Aspiring young racer Sam Randon of Ashbourne, competed in his second race weekend of the Renault UK Clio Cup (UKCC) Championship on Sunday 30 July at Snetterton, with the support of Incite Consulting.
Following a debut that saw Sam qualify on the front row, Sam left the Croft circuit with a heavily damaged and struggled to fund this round of the Championship, but with the help of local sponsors, he was able to race and achieved two top ten finishes and a fastest lap that was only beaten by the Championship leaders.
Incite consulting joined the list of local businesses that helped Sam to get on the grid. Commenting on the opportunity to get involved, Incite’s founder Mark Platt comments:
“I’ve worked in motorsport before so knew what to expect, but having met one of the drivers, who was driving with my logo on his car was extremely rewarding. The whole event was fantastic – I was really well looked after and was made to feel part of the team. I’d encourage any business who entertains their customers to get in touch and get involved and am proud to say that Incite Consulting will certainly be supporting the team for the foreseeable future.”
The Renault UK Clio Cup features at Britain’s best-known circuits and its races take place alongside the world-famous Dunlop British Touring Car Championship. Renowned for producing some of the UK’s best up and coming sports car racing drivers, the UKCC is a magnet for aspiring young drivers like Sam Randon.
However, the race at Snetterton is likely to be Sam’s last race unless he can raise further funds, as the budget that he and his father Neil had pieced together is now spent. Commenting on his son’s success so far, Neil says: “Sam has been able to show that he’s on the pace and can compete at the sharp end, which I hope will encourage more local businesses interested in live TV brand exposure or corporate hospitality to get involved in becoming part of a very valuable team, supporting Sam as an ambitious and inspirational young man, in the next chapter of his racing career.”
Sam’s car made it through the race with no damage, so any support funding can go straight into the racing.
