The team, who last year ran under the Redstone Racing banner, confirmed Airwaves Racing after the Wrigley’s brand continues their support with the team.
The team have also lifted the lid on the 2013 livery, promoting the brand with an eye-catching blue body shell – a change from the previous years’ ‘red devil’ design.
Having previously announced Mat Jackson and Aron Smtih as the drivers to the new in-house built NGTC Ford Focus ST’s, with Liam Griffin also returning to run in the Jack Sear’s trophy – 2013 looks set to be the team’s most competitive year to date.
“We’re absolutely delighted to welcome Airwaves back on board as title sponsor for this season.” said Team Principal David Bartrum. “This year marks the brand’s fourth year with the team and once again shows the strength and appeal of the championship to attract leading brands such as Wrigley.
“We’re also very happy to have Redstone, Truphone and Addison Lee back with us as major sponsors. With the new NGTC cars and increased backing from our sponsors 2013 is gearing up to be our strongest ever challenge on the title, hopefully we can repay them with a BTCC title.”
Wrigley’s Airwaves Brand Manager Tia Shortall also commented; “Airwaves is proud to be title sponsors of the Motorbase team this year. Airwaves is a great fit with Motorsport because it’s more than just gum – its unique flavour kick allows you to take a deep breath and really go for it!”
The 2013 season kicks off at the end of this month, with the official Media Day in a couple of weeks at Donington Park on Thursday 21st March. By Nikki Thompson
