A young, up and coming Motocross star has been given a handy boost thanks to sponsorship from UK plastering supplies firm Gypsumtools.
Thomas Simpson, 16, from Barwell, Leicestershire, is no stranger to the winner’s podium and has been successfully competing in Motocross events and meets at competition level from the age of seven.
As a member of the Banbury Motocross Club, his sporting prowess has taken him and his KTM 125cc bike all over the country.
However, competing at this sort of level can cost a lot of money and, as such, Thomas was delighted to hear that he has been granted sponsorship from Leicester-based Gypsumtools for the 2015 season.
Thomas will use the sponsorship money for new tyres, clothing and other essential kit throughout the year.
Gypsumtools Operations Director, Callum Wilson, said: “We pride ourselves on our good relationships with our customers and that level of customer service extends out into the local community too. It’s so important that large firms can be supportive of groups and individuals – and this includes offering help where it’s needed.
“Thomas is a very talented local Motocross rider, who has every chance of going really far in his sport. He is a lovely lad, who deserves every opportunity to succeed. That is why we were very pleased and proud to be able to sponsor him for this season and wish him every success as he competes throughout the year and into the future.
“We’ve been hearing some great things about Thomas’ ability so we can’t wait to see how he gets on!”
