As you can probably imagine, I spend the majority of my day behind a computer designing and developing websites. In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy watching motorsports and I would love to be able to get involved myself, however, I lack the time, budget and skill to do so. For 4 years now, I have been sponsoring a rising driving star, Rory Butcher. He is from Fife and is currently taking the racing circuit by storm.
Rory is an instructor at Knockhill and has won several awards including the Scottish Young Single Seater Award, Scottish Young Saloon Car Driver of the Year Award as well as making it into Motorsport News Top 50 Drivers to Look Out For. Rory also finished third and fifth in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Pro Championship in 2013 and 2012 respectively (including 5 wins, 2 pole positions and 16 podium finishes) and second in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB Pro Am 1 Championship in 2011.
Rory has joined the expanded Oman Racing Team in a second Aston Martin V12 Vantage which is prepared by Motorbase Performance
"With 34 cars on the grid at Oulton Park, my first event for the Oman Racing Team is going to be a very big deal. It's going to be great fun and I'm really excited about the whole programme.
"There's no better circuit to start the year off. We tested at Oulton in March in the Aston Martin and it makes the circuit feel like a kart track! It is so quick. Heading up Clay Hill into Druids in fifth gear feels very quick. But the Aston handles it so well. It is such a great car. They have done some resurfacing over the winter and at Druids you can feel the extra grip. It's the start of a new challenge for me."
So whilst Intrafusion lead the way in web design and development, we are also proud to be a part of and sponsor one of the most exciting new talents in the world of motorsport.
