XpertLearning the online learning, talent and performance consultancy based in Dubai has sponsored the up-and-coming F4 Driver, Alex Connor.
In a move to sponsor local sports people at grass roots level in the UAE, XpertLearning will be flying the flag for Alex Connor, a UAE born British driver as he battles to win the most coveted prize at the British F4 Championship this season.
Alex has been chosen by Arden Motorsports to race in the British F4 Championship certified by FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. It is the UK’s premier single-seater series, the only championship open to 15-year-old drivers and the first step on the FIA single-seater pyramid to F1. The British F4 Championship has established itself as the place for junior drivers from around the globe to embark upon their single-seater careers and make their first strides to F1.
Co-Founder of XpertLearning Paul Michael Gledhill said, “We are delighted with the sponsorship deal which allows us to proudly display our logo on not only Alex’s helmet but also on the racing car. I think there are great opportunities for regional companies like us to support local talent in sport and improve their brand equity. “
Always thrilled and excited, let’s hear what Alex had to say, ” It’s a real honour to be racing in such a prestigious championship, especially being based in Dubai. There are 10 Rounds this season, but unfortunately, I was not able to race in the first Round at Brand Hatch, as I was too young by four days!
By the second Round at Donington Park I had turned 15 and was able to race. It was an amazing start to my Rookie Cup championship, with two second place finishes and my first win. The racing was close and very intense, but I really enjoyed it. I can’t wait until the next Round. “
Alex’s next race is at Thruxton in Hampshire on the 17th and 18th May 2019. “Everyone here at XpertLearning wishes him the very best of luck and we look forward to him bringing some of his trophies to the office!” added Paul.
