For the third consecutive year, Giti Tire has been participating in the UK Fun Cup series, providing big excitement to small cars.
Utilizing the GitiCompete GTR2 street/circuit racing tire, this unique race lives up to its name with exciting and fun track action of modified Volkswagen Beetles. What the vehicles lack in size, they make up for in speed, durability, and entertainment. In addition, Giti Tire has a partnership with Team BRIT through the race series, a charity set up to inspire veterans with disabilities, PTSD, and mental health issues by demonstrating what can be achieved through motorsports.
The UK Fun Cup series started its 2018 season in April, and will conclude this weekend with its final race for the year in Leicestershire, England. The season has included seven weekends of racing at top race tracks in the United Kingdom, including at the renowned Brands Hatch. As part of the partnership, Giti Tire provides vehicle and race branding - as well as its tires – encouraging a fun and supportive environment in which all can enjoy.
More than just racing, the Fun Cup UK also provides a special opportunity for those in need. For the second year, Giti Tire is partnering with Team BRIT, a charity set up to inspire veterans with disabilities, PTSD, and mental health issues by demonstrating what can be achieved through motorsports. All of Team BRIT’s drivers are ex or serving military personnel who have suffered serious injuries and are disabled. Together with Team BRIT, Giti Tire strives to demonstrate how motorsports can provide inspiration and achievement to everyone, and provide opportunity to disabled veterans who likely never thought racing in a high-profile motorsports competition could be possible.
Together with its other top motorsports events throughout the world, the UK Fun Cup demonstrates the true spirit of Giti Tire – combining high quality competitive racing, a welcoming environment, and a great cause to better the community.
