Glews Team support Team Calder Racing
Glews Parts and Service teams have provided support to race team, TeamCalderRacing who compete in the Dunlop Production Touring Car Trophy. Stewart Calder, who leads the team, and Dominic Joyes, Glews Parts Manager, made contact when Stewart was looking for quality parts for his race prepared Vauxhall Astra VXR.
Dominic said “as a well known Vauxhall Masterfit dealer Stewart came to us looking for parts that were of a very high standard. He is funding this season himself so was looking for a good price. The Glews team were able to help with supplying turbochargers for the car and we struck up a good relationship from there. Technical advice from Steward Laws, Glews Service Manager, helped to improve the performance of the vehicle’s braking system.”
Stewart Calder said “The Production Touring Car Trophy puts a massive strain on these cars and we need reliability. The parts and advice from Glews team has had an immediate impact on our results. We had a great weekend at Donnington Park in April this year. On Saturday we qualified 4th, running in 2nd place until the weather put us in the gravel . On the Sunday we finished 4th in the first race after starting from the back of the grid. In the final race I was in the lead at one point but suffered a cv joint failure.”
Dominic continued “three of the Glews team went to Donnington on 21 April to watch Stewart race and it was a great day. I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in motor sport. We wish Stewart all the best of luck for the rest of the season”
Stewart and his team are looking for sponsorship from individuals and businesses alike so if you are interested in becoming a part of it then visit his website for more details.
