Global Telemetrics sponsor SB Race Engineering at this year’s GT Cup Championship

Since 2007 the GT Cup has been continually proven as the championship of choice for discerning racing drivers. This year, the Global Telemetrics team is proudly sponsoring under their SmarTrack Brand, the SB Race Engineering team who will be taking to the track in the incredible Brabham BT62, owned by none other than Global Telemetrics’ co-owner, Paul Bailey!

 

Passionate amateur driver Paul has been paired with professional racing driver Ross Wylie. Together the pair will be looking to take pole position in the GTO class (GTO relates to open specification cars built by very low volume manufacturers). This one-of-a-kind car – designed by the iconic team at Brabham who boast three Formula 1 World Drivers’ Champion wins – is worth in excess of £1million and will use its immense power to weight ratio to reach speeds up to 200mph. This brain bending speeds are all possible thanks to the 5.4-litre, quad-cam, dry-sumped V-8 engine, 700 horsepower and 492 pound-feet of torque that are handled by a six-speed Holinger sequential transmission with pneumatic flappy paddles behind the steering wheel.

This year’s GT Cup will see seven races fill the event calendar, ending at Snetterton in October 2021, whilst the destination for the official GT Cup Championship Awards Night is yet to be announced. With both the GTO group champion and overall GT Cup Champion both up for grabs, Paul and Ross will be driving hard to get the most of the one and only Brabham BT62, which will be adorned with the Group 999 branding throughout the championship.

Talking about the sponsorship Paul Bailey said: “The Brabham GT62 is a true legacy car and one which I am superbly proud to add to my collection. This really is a car built to succeed on the racetrack, and together with Ross we hope to show the GT Cup Championship exactly what the Brabham BT62 is capable of.

“It’s also great to be heading out onto the track with the support of the SmarTrack team and to be proudly displaying our brand to all the other racers and the wider championship audience. In doing so, we hope we can help empower their vehicle security solutions through our market leading tracking and recovery offering.”

Gavin Hennessey, Operations Manager at Global Telemetrics added: “From all of us at Global Telemetrics we wish Paul and Ross the very best of luck for this year’s championship. We’re extremely excited to see them take to the track alongside our corporate branding, and are sure that the Brabham BT62 will be a highlight of the 2021 season.”
