Whether you are a fan of two or four wheel motorsport, you can’t afford to miss the Team Trimite Brookspeed showcase at Coopers Square shopping centre on Thursday 22 May. Team Trimite Brookspeed will present its new Ducati 1098R British Superbike alongside the mighty British GT Dodge Viper before the team heads off to contest the Bennetts British Superbike Championship at Donington Park and the Avon Tyres British GT Championship at Rockingham, near Corby.
In the two short months since the premier motorsport team last visited the leading Burton-upon-Trent shopping centre the Southampton-based outfit launched its first ever team to compete in the Daily Star Cup within the 2008 Bennetts British Superbike Championship.
Leon Morris (Stockbridge), who is also facing the challenge of his first full season in the UK’s biggest domestic racing championship for the fledgling team, will be making his first visit to Coopers Square and will be available throughout the day to pose for photographs and sign autographs. Already hot property in the premier series, Leon scored third in the Daily Star Cup in what was only his third Bennetts British Superbike round at Oulton Park, on 3-5 May.
Currently lying fourth in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship at the wheel of the Team Trimite Brookspeed Dodge Viper, James Gornall (Peterborough) will make a welcome return to Coopers Square to join Leon in meeting Burton motorsport fans.
If that wasn’t all, shoppers could be in with the chance of winning fantastic race day tickets to either the Bennetts British Superbike rounds at Donington Park or the Avon Tyres British GT Championship rounds at Rockingham for Monday 26 May. Simply pick up a Coopers Square free prize draw entry form in-centre and post it in the competition post box in the Main Square.
Dave Chadfield, Coopers Square Centre Manager, commented: “I have a keen interest in both two and four wheel motorsport so it is with double the excitement that I welcome the newly expanded Team Trimite Brookspeed once again to Coopers Square. Burton has a long history of association with two and four wheel motorsport so I’m sure that many of you will want to come and see some sensational racing machines and enter the double free prize draw to make it a tyre-screeching Bank Holiday Monday to remember.”
