This year Money4yourMotors.com will be sponsoring Melliosport Academy & three of their drivers at the premier karting event ‘The Kartmasters GP’, which is to be held at the PF International Circuit.
We first sponsored the Melliosport team back in 2015 in The Super One British Championship where the team finished in 2nd place, the 2016 World Championship where they finished in 8th place and 2016 British round of the European championship which they won.
Melliosport is a kart racing team operating from workshops adjacent to the best kart racing facility in the UK, PF International near Grantham, Lincolnshire. Who have been competing in motorsport for now over 40 years, owner Les Latham started kart racing in 1977 with a self-prepared kart, racing at his local track Chasewater.
Our 3 drivers for the event are siblings who live in Chester and are all part of the Melliosport Academy, they are all taking their first steps at this level of racing.
Elinor, the eldest is at Lancaster University studying marketing. Since finishing the current term at university she has been working at the Renault Formula 1 headquarters in Enstone (our web developer Jonathan is very jealous!).
She says, “Having never competed at Kartmasters before I'm hoping for a promising result with the help and support of Melliosport”
Her younger siblings Anna & Richard are attending Castell Alun High School in Hope, Anna is studying Art, Law & Religious Studies, and Richard is studying psychology, product design & Religious Studies.
Managing Director and Co-founder Pat Mooney said: “We have always had a keen interest in the go karting world, we’ve been involved in sponsoring Les and his team for 3 years now, we’re thrilled and excited to be contributing to Melliosport's sponsorship once again this year, and look forward to seeing how Elinor, Anna and Richard get on. Good luck!”
All of us here at Money4yourMotors HQ wish everyone luck, we’re all rooting for you!
