motorsports, will formally launch the partnership this weekend at Watkins Glen.

Johnny Mowlem commented: “I’m delighted to become a brand ambassador for Walero as having tried their fireproof undergarments I’ve been incredibly impressed at how well they appear to regulate my body temperature. 90% of my pro-racing takes place in often stifling hot and humid conditions in the IMSA United Sportscar Championship, and I suffer less with the heat when wearing Walero, which helps my competitiveness and concentration levels in particular towards the end of a long two or three-hour stint.”

Walero is a UK-based company producing the most technologically advanced range of competition base layers. The FIA [8856-200] and SFI [3.3] approved garments are fully fireproof and regulate the body’s temperature in both hot and cold climates, ensuring that the wearer stays comfortable and protected.

“We are proud to announce this partnership with Johnny, who is such a well-respected driver.ย  The USA brings different challenges compared to the UK and Europe, due to the extreme temperatures that we rarely experience in this part of the world. Johnny’s experience will be invaluable in helping us enter this market, as well as helping us test and develop future products in his role as a brand ambassador. We wish him every success for the rest of the season.” – Fiona James, Managing Director, Walero
