Drainage and groundwork materials supplier Rudridge, together with paving supplier Marshalls, have announced that they will both be supporting Chris Crane, the national hot rod racer. The one-year sponsorship deal includes company branding appearing on the racing team’s specialist built chassis, which is a 2 litre, 16 valve Vauxhall Tigra.
This news is the latest in a series of deals that will get his 2018 season off to a successful start. “The whole team are absolutely delighted Rudridge and Marshalls have chosen to offer their support. 2018 is set to be an exciting and exhilarating year competing in races across the country. It’s support from companies, like Rudridge and Marshalls, which makes all the difference to our success – it’s a real boost,” commented Chris.
The civil engineering groundwork material specialist with four branches across the South East in Farnham, Horsham, Brentford, and Gravesend, Rudridge, announced that the company “is pleased to be involved with such a promising prospect in national hot rod racing. We wish Chris and the rest of his team the very best of luck for a successful and positive season.”
Chris’ dad, Andy, who runs Andy Crane Transport in Sandhurst and also manages the teams, added: “We always strive for excellence in everything we do, both as a business and a team. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Rudridge and Marshalls.”
