We are pleased to announce that Weltch Media will continue to partner leading Legends Car team, Guttercrest Racing, through the 2018 season.
We have been working with the team since the 2012 season, providing a range of public relations, social media, copywriting and training services.
“We have been delighted with the service from Weltch Media, and are very happy to continue for the coming campaign,” said driver, Ben Power, who finished runner-up in the 2017 MRF National Legends Car Championship.
“We’ve gained a lot of really valuable media coverage over the years, which has helped to generate interest and raise the profile of Guttercrest.”
A former rallycross champion, Ben, now 27, switched to Legends Cars in 2009, and has become one of the leading contenders, twice finishing runner-up.
The formula originated on the US oval tracks, and the cars have an American look, being 5/8-scale replicas of classic US models. Guttercrest Racing runs a Ford Coupe 1934 replica, with a 1250cc Yamaha motorcycle engine.
With identical cars and the fastest drivers having to start at the back of the grid, there is said to be more overtaking in a single Legends race than in a whole season of Formula 1.
“We are big fans of motor sport, and it’s great to continue working with Ben and the team,” said Andrew Weltch, senior consultant at Weltch Media and a lifetime motorsport enthusiast. “We’re looking forward to seeing the Weltch Media logo on the #55 car at the tracks and on our screens throughout the season”.
Guttercrest Racing is backed by the family-owned aluminium guttering company Guttercrest, based in Oswestry.
The 2018 UK Legends Car season starts at Oulton Park in Cheshire on 17th March.
