New Partnership - Rory Butcher

The Leven Car Company are proud to announce that we are supporting Rory Butcher in this seasons British Touring Car Championships.

Rory is a British racing driver, currently competing in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) with Cobra Sport AmD and AutoAid/RCIB Insurance Racing, having made his debut in the BTCC for Motorbase Performance in August 2017.

He has also competed in several other series during his career, including the Scottish Formula Ford Championship, the Porsche Carrera Cup Great Britain, the British Formula Ford Championship, the British GT Championship and the European Le Mans Series.

As part of our partnership, Rory will be taking on an ambassador role for our company… particularly for our newly formed Leven Sports Car Club.

We created the Leven Sports Car Club in April 2019 to celebrate the launch of our new Caterham dealership. The official launch of our club, and new partnership with Caterham, was held on the 18th April, at Knockhill Racing Circuit.

The main aim of this exclusive club is to bring like-minded owners together to enjoy their pride and joys, whether that be out on the track, at our breakfast meetings or at any of our other events. We felt that it was important to relate to our clients, and arrange events for the community to enjoy!

Kicking off our partnership, Rory attended the Leven Sports Car Club launch event at Knockhill Racing Circuit on 18th April 2019. Having him drive the incredible Rapide AMR around the track all day with our clients certainly added to the already fantastic experience.

The partnership allows us to strengthen our relationship with Knockhill, Rory’s Family Business…

Rory recently dropped by our Kia dealership to pick up the highly thought of Kia Stinger GTS V6.

This will be his method of transport down to Croft Circuit this weekend, where he is competing.

He was very keen to get his hands on the Stinger, and we cannot wait to receive his feedback on the car. Keep an eye out on his Instagram for regular updates on this.

As one of the most sought after driving coaches in the UK, he has kindly offered to coach a number of our very own clients. Imagine taking your sports car out on the track with one of the leading BTCC drivers at the moment… sounds fun, right?

This is something that we can facilitate through our Aston Martin, Lotus, Caterham and Specialist Cars dealerships.

*T’s & C’s Apply. Rory of course cannot be available for all of these, however this incredible experience can also be offered with other leading driving coaches.  

Our Managing Director, Chris McMahon, currently races in the Caterham Motorsport Academy Championships and actually learnt the ropes by training with Butcher.

 

As a real car enthusiast and being client focussed, we truly believe Rory merges well with our own company’s values. We sure are looking forward to him becoming more involved with our upcoming events and we wish him the very best of luck this BTCC season!
