Will Tregurtha Extends Unbroken Podium Run To Four

Posted on Sep 05, 2019


In line with our mission to help clients become operationally exceptional and carve out a competitive edge, race car driver William Tregurtha has been sponsored by Enlighten for the last two years as he sets his sights on achieving the highest accolades in the sport.

On August 3rd, Tregurtha produced yet another superb performance on his latest outing in the VLN endurance series in Germany. Continuing to impress in the ultra-competitive series at the wheel of his BMW M4 GT4, the 19-year-old driver achieved a terrific top three class finish – his fourth podium in as many races in the category.

Beginning the race from fourth in class, an impressive 38th overall from the huge 146 car entry, the quartet performed very strongly. Tregurtha took the first stint, running for almost two hours and in extremely tough conditions, he delivered a fantastic drive. Some delays in the pits plus a problem with a sheared wheel stud, stopped a very realistic bid for victory though. Even so, a determined performance – with eye-opening race pace – enabled the squad to still seal a top three finish.

“We had to make the time up on track, but we ploughed through and finished just 0.2 seconds off second place and only 26 seconds from the win. Having dropped minutes in the pits, we’re pretty satisfied to have fought back so strongly and to be on the podium again”, reflected Enlighten-backed Tregurtha.

Congratulations, Will! We are proud to sponsor you!
