Paul Luti is launching his bid to be on the starting grid of the 2010 British Touring Car Championship with his new 'racethemg' website, where would-be sponsors can read about his quest to race an MG ZS in the series.

The 26 year-old is currently competing in the MG Trophy Championship and is one of the first drivers to race the new MG TF LE500 car since the launch of the re-designed sports car in 2008.

With local sponsors already showing an interest in the project, Luti is keen to extend the invitation to motorsport and MG enthusiasts in the UK and around the globe.

"I would be thrilled to race an MG car in the British Touring Car Championship and would be delighted to receive support from any companies or individuals with an interest in keeping MG's rich racing heritage alive," Luti said.

"There are a wide range of sponsorship options available to those interested in supporting my bid, including hospitality at the race track, company names and corporate logos featured on the car, and an in-depth company profile on my website, ''. I'd also be happy to offer my car for display at public and corporate events."

Sponsors who elect to feature their names on the car will be automatically entered into a prize draw on the 'racethemg' website for the chance to win two tickets to a round of the BTCC together complete with hospitality, and will also be offered the opportunity to get involved with the race team and help prepare Luti's car for racing.

Luti began his career racing Rover Metros and progressed to an MG ZR, his family's own unique MG ZT520 and is currently racing the new MG TF LE500.

He recently made history at Silverstone by becoming the first race driver to win a race in the Chinese-built MG car, winning two rounds of the MG Car Club's MG Trophy Championship during the internationally acclaimed MGLive! show.

"I would be delighted to take up the challenge of racing an MG ZS in what is arguably one of the UK's most prestigious championships and would be happy to discuss my team's plans with any interested parties," Luti concluded.
