Milltek Sport signs Tom Onslow-Cole as Brand Ambassador
Having witnessed the talented wheelman's skills first hand during his time in the Milltek supported AmD BTCC Golf, Milltek managing director Phil Millington was keen to retain a relationship with the affable ace - both to promote the brand - and to gain valuable technical feedback and test data during the firm's unparalleled development process. This season, Onslow-Cole will be running under the Ebay motors banner, in a car prepped by the successful West Surrey Racing team. With the team, car and Tom himself all previously proving that they have what it takes to regularly take the podium, expect to see the sparks fly from the moment the lights go out.
'Tom is a wonderful addition to the Milltek team,' explained Millington. 'As well as the more overt benefits like having our branding on Tom's race wear, his in depth technical knowledge and ability to facilitate and expedite our testing programmes will mean that we can bring even better products to market far more quickly. Tom is very exacting with what he expects from a car, and that can only help us to raise the bar with our road and Motorsport ranges.'
Equally enthusiastic, Tom commented, 'I am delighted to be working with Milltek once again. Their engineering impressed me when they supported my BTCC season and it's great to be involved early on in the design process to help develop real driver-focused enhancements. It's going to be a great season.’
Tom opened his season in style at Brands Hatch on the 1st April with a podium, fastest lap and solid 22 point tally. With the next round on the 15th April being at Donington - his favourite track - expect to see a few more!
