AARON MORGAN & TEAM BRIT
CDW is a proud Official Partner of British GT Championship contender Aaron Morgan and Official Technology Partner of Team BRIT.
Team BRIT aims to make motorsport history by becoming the first ever British team of disabled drivers to compete in the gruelling Le Mans 24-hour endurance race. Through coworker Aaron Morgan, CDW IT Solutions Specialist and Team BRIT driver, CDW has supported Team BRIT since 2020. At the age of 15, Aaron lost the use of his legs, but through his grit and determination, he’s advanced from racing motorbikes to racing a McLaren 570S GT4, fitted with the team’s hand control technology, at the very apex of GT racing.
The team’s hand controls are the most advanced in the world and allow Aaron to race as a pair with his co-driver Bobby Trundley, who is autistic, on a level playing field against able-bodied drivers.
Last year, Aaron and Bobby made history as the first disabled driver pairing to take part in the British GT Championship, an achievement to add to their other history-making moments, including their first GT4 overall podium and their momentous class victory at Spa. The team has steadily grown from its inception in 2015 to fielding 10 drivers across four championships in 2023, offering entry level racing for rookie drivers right up to GT4 racing.
CDW proudly supports Aaron and the rest of Team BRIT to achieve their racing targets and to continue to inspire and motivate people facing physical and psychological challenges.
- First British GT GT4 overall podium finish – 2022
- GT4 Pro-AM Victory at Spa
- CDW McLaren 570s GT4 Tour 2022: Manchester, Peterborough, London, Rugby
“This year we made history as the first ever disabled driver pairing to compete in the British GT Championship. Driving out onto the track for the first race was a surreal moment for the whole team. Knowing that we’re setting new boundaries for other disabled sportspeople is something we’re incredibly proud of and has to be my personal highlight.”

CDW is proud to support Sophie Stone in her professional golfing career and position as a role model in the sport.
Sophie Stone is a professional golfer who joined the ranks in April 2021. She played her first professional event that year at the West Lancashire Golf Club in the Rose Ladies Series. Since then, with the support of CDW, Sophie has continued to pursue her passion for golf, travelling across the world to compete in some of the sport’s most prestigious competitions. In doing so, Sophie continues to support and raise the profile of women in golf and sport.
CDW continues to proudly support Sophie in pursuing her professional golfing career and developing her profile as a role model in the sport.
- “Beat the Pro” Golf Day
- Women and Allies Golf Day
“CDW’s sponsorship allows me to play more golf, travel to more tournaments, and carry on doing what I love. Financially, it supports my goal to build on last year and continue to establish my profile as a role model in the industry. Perhaps most importantly, the sponsorship enables me to continue to grow the game and promote women in golf. For example, I was delighted to speak at CDW’s ‘Beat the Pro’ and ‘Women and Allies Golf Day’ where I talked about how women can overcome perceived barriers and break into sport.”
