TEAM Porter Motorsport have been helped on their way for next season thanks to generous local sponsorship.

Local businessman Steven will be competing in his Vauxhall V6 in the Scottish Sports and Saloons Championship, run by the Scottish Motor Racing Club, against all types of cars, including Lamborghinis and Porches.

But he has been given a great headstart on proceedings courtesy of Monro Auto Electric, from Galashiels; JT Dove, in Hawick; Belmont, Selkirk, and Mobil 1.

The car’s 2.5-litre engine, which Steven hopes will power them to victory, has been supplied and fitted by Courtney Motorsport.

He said: “The competition is for sports cars that are not in a fixed class and they will all be going hell for leather.

“It’s a great mix and very worthwhile, but it’s certainly not for the faint-hearted.”

Team Porter also has a Facebook page with updates on the up and coming season where people can see the team in action and join in discussions on different topics .

Everything kicks off in March for testing.

“Keep an eye on Team Porter Motorsport (Facebook ) for the full calendar, which will be up soon,” added Steven.
