Motor Racing Legends is proud to announce that Lifeline, industry-leading manufacturers of motorsport safety products, are the new headline sponsor for the Tony Dron Trophy, the popular and well-established series catering for Group 1 and 1½ Historic Touring Cars of the 1970s and early ‘80s.
The Tony Dron Trophy named after the British works driver who died in November 2021 is a long-time bastion of the Motor Racing Legends historic race programme; and as it embarks on its eighth season, support from competitors is as strong as ever.
Races are generally of one-hour duration, featuring a pit stop, and open to one or two drivers.
Jim Morris, CEO of Lifeline, is a regular competitor in the Tony Dron Trophy in his iconic Mk 1 Volkswagen Golf and latterly with a Volkswagen Scirocco.
Jim commented, “Lifeline is delighted to be supporting the Tony Dron Trophy for Group 1 & 1½ Touring cars. This is the era of cars that I grew up with, supporting my father in the BSCC in the late ‘70s and ‘80s.
“This experience ignited the spark that led to a career in motorsport for myself and eventually to the birth of Lifeline. It is entirely fitting that Lifeline should support this exciting era in touring car racing promoted and run so well by Motor Racing Legends”.
