Accelerating Secondary School Talent with Toby Goodman Racing

Lord Williams's A-Level student Toby Goodman is a kid in a hurry… which is great news for the town as Toby’s successful ten year career has progressed from karting championships into the driving seat of competitive car racing, placing him tipped to win the MINI Challenge 2019 Cooper Pro Series against stiff opposition.

Councillor Ann Midwinter, the current Mayor of Thame, was once a Work Experience Co-ordinator for the school helping teenagers to find employers that suited their talents.

Says Ann, ‘Talent and tenacity go hand in hand for Toby. Anyone that’s dedicated a decade to motor racing before adulthood shows a complete focus for the sport. I hope he can use his education on and off the track to carve a career in the industry.’

Head of Sixth Form and Toby’s teacher, Mr Johnny Hammond, agrees, ‘Winning certainly helps! He is also studying science which will give good insight into vehicle dynamics and handling. All the school support him!’

The only thing holding Toby back is lack of funds and he’s spent the last year trying to reach out to local businesses in order to secure sponsorship.

Excelr8 Motorsport, the professional motorsport team which Toby races for, can offer sponsorship packages all the way up to Prime Time Live TV BTCC (British Touring Car Championship) coverage for companies willing to support him. There are plenty of very affordable and exciting options available for local businesses wishing to take out partner branding or track time with Toby, in order to gain excellent exposure and gain access to a wider audience.

Whatever happens we wish him success for the season ahead!

Run out of Father’s Day gift ideas?

How about a weekend in the new Bentley…

If you love cars and you love driving, then spending a weekend behind the wheel of one of the world’s greatest GTs on some of the UK’s finest roads is a pipedream. It’s Father’s Day, and both significant other and children have given you permission to do just that, for a whole weekend. You jump at the chance of course. So here’s to living the dream…
