Organisers of the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE can today announce a new partnership with WSC Finance geared towards helping teams and drivers to secure the equipment and funding to go racing.

WSC Finance – which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority – is relatively new to the market, but is run by an experienced team with more than 25 years of experience across the finance industry.

Relationships with a large number of different lenders mean that WSC has access to a wide range of funding options, which makes them the ideal option for a race team that may need to raise capital to purchase race cars, transporters or technical equipment.

The new partnership between WSC and the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE will not only give teams direct access to specialist financial assistance but will also provide drivers with an additional way in which to secure the budget required to go racing.

That is as a result of a special referral system exclusively for Vertu MINI CHALLENGE drivers, further details of which can be provided on request.

The WSC Finance name is already well-known within the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE paddock, with the company having supported Cooper driver Harvey Riby during his rookie season in 2023.

Vertu MINI CHALLENGE series promoter Antony Williams said: “We are delighted to confirm this new partnership between the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE and WSC Finance.

“As people look for different ways to generate funding across the motorsport industry, offering direct access to the knowledge and expertise of the WSC Finance team is something that will be hugely beneficial to our competitors and we look forward to working with them during the season ahead.”

WSC Finance Director Sam Phipps said: “After teaming up with Harvey last year, we are hugely excited to announce we have now joined forces with the Vertu MINI CHALLENGE as a series sponsor for 2024, whilst also continuing to back both Harvey and new Cooper driver Tommy Watson.

“We are very excited to see how the season will pan out this year with new and existing drivers, and will be rolling out some exciting and unique referral packages alongside the series that will assist both drivers and team.

“Watch this space for more exciting announcements to be made!
