News 2012: Lancope returns to the track with Redstone Racing

October 5th

Lancope returns to the track with Redstone Racing

Redstone's Accelerated Alliance Partner joins the team once more at Silverstone

Network performance and security monitoring provider Lancope will be heading to 'The Home of British Motorsport' Silverstone Circuit on Sunday 7th October 2012 to re-join Redstone in its sponsorship of the Redstone Racing team.

Lancope and its guests will be cheering on the Motorbase-run team, and adorning the team's Ford Focus 'Red Devils' with its logo as co-sponsor of the team for the penultimate round of the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.

The support comes after Redstone launched its 'Accelerated Alliance' sponsorship and business development package for vendor partners earlier in the year when Redstone became title sponsor of the Motorbase Performance British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) team Redstone Racing.

Lancope's return comes as Redstone Racing looks to capitalise on its success and further close the gap on the Independents Championship leaders. Both Mat Jackson and Aron Smith delivered strong race results at Rockingham two weeks ago, with the Mountune-powered S2000 and NGTC cars narrowly missing out on top three finishes.

The Redstone Racing squad is further boosted by the reappearance of its third Focus as Liam Griffin makes his return to the Championship after a short sabbatical.

"Lancope is a strategic partner for Redstone and a key pillar of our end-to-end service to customers," said Richard Archer, Sales Director at Redstone.  "As well as allowing our customers to maximise their investment in their IT infrastructure, Lancope's offering is key to network security. Not a day goes by without a high profile security breach in the news, so to have Lancope's expertise available to our customers is very important for Redstone."

"We're delighted to be one of the first on board Redstone's Accelerated Alliance programme," said Steve Simpson, Director of International Sales and Operations at Lancope. "We look forward to raising our profile with Redstone's customers, and supporting the Redstone Racing team in this exciting season."
Round 9 of the BTCC featuring races 25, 26 and 27 take place on Sunday 7th October. Live coverage of Sunday's events will be shown on ITV4, itv.com and also in HD from 11.00am – 6pm; with itv.com featuring live streaming online of Saturday's qualifying session between 3.05 and 3.45pm.
