Driving Success at Bridgwater & Taunton College

Oakmont have committed to a year’s sponsorship of the Bridgwater & Taunton College Motorsport team, to support their efforts to win the BRSCC OSS Championship for a fourth year and develop a superior racing car.

The Automotive Engineering Motorsport course is only funded partially by the college, so the remainder must be raised by the students working on customer race cars and via sponsorship from companies with an interest in the team and the sport.

Andy Kimpton, Managing Director at Oakmont, is a keen motor sport racer and has spent a lot of time working alongside the team at Bridgwater & Taunton team, both on cars and at races.

Josh Smith, the team’s driver and Automotive Engineering Course Leader, said “Oakmont’s support allowed us to convert the car from a standard stick shift gear change to a pneumatic paddle shift set up which has been a super thing to add to the car in terms of reliability, performance and a great teaching aid for the students. Without Oakmont’s support we simply wouldn’t have had it on the car at all.”

Oakmont wish the team luck in their future races and hope they can win the Championship.
