KINGMAN ROR'S WITH TWP
Clayton Kingman will see out a rollercoaster 2016 by heading to Anglesey Circuit on 12 &13th November 2016 to take part in the Race of Remembrance.
Kingman will join 2015 class winners TWP Racing in their MX5-Parts backed Mazda MX5. He will join Will Earp, Andy Muirhead-Smith and Mission Motorsport beneficiary Gary Dunning as they attempt to win the invitational class of the gruelling endurance event.
The Race of Remembrance in aid of Mission Motorsport is an event that Kingman is familiar with having been due to compete in 2015 only for his budget to fall through last minute. That didn't stop him though and instead of competing on track he cycled solo for the duration of the endurance race raising in excess of £1500.
“I have known the team at TWP Racing for sometime but to say I was surprised when I got the call would be an understatement. I am delighted to join the team to compete alongside some of the most inspiring people I have met, and at such a remarkable and moving event”. TWP Racing are a not for profit organisation who work with Glyndwr University to provide opportunities for their students to leave the class room and learn in a race enviroment.
Team Principle Jon Earp is looking forward to being part of Kingman’s ‘Twitter to track’ story and working with him. “TWP Racing are hugely excited to have Clayton join the team for the Race of Remembrance. The Glyndwr University Students have been working tirelessly to present the car in it's best ever shape in preparation for the 1000km race, now that the workshop work is done all we need now is safe hands to see the car to the finish. Clayton brings both experience and maturity to the team and we hope he will remain a TWP driver for many more races to come.” Earp added “We look forward to hearing Clayton's assessment of the car when he tests it for the first time next Friday at Oulton Park.”
Kingman will be hoping for a strong showing as he looks to put together a full campaign for 2017 ‘Its been another challenging year in 2016, we have been working hard to try and piece together deals for 2017 and I am hoping that a strong showing at RoR will assist in my push for a full campaign next year. I am extremely grateful to TWP Racing for giving me this opportunity and hope that this is just the start of our relationship together”
The opportunity has been made possible following backing from car rally and adventure driving experience company Rico Rally.

“As with everything I do without my incredible sponsors I wouldn't be racing. I am delighted to welcome the Rico Rally team onboard who join my long standing & loyal partners APM Customs, Dick Lovett, Vivo Life, The Racing Lab and Great Rads.
