Scots IT specialist sponsors rising motorsport star

A SCOTS IT specialist has announced its sponsorship of one of the country’s young, rising motorsport stars.

Workflo Solutions, the managed services and IT support service specialist, has agreed to sponsor 16-year-old Chloe Grant from Perth.

This sponsorship comes as Chloe prepares for the inaugural GB4 Championship – a new motor racing championship for open wheel, formula racing cars in the UK.

The Livingston-based company joins forces with Laser Tools Racing and John Clark Motor Group to support the youngster as she moves from the karting circuit into motor car racing on the new GB4 series.

Chloe Grant stood with Workflo Solutions MD Michael Field.
Workflo Solutions managing director,Michael Field (R) called Chloe a “future champion” of motorsport.

She will compete at several major UK circuits in the coming months, including Silverstone, Oulton Park, Snetterton, and Donington Park.

Chloe started karting in 2013 when she was seven years old.

By 2017 she was racing in Minimax Karts and that year won the East of Scotland Kart Club (ESKC) Championship and was also named the Most Improved Minimax Driver of The Year.

At the Scottish Motor Racing Club 2019 awards night, Chloe was chosen to be an SMRC Rising Star and the youngest ever to be given this award.

In 2020, Chloe become the youngest driver to gain a Motorsport UK Junior Racing Driver License in Scotland.

Michael Field, managing director of Workflo Solutions, said: “Sponsoring Chloe as she steps up to the next level on the motor racing circuit was something we were very keen to do.

“Her focus and dedication to the sport is incredible and I genuinely believe she has all the makings of a future champion in the years ahead.

“Think of the great Scots who made their mark in motor racing – Sir Jackie Stewart, David Coulthard, and Dario Franchetti, and in a few years’ time, Chloe can easily emulate them as a female Scottish motorsport champion.”

Chloe Grant said: “I am thrilled Workflo Solutions has agreed to sponsor me for my first season in GB4.

“The step up from karting and saloon racing to GB4 is a testament to the faith placed in me by my small team of sponsors who support my ambitions to follow my dream to reach the pinnacle of my sport.

“It’s an opportunity I’ll grasp and make Workflo and my other sponsors proud of my achievements.”
