Supported by Championship headline partners Tegiwa Imports, a competitor-led sponsorship programme has been created that heralds the introduction of one of the most innovative and valuable national club racing support packages ever.

The ground-breaking initiative will see the Japanese performance specialist fund entry fees for a grid of 34 cars – the maximum track capacity for three of the circuits the championship will be visiting in 2024. Consequently, drivers who have their entry application approved by Tegiwa will pay no race entry fees whatsoever by participating in all rounds of the Championship.

Following a landmark first season of the Racing Hondas Championship in 2023, Time Attack Organisation founder and director Andy Barnes is charged with positivity about the new initiative:

“We are transparent in our obsession to create a fresh and exciting environment for drivers who love to race Hondas. My team and I are motivated to use, in full, our experience, form and integrity as a dynamic, modern and opportunistic creator of attractive championships to push the boundaries and deliver our visions without holding back.

“This initiative by Tegiwa is equally as bold and I welcome such a superb and genuine offer for competitors. It’s as inspiring as it is ground-breaking and we’re all about that.”

Andy goes on to explain that over the years, Club Time Attack has provided the backdrop for other championships to piggyback onto its package and in doing so, it was clear there was good reason for the Club to create its own race offering:

“Last year we switched on our own race championship from nothing to complement our existing successful events package that features the Time Attack and Motorsport UK Drift Pro Championships. We do things how we know they should be – and to be clear, Racing Hondas is all about its competitors. Drivers are able to compete in front of thousands of spectators at meetings that are full of vibrancy and excitement.

“In a new, modern world where we fight for the attention of the public and strive to get people to come to the track rather than watch on screens, we believe our race day menu hits the spot – and to have a full grid of Hondas battling it out completes the tasty nature of what people want to see. It’s not hype; we’re out there doing it now and this deal completes the ingredients that will supercharge our package even further.

“The initiative offered by Tegiwa is gimmick-free, revolutionary and above all, we want to emphasise it has been created with the competitor at heart. We are trusting in Tegiwa’s ability to source, vet and provide the most relevant teams to ensure exciting racing.

“With much affection of the season past, we reflect on a great first year where we attracted drivers who were keen to explore what racing within the Club Time Attack package was like. We now look forward to using that positive momentum and taking things to a whole new level in 2024.”

Director of Tegiwa Imports Luke Sedzikowski is equally excited about the introduction of his company’s ground-breaking, new sponsorship initiative:

“We’ve been partners with the Time Attack Organisation for a number of seasons, supporting our customers and even fielding our own cars, so we know how they run things.

“The success of our partnership inspired us to get onboard with the Racing Hondas Championship from the word go, as we could see it had massive potential. We believe in this Championship and we know it will be the place to be if you want to race a Honda and the introduction of this ground-breaking sponsorship initiative for competitors proves that point.

“There are no catches, gimmicks or hidden charges. The only item a registered driver will have to pay for is their Club Time Attack membership. It’s then just the usual costs of running the car – although our sponsorship package will help them with that too, by offering discounted parts and incentives to keep their running costs in check, none of which is mandatory or exclusive to us. So, everyone’s a winner even before they start!”

Competitors will be invited to apply to Tegiwa for a place on the grid by 30th November by completing the official form. The Tegiwa team will then assess the applications, with competitors advised if they have been successful by January 2024, following which the entry list for the season will be published.
