Greenlight Sports Management is delighted to announce that it has become an Official Partner of the Motorsport UK Academy and will provide expert insight and guidance for members of the programme.
The company was founded by Guy Smith and Andy Meyrick and is uniquely equipped to provide world-class support for its clients. Guy claimed victory with Bentley at the 2003 24 Hours of Le Mans and has raced with notable success throughout his career, while Andy has been a factory driver, is Director of the BRDC SuperStars elite young driver programme, and is Motorsport UK Team UK Performance Manager.
The duo will deliver workshops to Motorsport UK Academy drivers on the Enhanced Diploma in Sporting Excellence and Team UK Futures Programmes, with the workshops enabling drivers to receive crucial guidance on how to push their career forwards through the identification and management of opportunities to succeed on and off the track.
In addition, Motorsport UK Academy drivers not affiliated with other management companies will be offered free consultation on services from mentoring, representation and negotiation, administration, branding, and content creation, as well as PR and communications.
Andy Meyrick, Greenlight Sports Management Director comments:
“I’m absolutely delighted to announce our partnership with Motorsport UK. As a driver, I have been part of the Team UK program and subsequently have been Performance Manager for Team UK for many years. Therefore, I am fully aware of the excellent work the academy provides and how it has contributed to so many talented British drivers. Guy and I are looking forward to adding and growing to this relationship with Motorsport UK.”
Hugh Chambers, Motorsport UK Chief Executive Officer comments:
“Young drivers are becoming increasingly aware of how they present themselves both on and off track. Guy and Andy have years of experience, and through Greenlight Sports Management, both can provide Motorsport UK Academy drivers with valuable insight on their own experience as well as helping to best support them on the next steps in their career.”
