I am Alexander Rhodes, a racing driver from Leeds, West Yorkshire, and I am currently competing in the 2017 SG Petch Championship in the lightweight class. During the year, I hope to be in the fight for the championship, there are 7 rounds, 2 of which are drop rounds.
Due to lack of funding, I have missed rounds 1 & 2, however in round 3 I finished 15th in race 1, 9th in race 2. I expect to build on this as my pace improves.
Those who know me have seen me overcome adversity in order to go racing, facing one hurdle after another, and even through the struggles, I've excelled at every moment.
In order to say thank you for the support, I will be giving back what I can, with insight into the motorsport world.
If you're excited as I am about next year, then hold on to your hats, it's going to be better than you think.
There are 7 rounds for the SG Petch Championship, each are on a different layout of the Teesside Autodrome.
The rounds are as follows
Round 1 - 12th March
Round 2 - 9th April
Round 3 - 21st May
Round 4 - 11th June
Round 5 - 9th July
Round 6 - 3rd September
Round 7 - 8th October
As we gain sponsorship from companies and individuals, I'll post here who does what, and I'll give you an idea of how you can support them. I'll be promoting them in return for their support at each event, anything you could do would help me for the future.
Right now I'm in talks with a huge floorcare brand, the guys who make the best vacuums in the world. Hopefully, they'll be helping to fund my effort.
I'm also in talks with a logistics company, because every race team needs a truck. It's a local company to me, and I hope we can support each other throughout the year.
I'm looking for many other partners too, as every little really does help. If you know of a party who may be interested, please egg them on to send me a message through facebook.
I don't yet have any merchandise to offer, but as soon as I do, I'll create links to the various items here for you.
I am also looking for a merchandising partner, so that I may be able to provide our team wear at a lower price to you. I hope when the time arrives, you can all support the both of us by wearing our kit at the race track.
I have redesigned the site, hopefully now it should be responsive, I'm also in talks for some racing next year. That's right, I may be back on track!
I have been in discussion with BC Cars Motorsport, it may be possible for me to race again next year with one of their cars.
The best way to get in touch, is at the race circuit. However, if you need to speak to me urgently, see my facebook page, I monitor that regularly. I don't want to post further contact information, as like most people, I'm not a fan of spam. You can find all my social media links above the navigtion bar.
