CDW, a leading provider of information technology solutions to business, government, education and healthcare customers, has partnered with Team BRIT, a motor racing team of disabled drivers which aims to be the first ever all-disabled team to compete in the Le Mans 24 Hours race.

The team’s goal of making motorsport history is moving closer after it unveiled its latest car for 2022 – a brand new McLaren 570S GT4 at an exclusive event held in London today, Wednesday 27th October.

The team’s world-leading hand-based controls have been fitted to the McLaren to enable paraplegic driver Aaron Morgan to compete on equal terms with able-bodied competitors. Aaron will team up with the world’s fastest autistic racing driver, 22-year-old Bobby Trundley. Bobby and Aaron have stunned competitors on the track this year in the Britcar Endurance Championship with multiple podium finishes and claiming 3rd position in the class 4 overall championship.

Team BRIT will enter the British GT Championship in 2022 and will race in the McLaren. For over a year, CDW has sponsored Team BRIT and CDW solutions specialist Aaron Morgan enabling Aaron and the team to compete.

This announcement adds an additional step to the ladder of motorsport development on offer through the team for disabled drivers. With Bobby and Aaron competing in British GT in 2022, drivers Andy Tucker and Luke Pound will step up to the team’s Aston Martin GT4 in the British Endurance Championship. New rookies will begin their racing journey in the team’s bespoke-build BMWs.

In addition, disabled drivers looking to experience the thrill of the racetrack can book onto track sessions though the team’s Racing Academy.

"CDW is delighted to be able to support Aaron and is excited to see his progression driving a McLaren 570S GT4. Everyone at CDW looks forward to continuing to follow Aaron on his racing journey and we can’t wait to see how well the team will undoubtedly do in the coming seasons," said Jonathan Eyton-Williams, Director, Integrated Technology & Partner Alliances at CDW.

Team BRIT Founder Dave Player added: “This is a milestone moment for our team and something we have worked tirelessly to achieve. Our plans have always been bold, ambitious and beyond belief for many, but we know we will achieve our goal of reaching Le Mans. On top of that, we are making changes to motorsport that are crucial for true accessibility.

“We would not be doing any of this without the constant support and belief of our army of sponsors, of which CDW is a crucial part. I would like to thank everyone at CDW for everything they have done to help us and look forward to them being part of our incredible story moving forward.”
