2018 will see Vortice UK join the British rallying calendar, sponsoring S&S rallying team, in a high speed rallying adventure! The S&S rallying team is made up of driver Elliott Stafford and navigator Lewis Sim. Driver Elliott, 22 has been inspired by driving since a young age and will be heavily reliant upon his teammate Lewis, 25 who has the very difficult job of not only navigating but also instructing on where to turn and what lies ahead. The pair who met a year ago at a previous race are both enthusiastic about the rally and excited to gain valuable driving experience.
On June 24th the team will compete in the Red Kite Stages 2018 rally in the Neath Valley, South Wales. The route will include stages that have not been used since Wales Rally GB in 2012 and all the stages will be in NRW forests. The route covers five special stages and covers 45 stage miles in a very compact route, taking in less than 70 road miles and the start will be on hard standing close to Neath town centre.
National Sales Manager Paul Gunner said “I will be attending the race and cheering Elliott and Lewis on! Vortice Italy sponsors the BP Swiss Rally Team so this is a natural extension to our Group sponsorship programme.”
