Andrews Heat for Hire and Chris Ingram are set to continue their association for yet another season after a sponsorship extension was agreed last week.
We are delighted to prolong our involvement with England’s highest ranked driver and are extremely encouraged to have seen both parties flourish since our original deal began in April 2016.
Last year, Chris’ incredible exploits on the continent saw him crowned a double European champion and only last week announced that he will be making his 4WD rally debut at the Rally Azores later this month.
Speaking following the announcement, he said: “I’m really happy to have Andrews Heat for Hire on board with me once again and look forward to seeing our partnership flourish for another season.
“It truly wouldn’t have been possible to compete this year in the top tier of European rallying and with three FIA titles under my belt without the support of Andrews over the past two seasons, and I can’t wait to see what further success 2018 will bring! I’d like to thank everyone at the company for their continued support and have previously enjoyed meeting staff all across the country since our association began.”
Chris will once again be competing alongside co-driver Ross Whittock after they secured the European U27 title in October 2017.
The Rally Azores is the first round of this year’s FIA European Rally Championship, where Chris will be behind the wheel of a new car – a Heat for Hire-branded Skoda Fabia R5 – and prepared by the Toksport World Rally Team.
We can’t wait to see Chris back in action and will be following his every movement on the Portuguese island when the rally begins tomorrow.
The position of our branding, featured prominently on the front of the car, guarantees tremendous exposure to television audiences throughout Europe.
As part of our tie-up with Chris, Andrews will be running a series of free-to-enter competitions for motorsport fanatics after the great response our Race Retro giveaway received. Details of these will be announced in due course, but you can avoid missing out by following our @AndrewsSykes Twitter page.
