British GT Championship – GT3

Another Podium for Anna Walewska in Round 5 of the British GT!

This weekend marks another podium win for Walero ambassador, British GT race driver and Britcar Champion Anna Walewska after coming 2nd in a GT4 in round five of the Silverstone 500 British GT. This will be Anna’s second podium of season, having achieved a 2nd in Round 1 back in April.

“I am so pleased to finish 2nd this weekend at Silverstone – British GT Championship round 5. Nathan Freke did an amazing job and so did the whole team. I am delighted to be part of Century Motorsport, they all put in so much work and it pays off in great ways. Thanks to everybody who has been helping and supporting. That one was for you, Rory! Can’t wait for round 6, Spa.” – Anna Walewska – Facebook

A huge well done to our leading lady. Spa-Francorchamps will take place on the 8th and 9th of July. Go well, Anna!

Top rookie honours for Lewis Plato after a strong weekend!

Ambassador, Lewis Plato, secured his best qualifying position of the season with a fourth and third-place starting position at Oulton Park in the latest round of the Porsche Carrera Cup GB. Two tough races resulted in a seventh-place finish for race 1 and a fourth-place and highest-placed rookie finish for race 2.

“Despite my best efforts I was unable to maximise my qualifying results on track and had to settle for a seventh and fourth place finish. I’m happy that we have made progress but disappointed that we did not transfer that performance in the race. On saying that, I have learnt so much this weekend and really enjoyed the battle on track so I cannot wait for Croft in two weeks’ time.” – Lewis Plato

A huge well-done from us and good luck to Lewis for the rest of the season!

Ambassador Tom Cave and co-driver James Morgan Claim Victory in the 50th Plains Rally, May 2016.

The seven-stage event held on Saturday 14th May comprised 45 competitive miles, starting in Gartheiniog Forest and finishing in Welshpool, just 10 miles from Tom‘s home town in Aberdyfi; an advantage from the beginning.

The weather was bright and despite stages in North Wales Forests being dry and dusty, poor visibility caused by dust was unlikely to be an issue. The Aberdovey driver led with a strong start and along with co-driver, James Morgan, proceeded to win six of the event’s seven stages, crossing the finish line with a convincing margin of 27-seconds.

“I haven’t enjoyed a rally as much as this for a long time,” said Tom at the finish. “We entered the event to work on set ups and to test the Michelin tyres in competitive conditions – as well as make sure we kept ourselves match fit during the gap between BRC events. In fact, everything went so well, we quickly found ourselves in front and I’m delighted to have provided Spencer Sport with its first overall victory and to have won my home event.” 

Tom continues, “It’s clear from this result that all of us in the team are doing the right things and if we can continue the momentum into the next round of the BRC, then we’ve achieved what we wanted to achieve this weekend. I therefore have to thank the Spencer Sport team for providing me with such a fantastic car. It never missed a beat throughout the rally, and to thank James for his work and support inside the car.”

The team has been on an eight-week gap between the Pirelli Carlisle Rally and the RSAC Scottish Rally and Tom, James and the Spencer Sport team took the decision last week to enter the fourth round of the BTRDA Rally Series. With the weekend’s result, they (and us!) are very pleased they did!

As one of our brand ambassadors, we were thrilled to support Tom during the race. “Thanks to Walero for keeping me cool today #sweaty work.” – @tomcaveman7, instagram.

Its been a busy couple of weeks finalising designs for the Walero Keep Your Cool flame retardant motorsports balaclavas & socks. Manufacture is well underway & they will be with you soon. Sorry it wont be quite in time for the start of the season for some of you, but you wont have to wait too long!

Plenty of you are already wearing our Keep Your Cool base layers in the race seat, on the ski slopes & everything in-between, so you will be glad to know that our balaclavas & socks both contain the same space age technology that helps stop you over-heating. Best of all (especially with regards to your stinky feet!) we also have the same antimicrobial product applied to help keep your feet smelling fresh as roses.
