Team Trimite Announces 2007 British Gt Championship Campaign

Industrial paints & coatingsTrimite Powders Inc. & Trimite Ltd. have today announced the formation of Team Trimite in partnership with Brookspeed International Motorsport.

Team Trimite will compete in the remaining rounds of this year's Avon Tyres British GT Championship before mounting a full campaign for the 2008 Championship. This new force in British motor sport will launch its Dodge Viper GT race car at the company's head office in Uxbridge, Middlesex on Thursday 12 July. Team Trimite will take to the track for the first time in Rounds 6 and 7 of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship at the historic Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit on 14 and 15 July.

David Roberts, head of the private shareholder group that has recently secured substantial investment in Trimite Limited, says: "We have been evaluating a number of sponsorship opportunities against three principal criteria since the beginning of the year. Our prime goals were to become involved in a championship type event where the playing field is totally level and results are achieved through collaborative efforts and team work. This reflects the way we develop our products, train and support our staff, and work with our customers.

"We also needed a medium that Trimite employees and customers could buy into and become part of. Finally, we needed the right partners. With the Avon Tyres British GT Championship and Brookspeed International Motorsport, we have ticked all the boxes for a successful campaign. Team Trimite will become an integral part of Trimite's business development programme over the next two years."

The British GT Championship is a cornerstone of UK motor sport. Stringent efforts are made to ensure parity between competitors, putting the onus firmly on teams and drivers to work together to obtain the best from the human and technical elements to achieve success. The Championship technical committee examines the performance of all marques taking part, including Dodge, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Lotus, at each round. A system of weight penalties and ride-height adjustments is appliedIndustrial Coatings and Paints to ensure fair and equal competition.

Team Trimite will compete in all nine remaining rounds of the 2007 Avon Tyres British GT Championship. The series will be broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK and on various satellite channels both in the UK and internationally.
