As a dedicated business operating over numerous divisions, Graham Heath Construction is proud to support local clients and customers. In addition to the great work we do within the construction industry, we’re also proud to be sponsors of numerous individuals at pivotal events. Here we look at what at our sponsorship of Mickey Heath in the XR Championships.
What is the XR Championship?
The XR Championship is a pivotal racing event. The XR Challenge was the original Ford saloon car race championship with numerous classes including the XR2 (Fiesta) and XR3i (Escort). This year the classes have been expanded further to include Class C (Fiesta 1800 Si).
We like to show our belief in others and that’s why we are proud to offer a range of sponsorships. Our sponsorship of Mickey Heath in the XR Championships is something we’re incredibly proud of and have been doing for 3-4 years now.
Mickey has actually been involved in the championship for a little longer, picking up our sponsorship around halfway through his 8-9 year experience with the competition. He’s naturally a big fan of XR racing and we’re proud to help him play his part in this fantastic sport.
Since our sponsorship began with Mickey, he has experienced great success. In the first year of sponsorship, he finished second in the championship – a great achievement by any standard.
Just last year, he topped that achievement by winning all the competitions outright. This included the overall XR Championship as well as the XR2 Championship and the Anglesey Championship.
We’re confident that Mickey can continue his winning streak in the future and although he’s taken a small step back from the racing circuit this year, he’s looking forward to getting firmly back behind the wheel next year.
When asked about his dealings with GHC and our sponsorship of him, Mickey said that it had “helped him no end”. We’re proud to sponsor people like Mickey to do well in their chosen pursuits and look forward to a long and productive future between the pair of us.
