If you follow our social media channels and/or check in on eg’s news page regularly, you will already know that we are proud to be sponsoring Rick Parfitt Jnr and Seb Morris to drive the duo’s British GT ambitions for their second season for Team Parker Racing.

The pair have their sights firmly set on the British GT Championship title, and are confident that they can win the National Championship, which will get them one step closer to the 24-hour race in Le Mans, France.

More about eg’s sponsorship of Rick Parfitt Jnr and Seb Morris

So, where are the connections between a back office optimisation solutions company and motorsport? Surprisingly, quite a lot more than you may think.

On a tour of McLaren’s Technology Centre in Woking, we learned about Ron Dennis, his style of leadership, and the ‘business’ of Formula 1. The parallels with our own industries were greater than we ever could have imagined.

We will be bringing you a more detailed article about our visit to McLaren very soon, but for us, the sponsorship of Rick Parfitt Jnr and Seb Morris goes way beyond the ‘glitz and glamour’ of motorsport.

It’s an opportunity to showcase teamwork and to learn about managing change in real-time, from great sports people about teamwork, collaboration and the psychology of winning.

eg’s ‘CAN DO’ values are at the core of everything we do – as we mentioned earlier, there are certainly some very interesting parallels between business and motorsport.

C – Customer Focus

A – Agility

N – No-Nonsense

D – Driven by Results

O – One Team

We know that Rick and Seb will give it their all – as always – and as proud sponsors, everyone in the eg team wishes them all the best for this weekend at Oulton Park and for the season that lies ahead!
