FIA European Top Methanol team, Dave Wilson Racing, are delighted to announce Silverline Tools as Primary Sponsor for the 2011 season.
The announcement marks Wilson’s sixth year as a major partner with Racing Silverline - a prestigious stable that includes the 2010 British Touring Car Champion, Jason Plato.
It will be a busy year for the Silverline-backed team, as Wilson will contest the full FIA European tour as well as the SPRC Championship.
"This is great news for myself and the crew” Wilson commented. “We're really grateful to Silverline Tools for their continued backing. As ever, we'll be doing all we can to give them as much exposure as possible. This will include a full race programme as well as appearing at the 2011 Silverline Power Tool Drag Racing Championship at the Fleet Air Arm Museum in September.
“2010 was a tough year for us, with the car’s full potential not being achieved. We believe that the Winter break has given us time to root out the gremlins and get the car into full racing shape. We're still the quickest and fastest Top Methanol car outside of America, and we head into this new season confident of setting the bar even higher!"
Silverline Director, Darrell Morris said: “Silverline are delighted to confirm our continued partnership with Dave and the team for the coming season. We have a long and proud history with top level motorsport and are proud to be back as primary sponsor. The extensive range of Silverline products fits perfectly with the standards the team require, and we are looking forward to the first round at Santa Pod.”
The first outing for the Dave Wilson Racing / Silverline Drag Racing team will be at the Auto Trader Easter Thunderball, 22nd - 25th April, at Santa Pod Raceway, and Dave and the crew look forward to catching up with fans and friends over that weekend.
