Lincoln motorsport team to print supporters’ faces and brands on race car

A Lincoln company is giving local businesses and fans the opportunity to make their mark in British motorsport by getting their branding or face printed on a racing car.

PP Motorsport, sister company to Lincoln bodywork business Paint Perfect, has graduated into the UK Clio Cup after only three years of racing professionally, a year ahead of schedule.

The team already has an ambitious plan of becoming a multi-car team in 2017 with the eventual goal of entering the British Touring Car Championship.

In preparation for the new season starting at the beginning of April, PP Motorsport are offering local businesses the chance to back the team through the Lincolnshire Business Network.

It will provide sponsors the opportunity to have their branding on the car as well as networking opportunities at exclusive events.

Fans of the sport are also being offered the chance to get involved by sending a 30x30mm sq. photo to be printed onto the forth generation Renault Clio along with entry into a raffle, which could see the winner driving the Michelin Clio Cup Series Car on a track day.
