Ginsters revved up for British Touring Car Championship challenge


Posted in

Ginsters has joined the British Touring Car Championship grid as the new title partner to Team Toyota GB. To celebrate its 50th anniversary year of baking, Ginsters is embarking upon a landmark tour of the UK, aiming – with the support of the freshly renamed Team Toyota GB with Ginsters –to showcase its range of high-quality, baked pasties served hot to teams and fans.

The 2019 BTCC season will begin at Brands Hatch’s Indy Circuit in Kent on 6/7 April, with all of the high-speed, high-octane, wheel-to-wheel action broadcast live and in high-definition on ITV4.  Cheshire-based Speedworks – reigning two-time Independent Teams’ title-winner – is the operating force behind Team Toyota GB’s first official BTCC Manufacturer entry, with driver Tom Ingram, in more than two decades.

Kieran Hemsworth, Managing Director, Ginsters, said:

“We’re delighted to be bringing a Taste of Cornwall to BTCC fans. We pride ourselves on our authenticity, and therefore it was essential that we partner with a team that shares our core values. In Tom Ingram and Speedworks, we have found our home. They are down-to-earth, honest, committed to their craft and determined to be the best they can be. Partnering one family business with another is such a natural fit.

“The expertise and dedication that the Toyota team has built into designing the new Corolla with Tom and Speedworks – using the height of technology and engineering – perfectly aligns with the skills we employ in crafting distinctive recipes to then bring to the nation on such a large scale.
