We’re delighted to announce our support for inspirational Porsche racing driver, Nathalie Mcgloin as she prepares to embark on her third season in the Porsche Club GB Championship in 2017.
Driving for the Nathalie McGloin Racing team, Nathalie will pilot her specially adapted Porsche Cayman S and is hoping for her best season ever in 2017. She has already made her mark on the club racing scene with some competitive performances, as well as defied convention by competing as the world’s first female quadriplegic racing driver.
Witham Motorsport, UK official importers of Motul Lubricants supply quality lubricant, oils and greases to the automotive, motorsport, haulage and agricultural industries will provide Nathalie with Motul 300V engine oil, 300V gear box oil and 300V brake fluid for the 2017 season.
Richard Scarbrough, Director of Motorsport at Witham said, “Nathalie is a very impressive and talented racing driver who has had to carve her own path into the motorsport world. As a family run business that has grown from humble beginnings we can entirely empathise with those starting out on their careers. We’re very pleased that we can support Nathalie in leading the way in female and disabled motorsport and we’re really excited to be one of her sponsors for the 2017 season.”
As well as racing in the Porsche Club Championship, Nathalie has recently competed in a 1000km endurance race for the Mission Motorsport charity and plans to race in a 24-hour endurance race at Silverstone in the spring. She is also an inspirational speaker and ambassador for Dare to be Different, an initiative between Susie Wolff and the MSA aimed as inspiring women into motorsport.
Nathalie admits that she loves a challenge but recognises it wouldn’t be possible without the backing of her sponsors. “It’s all about doing what I would have done had I not had the injury,” she explains “When I’ve got my helmet on and I’m lining up on the grid, no-one knows that I’m female or that I have a spinal injury I’m just another driver. I love racing and I want to show others that anything is possible, but without my sponsors I wouldn’t be able to race at all. Good quality oil and fluids in a racing car always improves performance and I am delighted to have Witham Motorsport on board for what I hope will be my best season yet”.
