Milltek Sport is delighted to announce that we are continuing our relationship with long-standing brand ambassador Tom Onslow Cole for the tenth year in a row. Tom has been with Milltek Sport on his journey through various racing classes and teams over the last decade, most recently taking a second consecutive championship in the Pro-Am class of the International GT Open.
This year has seen Tom supporting Milltek Sport at Mission Motorsport’s Troops track day at Silverstone. Having given those affected by military operations passenger rides in our Fiesta St and Tesla Model 3, Tom’s contribution continues in a similar vein this month as he heads to Spa Francorchamps to put the cars through their paces on another of the world’s premier tracks. This time, giving our European competition winner an unforgettable experience. Expect to see plenty of content from the road trip to the legendary track in the Ardennes Forest and the track day itself.
Along with The Milltek Sport Branding adorning Tom’s Race overalls and Helmet, Onslow Cole will continue to support the brand on his social platforms as well as making appearances at events. His invaluable insight will also drive the development of our Performance Exhausts, to have a driver of Tom’s calibre supporting the creation of products is a testament to our joint commitment to quality and integrity.
Upon reflecting on the relationship Tom remarked “Ten years! I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone but also, when I look back, I can’t believe how much we’ve done. Our partnership has developed from branding on the side of a BTCC race car to a place where I now really feel a part of the company and am proud to represent them at the track, at shows and in my everyday life.” Tom has seen the company develop and grow over this period, seeing parallels in his own career "in the past decade, my career has gone from strength-to-strength and it’s undeniable that Milltek Sport has been a leading factor in that. In fact, they invited me to race their Dubai 24 Hour entry in 2013 and this was my first ever experience of endurance racing - I loved it so much it prompted to me push for a switch to GT racing in 2014. They also gave me my first laps of the Nordschleife and even sent me to Australia to represent the brand. Three GT championship titles later and going into our tenth year together we’ve got some really cool plans - I can’t wait to have some of the team at my racing events but, away from the track, we’ve got international shows, road trips, track days, product development and plenty of fleet car fun on the agenda. It’s clear that 2020 is going to be great!”
Milltek Sport would like to thank Tom and his team for their commitment and support as we, together, move into a new era for the industry and motorsport alike.
