A Bury St Edmund’s retailer is speeding ahead as it renews its support for a talented racing driver. 

Northgate Volkswagen has confirmed its commitment to Rupert Svendsen-Cook, for his second season in British Formula 3 International Series.

The 20-year-old from Bury St Edmunds, finished in a creditable 7th  position in his ‘rookie’ season and is aiming to enhance his performance this year.

Rupert said: “To have the continued support of Northgate Volkswagen is a fantastic boost for me. As I travel the country to compete I am proud to represent my local Volkswagen retailer.

“Last year was a great debut season and now my focus is all on winning this year’s British F3 Championship. I am very thankful for the support of Northgate as I continue my journey towards Formula 1.”

Robert Rolfe, Northgate Volkswagen’s brand manager, said: “As a company we strive to support up-and-coming talent and community projects where we can.

“We were more than happy to renew our sponsorship with Rupert. He has made an impressive impact on the racing scene and we wishing him every success in the future.”
