We are very fortunate to have a successful Motor Racing Company in Banbury and we are pleased to supply them with promotional umbrellas.

I invited Deborah Lyall, the GP2, GP3 & WRS Team Co-ordinator of Arden International, to say something about the company.

“Arden International was founded in 1997 by Christian and Garry Horner. The team competed in the F3000 until 2004 when the Championship was replaced by the GP2 Series in 2005. Arden International continued with competing in the GP2 Series. In 2010, Arden strengthened its link with RedBull F1 by teaming up with Mark Webber, RedBulls experienced F1 driver to lead a team, MW Arden in the GP3 Championship to success. In 2012, Arden partnered with Caterham Group to compete in the World Series by Renault FR3.5 Championship.

The GP2 Series continues to prove itself as a Feeder Series into the F1 Championship with twelve experienced GP2 drivers now involved, three of which have graduated through Arden International.

The GP3 Series is known as the Stepping Stone to the Feeder Series of F1. Its aim is to give young upcoming drivers a chance to develop their driving skills and jump to the next step, the GP2 Series.

World Series by Renault FR 3.5 has seen Robert Kubica, Sebastian Vettel, Jean-Eric Vergne, Will Power and Daniel Ricciardo sharpen their skills in this Championship before stepping up to the very highest level of Motorsport.”

We are privileged, in our small way, to support the team by providing them with their umbrellas, beautifully emblazoned with all the logos. You can see some pictures of them in use, in the attached images – although it looks like they were being used as parasols in this instance!

For more details about using umbrellas as promotional items, please see my latest blog, or view the various options in our on-line catalogue.
