The Yorkshire Wine Rascal likes to combine his love of all things wine with his interests in other fields; most notably motorsport.
Building on a multi-year involvement in the UK motorpsort arena with his former business, The Yorkshire Wine Rascal is proud to sponsor and support two locally-based racing drivers in James Kellett & Adam Croft, and one national race Championship, the Caterham Graduates Racing Club.
James is one of the UK’s most promising young racing drivers. At just 20 years of age, he already boasts 3 national Championships to his name, including the Ginetta GT5 Challenge in 2015, following a hugely successful campaign in the Ginetta Junior Championship the year before.
Now back to contest the 2018 Ginetta GT5 Championship once again with Century Motorsport, on one of the most competitive grids the series has ever seen, James is looking to use this year as a springboard to a career in GT racing.
With two rounds of the 2018 Championship televised live on ITV4 as part of the the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), The Yorkshire Wine Rascal is very much looking forward to seeing his logo adorning James’ car, which is sure to be a front-runner throughout the season.
As a fellow resident at the Parkhill Business Centre in Wetherby, Barry has taken a keen interest in Adam’s racing exploits for several years now. Their association dates back to 2015, when Adam dominated the BRSCC Porsche 924 Championhip to ultimately take top honours with 12 wins and numerous podiums and fastest laps.
Swapping the Porsche for a Caterham in 2017, The Yorkshire Wine Rascal is now the title sponsor of Adam’s Caterham Supersport car in the hugely competitive, 30-car grid of the BARC Caterham Graduates Sigmax Championship.
He also enjoys a commercial partnership with the team who run Adam’s car, CTS Motorsport. With a year of Caterham racing now under his belt, The Yorkshire Wine Rascal is looking forward to seeing Adam right at the sharp end of this series this year, and is very proud to be supporting both Adam and James in their respective racing activities.
In addition to backing two individual drivers, The Yorkshire Wine Rascal is also delighted to be one of the Championship sponsors (in association with CTS Motorsport) of the Caterham Graduates Racing Club (CGRC) for 2018.
Now in it’s 20th year, the CGRC caters for a multitude of Caterham race cars and is home to over 80 current racers, and many more social members.
As part of the sponsorship package, every single one of the race cars in the club will carry The Yorkshire Wine Rascal logo on the front facing section of the rear wings.
In return, club members will benefit from exclusive offers and promotions on our wines throughout the season, all of which will be accessible and possible to order here
We will also be hosting a number of wine tasting events / paddock parties throughout the season, and very much look forward to building lasting relationships with the club members.
