Avon Tyres adds name to Formula Ford 1600 Championships

Avon Tyres has put its name to two regional Formula Ford Championships for 2010, which will be known as the Avon Tyres Club Formula Ford Northern Championship and Avon Tyres Club Formula Ford Southern Championship.
Having been the control tyre throughout Formula Ford 1600 racing for many years, the sponsorship of the two Club Championships, organised by the British Racing & Sports Car Club (BRSCC), was a natural progression. "Our tyres are synonymous with Formula Ford so we are delighted to support the marque’s leading entry level championship," said Roger Everson, Sales & Marketing Manager for the Avon Tyres Racing Division.
The BRSCC’s Club Formula Ford Championships have received a double boost with the announcement that influential Formula Ford ‘guru’ James Beckett is joining the championship in the role of overall co-ordinator.
James Beckett commented, “This is a natural progression from working with the BRSCC on the Formula Ford Festival, and I was pleased to be approached by the Club to work with them on their Formula Ford 1600 projects. My passion for Formula Ford has been well documented, and my aim is to further enhance and develop the category through all the BRSCC regions.”
Drew Furlong, BRSCC Competitions Director, added, "It is very encouraging that Avon Tyres has shown great faith in the championship and with James working together with our current regional coordinators, we are very confident that the 2010 season will be a successful one for all concerned.”
