Halfords Team Dynamics Race Festival Donington 25th and 26th September 2004

Halfords and Team Dynamics are linking up to sponsor one the most exciting race meetings of the UK season at Donington Park on September 25/26, when the UK's premier professional motor racing series, the Green Flag British Touring Car Championship, will play out its explosive final title battle. Backed by a full support programme of racing, including the unique BTCC Masters race in which a pack of the series' favourite old boys will line up in a race for identical SEAT Cupras, the festival promises to have something to entertain all the family.

In an innovative twist on traditional arrangements race team and international wheel brand Team Dynamics is backing an event in which its race cars will play a starring role. The Computeach Racing with Halfords Honda Civics, which it runs, have been among the most successful cars in the 2004 BTCC driven by Matt Neal and Dan Eaves. Now Team Dynamics, backed by its sponsor Halfords, is seeking to ramp up the entertainment and bring the Donington meeting to the masses. A demonstration from an RAF fighter plane; rally car demonstrations and a free concert featuring The Cheeky Girls will all be part of the meeting. And best of all Halfords and Team Dynamics are making all this available to a many more people with a series of top ticket offers.

Team Dynamics has long been a crowd favourite in the BTCC, frequently running super-successful cars for Neal as the series' favourite privateer underdog against well-backed factory outfits. Now the current rules make it a little easier for private teams to compete against the full works cars and Team Dynamics are running two top-line, winning, cars for the first time in the outfit's most successful season to date. This is Halfords third year of sponsorship in the championship and its first year with Team Dynamics who are a major alloy wheel supplier to its 400 stores around the UK.

Neal drove his 250th BTCC race at Brands Hatch recently and is delighted to be able to add a little more of the characteristic Team Dynamics and Halfords sparkle to the Donington Park event. "This is a fantastic way to give something back to the fans who support the BTCC and our team and a great way to end the season," said Neal. "Our marketing agency Spiderzone Ltd has worked day and night to present a whole host of exciting activities to support the weekend's racing."

The thrilling extras on the bill at Donington will include a dramatic display from an RAF Tornado F3 and a display from a Subaru Impreza World Rally Car driven by Team Dynamics-backed double British Champion Jonny MiIlner. Once the racing's over there will be a free live concert and party to keep you at Donington. Footnote: Concert featuring Cheeky Girls, MelC's Mums band Joan O'Neil Band (River Deep), Paul O'Neil on drums and lots of freebies from Touring Car drivers Matt Neal and Dan Eaves will start at approximately 6.15-6.30 in the Main Paddock which is free of charge to go to and will run until approximately 10.00pm.

Pop duo The Cheeky Girls headlines the concert.
