Rev Up the Excitement: Zeus Cloud Racing Takes the Lead in BTCC Sponsorship

Zeus Cloud Racing with WSR will debut at next weekend’s Snetterton British Touring Car Championship round with fan favourite Bobby Thompson at the wheel of a BMW 330e M Sport. The news ensures that a fourth BMW will be on the grid for the remainder of the season with multiple podium-finisher Bobby carrying his familiar #19 on the WSR designed, built, and run race car.

The 27-year-old from Hornchurch has scored three podium finishes in the BTCC over the past two seasons and was the series Jack Sears Trophy champion in 2022. He will now join Colin Turkington, Adam Morgan, and Jake Hill to complete a quartet of BMWs in the UK’s leading motor racing championship, every round of which is broadcast live on ITV4 in the UK and on ITV Sport’s TikTok channel globally. This exciting new partnership with 16-time BTCC champions WSR marks the first foray into the series.

Bobby’s BMW will carry the full Zeus Cloud Racing livery, which will be unveiled ahead of the Snetterton race weekend!

Bobby Tompson, Zeus Cloud Racing Driver said; “It’s honestly a dream come true! This journey has been a rollercoaster of emotions, filled with relentless hard work and the tireless support of my incredible family. I’m immensely grateful to WSR for their unwavering belief in me, guiding me through every step, especially during the Brands Hatch test. And to Zeus Cloud and their visionary CEO, Mark, your support is beyond words – it’s something I used to only dream about. With a team that’s growing stronger by the day and support that’s nothing short of amazing, I’m so excited to hit the track as soon as possible – I wish Snetterton was this weekend!”

Dick Bennetts, Team Principal at WSR, said; “We’re delighted to welcome Bobby and Zeus Cloud to WSR. It was always clear what a determined and tenacious racer Bobby was when he was a rival, but when he tested with us in April at Brands Hatch we saw just what his capabilities were on and off-track. A huge thank you to Zeus Cloud for making this programme possible. Their business is integrating cloud solutions to create one cohesive platform and running a motorsport team is very similar as we combine the skills of our team members to try to win on the racetrack. The partnership of Zeus Cloud, Bobby and the WSR BMW has everything needed to perform.”

Mark Grindey, CEO at Zeus Cloud, said; “Our team at Zeus Cloud are incredibly happy to collaborate with WSR and Bobby Thompson. It is refreshing and a fantastic opportunity to be working with people like Bobby who have worked their way up.”

“It is a fantastic opportunity for us to sponsor Bobby, especially with how aligned our values are. It was great to be able to see how family orientated they are at WSR and lovely to see how humble Bobby is. The rest of this year is going to be a pleasure and hopefully we can work with them in long term. Even though Bobby is a southerner – let’s not hold it against him!”
