Company Director, Simon Charlton, is excited to see how the partnership unfolds. Having been a long-time ‘petrol head’, Simon declares: 

“Sponsoring Lydia’s team was a natural decision for me having already been a Mini lover after owning two JCWs and a Cooper SD which I use as my daily drive. The way they are family orientated is brilliant and competing in such a male dominated racing sport is amazing!”

A grateful Lydia explained:

“Motorsport is such a team game and it’s important to surround yourself with the right people. I truly believe that Carlton Cleaning is the genuine perfect fit for us. I am honoured that Simon and his team have chosen me as the lucky driver to be first to benefit from a partnership with them, and I look forward to carrying their branding on my car amongst the huge BTCC crowds and those watching at home on ITV4.”
