Lifeline, the industry-leading manufacturers of motorsport safety products, are the new headline sponsor for the Tony Dron Trophy, the popular and well-established series catering for Group 1 and 1½ Historic Touring Cars of the 1970s and early ‘80s run by Motor Racing Legends. Jim Morris, CEO of Lifeline, is a regular competitor in the series in his Mk 1 Volkswagen Golf and more latterly with a Volkswagen Scirocco. “This is the era of cars that I grew up with, supporting my father in the BSCC in the late ‘70s and ‘80s. This experience ignited the spark that led to a career in motorsport for me and eventually to the birth of Lifeline. It is entirely fitting that Lifeline should support this exciting era in touring car racing promoted and run so well by Motor Racing Legends,” he said of the agreement.
