Glew forced to skip Rockingham

Sponsor blow forces Phil Glew to sit out Rockingham event.

Phil Glew has announced that he will be unable to race at Rockingham this weekend, venue for the second round in the 2010 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The Clio Cup champion has been left in an 'untenable situation' after the loss of Triple Eight Racing Engineering team main sponsor, UNIQ. Glew's sponsor, WD-40 will continue to support him and hopes to work with him again in the future.

“I'm devastated to be out of the car at this early stage in the season,” said Glew. “My main efforts are now focused on putting together a concrete package which suits WD-40, myself, and our other sponsors to enable us to begin racing again and continue our fantastic relationship.”

“We have supported Phil Glew for the last two years, first in the Renault Clio Cup, which he won, and now in BTCC,” added David Whittome, head of UK Marketing for WD-40.

“We fully support Phil Glew and recognise his fantastic potential in motor sport and will be working hard to find ways in which we can continue to work with him in the future.”
