We are looking for brand sponsorship for Ty click here and join us!
From a very young age Ty loved watching all types of motor sport on TV, his favourite was always F1 which he records and plays over and over again to this day. Ty even enjoys studying the driver and team strategy along with everything that happens behind the scenes at each race.
Although he always wanted to try go-karting, to hopefully follow in his hero’s footsteps, this was not really financially viable for us at the time. When he was 8 yrs old he was of the legal age to try indoor petrol karting. His ability was quickly noticed by track managers and staff who quickly progressed him into the TeamSport cadet training academy. Attending every 2 weeks with a passion to learn race craft and gain experience Ty soon qualified for the National TeamSport Kart champ finals after only 2 months from beginning his journey. Although Competing against much older and by far more experienced youngsters Ty managed to finish and secure 4th place in the country.
Following his popularity, personality and passion Ty rapidly became recognised by the directors of TeamSport as an ambassador constantly uploading track footage to YouTube. The channel was originally created so his grandparent in the North East of England could watch him race. This site quickly became the place to go if you wanted to see the racing lines around tracks never experienced before with over 90K views to date.
With the growing craze of people recognising Ty's talent around the UK’s TeamSport karting tracks he is now invited to every new track “VIP opening night” where he continues to give feedback and share the experience via his social media accounts.
As a family we were astonished at his driving ability and took the joint decision to support Tys Goals and dreams. After lots of deliberation due to finances Ty finally got his dream and owned his own his 1st Go Kart. Being working class family we saved hard to buy Ty his very own 2 stroke kart in back in June 2018 when we first purchased it, Ty wasted no time jumping into a regional championship half way through the season. Although only completing half the rounds against 30 other drivers he finished the championship in 7th place. Not wanting to wait for the next year’s season we managed to pay for a winter season Championship at a local track. Every race weekend was hampered with horrible wet, cold and icy weather but Ty loved every second. After competing in 3 rounds he had won enough points to be crowned Winter Series Champion.
Ty’s dream in karting was to take part in SuperOne but always put himself down as not good enough. Feeling uneasy on the grid when a SuperOne driver sat next to him it was time to prove to himself he could work up to that with the right coaching and backing. Only 2 months before SuperOne 2019 was due to start a conversation over a business dinner talking about Ty’s journey ended up in his 1st financial sponsor PVF Scaffolding. This gave Ty the opportunity to take part in a guest round of SuperOne and be part of this exclusive Championship which has seen the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Lando Norris start their journey. Now getting very close to the Championship 1st round another sponsor heard of Ty’s journey through word of mout and become Ty’s headline sponsors for 2019. Buildbase’s sponsorship secured Ty racing in a brand new class of kart in the UK, MiniROK and the ability to race in all rounds of SuperOne where he finished 10th on points but seasoned 12th place plate from 29 which was an incredible achievement with less than a years karting under the belt.
Subsequently at the last round of the season Buildbase attended the race and announced they would be supporting Ty in 2020. From March to Dec 2019 Ty activated a dormant Twitter account which is getting 200K+ impressions a week and gained international supporters including a billboard chart topping artist. He also regularly updates an Instagram account which is growing in followers on a daily basis. On top of this Ty has also gained some big social media attention from around the world including MsportXtra who invited Ty to be a partner along side F2 and indy car drivers from around the world with over 1m impressions a month. The next steps for Ty will be either Ginetta or Formula 4 so in anticipation we have been attending many British Touring Car Championship rounds where he is instantly recognised sporting his branded race suit and reached over 19m viewers on a regular basis in team garages or on grid walks. He now talks regular with BTCC drivers and teams offering him advice and guidance as they see the full package potential.
Two of the big names on Face Book BTTC chat / fans groups are also promoting Ty’s progress on a monthly basis to thousands of followers along side top name drivers to raise his profile. The journey and recognition has moved rapidly within 9 months and continues to grow traction daily. The next steps need to be supported financially if the ultimate goal to drive in F1 can be achieved.
. The costs involved to train and bring Tys dreams to life are only achievable with your help. If you can assist in anyway we would be most thankful and in return promote your brand. Ty loves working with all his sponsors and supporters to build brand awareness across social media, TV, YouTube and
attending vast amounts of live TV motorsport events sporting his branded race suit.
