WHAT WE OFFER
Represented by former Corvette factory driver, Oliver Gavin, we are realistic, pragmatic and we deliver value – Three straightforward statements that underline our philosophy when it comes to negotiating and co-operating with our existing and future financial partners.
We provide the entry to an arena that’s exhilarating, exciting, attention-grabbing, and highly promotable for our partners, but fundamentally it’s about business and delivering the best return on our partners’ investment with us.
Flexibility is another of our core values. We understand that our partners have different objectives to fulfil, and so we individually tune involvement with Ben and the team according to what will work best to achieve our partner’s goals, and return the maximum value from every pound, euro or dollar spent.
We’re not alone in accomplishing this…With their years of experience, the championship organisers provide us with first-rate infrastructure and resources to fulfil our and our partner’s needs, from highly visible TV race exposure, through a well-oiled and highly-effective Championship PR and promotion, to collaborations with race-day hospitality.
A TIERED APPROACH TO INVESTMENT
From our experience of partner requirements, allied to their required level of financial involvement, we have developed a tiered approach to financial investment in Ben and the team. This is purely the starting line. We then negotiate individually with all partners to fine tune rights and involvement to suit specific requirements.
We look forward to talking with you…

SHARE IN THE SUCCESS OF PROFESSIONAL RACING DRIVER, BEN TUCK
It was 2018 when Ben Tucks success in the UK’s premier GT sportscar championship unlocked the path to what has become an impressive journey in the high echelon of international GT and endurance motor racing.
A sensational season ended with a thrilling finale and a final race duel for the title, which prompted BMW’s global Motorsport division to offer an invitation to the prestigious BMW Junior Team shoot-out, propelling him into the international racing arena in 2019, beginning his hugely successful partnerships with the elite BMW M customer racing team, Walkenhorst Motorsport and Champion Aston Martin squad, TF Sport. A bursting trophy cabinet is emphatic proof of Ben’s skill and stature, as are coveted personal endorsements by the British Racing Drivers’ Club – motorsport’s most exclusive club – through his BRDC ‘Rising Star’ and ‘SuperStar’awards in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
Today, with six years of consistent success in highly competitive GT racing behind him and the momentum continuing to build, Ben is established as one of the brightest beacons of British motorsport talent. We welcome you to share in his success.
MY AMBITION IS TO BE THE BEST, TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES. TO WORK HARDER, TO LEARN FASTER, TO THINK QUICKER
AND TO GRASP EVERY POSSIBLE OPPORTUNITY TO PURSUE A TOP FLIGHT CAREER IN MOTORSPORT.
Ben is an absolutely focused and charismatic young racer who puts his full commitment into racing and achieving his goals every day. We as a team appreciate his loyalty and determination coupled with his outstanding speed and achievements. Ben is a great team player and we hope to be able to celebrate many common successes together

BEN TUCK : SUCCESS AT EVERY TURN
Following his UK success, Ben headed to the most challenging circuit in the world to develop and hone his racing credentials – Germany’s infamous 13-mile, 154-turn Nürburgring Nordschleife. Immediately on the pace, he finished the 2019 season with a string of five successive podiums in the VLN series in GT4, one at the world-famous Nürburgring 24 Hours. 2020 saw Ben move up a gear to contest the new DTM Trophy alongside VLN, competing in the team’s BMW M4 GT4. Victory again came his way, with no less than nine top five finishes and third overall in the championship standings.
Ben moved up to the top echelon of the team in 2021, at the wheel of the potent Walkenhorst BMW M6 GT3 as part of their top Pro crew, inevitably recording his first GT3 win and following up with another podium in 2022 with BMW’s brand-new flagship, the M4 GT3.
Switching to a new challenge in 2023, Ben joined up with GT veterans TF Sport to compete in the highly prestigious European Le Mans Series (ELMS), behind the wheel of the stunning Aston Martin Vantage GTE, again claiming a podium in just his second race.
ELMS is under the management of vastly experienced organisers, Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) the power behind the legendary Le Mans race itself. With more than 100 years steering International GT and Sportscar racing behind then, they know just how to make it work…for drivers, teams, media, the public and, as our partners, for you too.

I have known Ben since 2019 when he first joined Team Walkenhorst at the VLN. He showed an outstanding performance right from the start at the hardest and most challenging circuit in the world, the Nürburgring Nordschleife. In 2020 I had the pleasure to work with Ben in the DTM Trophy, and he won his first race at Spa in one of the strongest GT4 Championships in the world and finished 3rd in the championship. Ben is not only lightning fast, he always stays cool, focused and concentrated, has a great technical knowledge and he is working really well with data and video analysis. Besides this great racer is a well-educated, happy and friendly person…the perfect racing driver package.
DURING THE 2018 SEASON I FOUND BEN TO BE VERY PROACTIVE IN DEVELOPING THE BMW M4 GT4 CAR. HE IS VERY MUCH A TEAM PLAYER GIVING 100% AT ALL TIMES. HE HAS BEEN A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH AND I LOOK FORWARD TO DOING SO AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.
