Racing Ahead

Into 2023, and our third season of competing in the Legends Cars Championship is quickly upon us!

We made good progress in our first season although this was somewhat affected by the COVID lockdowns. We completed year two’s Championship’s rounds with a respectable 7th position overall, out of a close to forty car grid we were pleased to have met our season target.

Now, as part of our three-year plan, we need to be stepping up onto the podium. We’ve had fantastic support throughout with many of our clients and their colleagues attending the events, visiting us in the pits and generally giving their support.

Charlie tells us what the New Year has in store for Team Pristine:

“Well there are some big changes in store, the governing body have split the Championship in two and Team Pristine will be running in both!”. “In one Championship we are supporting the Trucks and in the other we are the support formula for the British Touring Car championship. The latter is covered by ITV and will put us in front of a terrestrial television audience! I can’t wait to get back behind the wheel”.

Our first foray into motorsport saw us providing small amounts of sponsorship support to individual amateur racing drivers who in turn ran the Pristine logo on their race cars. The interest generated was unprecedented, so in 2013 we decided to take it up a level and the Pristine Race Team was born.

Our entry level was the Mighty Mini Championship and in our second season, 2014, we finished a credible 2nd overall in the Championship. Everyone loves a classic Mini, so although it was time to move forward we decide to stick with the British Icon and entered the Mini Seven Championship, incidentally the longest running one make series in British motorsport.

Making good progress in each season, our chosen Driver Charlie Budd took it right to the top step of the podium in our third year, winning the fiercely contested Seven Championship outright in 2017 in a terrific last round decider. In this winning season Charlie only finished once off of the podium and recorded the most pole positions. At the end of 2018 we parted company with the much loved Minis.


The Mini race cars were and still are a regular feature at many client Health and Safety events, to which we included our very popular “Wheel change Challenge”.

Having first had a refresher on the Pristine Manual Handling Principles, contenders were timed changing the race car wheel, however unlike Formula 1 they were deducted points if they used incorrect technique.

A great fun event with a prize for the winner, it produces genuine interest and creates a platform to discuss the importance of using the correct Pristine Manual Handling technique.


F1 and Touring Car have always received generous TV coverage and this was starting to feed down to the lower formulas. 2019 and the Ginetta GT5’s were supporting The BTCC with its regular ITV Sport coverage, so GT5’s it had to be.

A couple of seasons on and there was something missing, something not quite right. Was it the comradery in the pits? Not enough time to have a cup of tea and a chat to our supporters? So perhaps this was a step too far?


Bringing us up to date and a jump forward to a second season in the Legends. So what is a Legend?

Originating in the USA, the 5/8 scale Legend car is based upon the pre-war Ford, Chevy and Dodge bodies and their performance is supplied by a sealed 1250 Yamaha Motorcycle engine.

As they all cross the line for the rolling start the roar of 30+ Yamaha bike engines all hitting the gas at once provides an awesome adrenalin rush!  And the close racing is exciting and provides plenty of overtaking action.

Why not join us at a meeting and see for yourself, come visit us in the pits and meet the team, or follow us on the world wide coverage of Amazon Prime TV.
