I am not sure I can work out the reasoning behind this, but luxury British motor yacht manufacturer, Fairline Yachts is to sponsor a motor racing driver competing for the British GT Championship.

Fairline has revealed that they are to be the lead sponsor of Rick Parfitt Jnr a racing car driver and rock musician.

His band plays all over the world and like his father who is best known as a singer, songwriter and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Status Quo he has played alongside legends including, Eric Clapton, Robert Plant, Bryan Ferry, Spandau Ballet and Status Quo itself!

Parfitt Jnr began collecting Karting titles in his youth including the Le Mans 24 Du Karting and Dubai 24hr and switched from Karts to cars in and graduated to become British GT4 champion in his debut year. From there he was drafted into the factory Ginetta GT3 Squad and from there moved to race for British GT for Team Parker Bentley in 2016.motor racing driver

For 25 years the British GT Championship has been at the heart of motorsport in the UK and has established itself as the world’s foremost domestic GT series. 161 million households worldwide tune in to watch the racing and, with glamorous supercars racing bumper-to-bumper, ground-shaking noise, breath taking speeds and all the drama of pit stops and driver changeovers, it is clear that this is a spectacular experience not to be missed.

Rick Parfitt Jnr was joined by Russell Currie, the Managing Director of Fairline Yachts, as they unveiled the livery for his British GT Championship Bentley at the exclusive Morton’s Club on Berkley Square in London, famous as the home of the original Bentley Boys.

The striking new race livery was revealed to the crowd of VIPs, sponsors and keen motorsport enthusiasts, and clearly showcased the exciting new partnership between the champion racing driver and the yacht manufacturer.

Russell Currie comments on the sponsorship, saying, “This partnership is a great opportunity for our customers to join us and be part of the action with ‘back stage’ access to the team, drivers and hospitality at each of the events. The team at Fairline Yachts is backing Rick all the way.”
