WD-40 has agreed a new sponsorship deal with one of Britain’s leading rally talents, Stephen Petch, for the 2015 season. The agreement will see WD-40 support the County Durham based driver throughout the 2015 season as he contests the highly competitive 2015 BTRDA Championship.

Announced at the Autosport International Show at the NEC in Birmingham, the agreement will see WD-40 take over the title sponsorship of Petch’s Ford Fiesta R5 rally car for the entire year.

A seasoned competitor in the BTRDA Rally Championship Petch has continued to mix it with the UK’s best drivers over the last eight years, proving himself as one of the top talents in the UK. After a close battle throughout the 2014 season, Petch will once again be fighting for the top honours this year.

Stephen Petch, said: “It’s amazing to be working with a household brand such as WD-40. We had a great season in 2014 but with the support of WD-40, I am sure that we can push even harder for the title in 2015.

“As a team we are looking forward to working with WD-40 during the 2015 season. We have a great car and a fantastic car livery that is going to stand out in the forests and be one the fans will look out for.”

David Whittome, head of marketing for WD-40 Company, said: “We are extremely delighted to be sponsoring Stephen Petch and becoming a part of a team that will see the WD-40 brand back in UK motorsport. Stephen is a talented driver and I am sure that the 2015 season is going to be very exciting.”
