Two of the Midlands' most successful companies have joined forces to contend in the 2004 British Touring Car Championship.

Rimstock Plc, the largest manufacturer of alloy wheels for the automotive industry in the UK, and Computeach International, the UK's leading supplier of IT training via distance learning, have come together to take part in the country's most prestigious motorsport series.

Fielding the Honda Type R racer, Team Dynamics is going for front-running pace, helmed by literal racing giant Matt Neal. The team is now known as 'Team Dynamics Computeach Racing'.

Neal raced for the factory Honda team in 2003, but makes a surprise return to the team that helped him secure the first outright independent win in modern touring car history when he triumphed at Donington Park in 1999.

"It is fantastic to be back with the guys at Team Dynamics," Neal admitted, "We have enjoyed some fantastic successes together and I know that this next season will be truly exciting, as they have the best equipment and team for the job.

"It is also great to be involved with their new title sponsor, Computeach International, who are backing us all the way."

With over forty years' experience, Midlands-based Computeach offers a range of training solutions for both individuals and businesses. The group has over 13,000 learners, ranging from individuals undertaking a change of career to high-level ICT training through to corporate employees improving existing skills.

"It is with great pleasure that we are joining Team Dynamics in their 2004 British Touring Car Championship programme as title sponsors," company chairman Karl Parkinson commented, "We know that many enthusiasts who follow the championship are also interested in IT, and we believe that this is a superb marketing platform for both our brand and training courses."

Rimstock, located in West Bromwich in the heart of the Midlands, manufacture alloy wheels for the world's leading car manufacturers who require original equipment, and the global aftermarket with their leading alloy wheel brand Team Dynamics Alloy Wheels.

"Team Dynamics are an invaluable marketing asset for Rimstock, their profile is global and therefore our Team Dynamics wheel brand can be seen across the globe in front of literally millions of fans," MD Steve Neal said, "It's safe to say that 2004 looks to be really exciting with the inclusion of Matt and the team's new title sponsor, Computeach International."

Rimstock are also supplying the controlled wheels for the BTC Championship, which have been developed at company headquarters using the very latest technology and the experience of the world's most knowledgeable engineers.
