Studioworx Ltd a technical training centre and consultancy has announced it is to partner with Oxfordshire based Triple Eight Race Engineering Ltd, for the 2012 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) season in an exciting sponsorship deal.

Triple Eight is the engineering and management team behind the latest name on the BTCC grid: MG KX Momentum Racing. The team will compete using two cars, built on UK car manufacturer MG’s new MG6 platform.

Triple Eight also has two extremely talented drivers; Jason Plato (of TV’s Fifth Gear) and Andy Neate. This formidable partnership of engineering, car and driver talent makes MG KX Momentum Racing a serious contender for the 2012 championship.

Studioworx is providing the team assistance with technology setup and advice, training and support with Computer Aided Design (CAD) and visualisation products, web design, and digital marketing.

Currently, after three races, Jason Plato is leading the driver championship, and Studioworx are hoping that with their expertise and knowledge, Triple Eight will gain a real edge over the competition that will build and sustain the team’s success as the season progresses.

Dan Hyman, Managing Director of Studioworx said: “We are very pleased to be working with Triple Eight on what has to be one of the most exciting seasons of

the BTCC. Triple Eight will be using the Next Generation Touring Car (NGTC) platform this season along with many of the other teams on grid, meaning there are many challenging technological hurdles to overcome.

“Studioworx can do much to contribute to the excellence of Triple Eight’s pedigree in design and engineering. We look forward to building a rewarding partnership with the team going forward, and it is great that a small business like Studioworx can really make a difference to a specialist manufacturer.”

Ian Harrison, Managing Director of Triple Eight Race Engineering and Team Principle of MG KX Momentum Racing said: “Triple Eight is really excited to be working with Studioworx. The products and support services that they are bringing to our BTCC programme will certainly enhance the engineering input that we need to stay at the front in the BTCC.

“The championship is ultra-close, so every small technical advancement that we can apply to the way we operate the race cars will help us stay competitive.”
