GKR are delighted to announce that they are headline corporate sponsor of racing driver Bobby Thompson.
The sponsorship is part of GKR’s Better Future programme, focusing on helping the construction industry, employees and local communities build a better future.
Bobby is competing in the hotly contested Milltek Sport Volkswagen Racing Cup Championship in the Team Hard VW Golf.
Bobby’s familiar black and orange Golf GTI R Cup race car now sports the GKR Scaffolding livery and logo, as seen on our iconic fleet of trucks.
Motorsport gives us a platform to engage young people and the wider community who are interested in engineering, strategy and innovation.
These skills are associated with motorsport but are also very much a part of attracting talent and creating a better future for the construction industry.
We will be hosting events and activities in association with BT Motorsport and race days to roll into the Better Future programme.
“I am really pleased to add GKR Scaffolding to our team for 2017. My aim for the season is to continually promote the company whilst driving to the best of my ability in the hope of winning this season’s championship. Ultimately, I wish to create a ‘better future’ for both myself and GKR. These guys have given me a fantastic platform to work from and can only see things reaching new heights in the future.”
Neil Rowswell added:
“As a business we know what it takes to go from being a challenger to the leader in our market. Our Better Future programme has enabled us to support talent such as Bobby to help him achieve this too. This year, GKR is focusing on raising the profile of construction amongst young people, whilst investing in our employees and the communities we are part of in the South East. We are very proud to be working with Bobby this season and having him represent our brand.”
We hope the industry will join us and get behind Bobby this season!
