It’s no secret that a large chunk of Gumtree users are motor enthusiasts; with over 2 million* unique visitors last month browsing our cars, we know exactly how much time and effort is put into buying and selling them. With statistics like that you’d expect the motors team at Gumtree to share that same sort of love and dedication to all things motor, and you’d be right.

Motorsport partners
Gearing up for the launch of the upcoming British Touring Car Championship 2016, Gumtree is delighted to announce our partnership with West Surrey Racing for the entire 28 week season.

Arguably one of the most exciting motor sport competitions to grace our television screens, the Championship will see some of the world’s greatest touring car drivers battle it out on the racetrack for an audience of millions.

What to watch for
WSR’s BMWs, featuring a new look and Gumtree branding, will be kicking off the contest at Brands Hatch on 3 April 2016. Every round will be screened live and free-to-air on ITV4 in the UK with at least seven hours of coverage at every event.

Andrew Hooks, Director of Motors at Gumtree, said: “We are thrilled to partner with West Surrey Racing for the approaching British Touring Car Championship season. 2016 is proving to be a great year for us; we launched into January with a major re-brand and we’re looking forward to focusing on more exciting developments for our users further down the line. It’ll be fantastic to be able to tie in our new look with that of WSR’s BMWs, making for a very exciting watching experience for all involved.”
