Birstall staff paint the Airwaves red on racy day

STAFF at Birstallbased paints and coatings manufacturer PPG Architectural Coatings EMEA enjoyed a taste of life in the fast lane when racing outfit Airwaves Racing joined them for a special ‘meet the team’ day.
The highoctane event was held to celebrate PPG’s paint brand Leyland Trade sponsoring Airwaves Racing’s British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) team for a third year.
The special day was held at PPG’s head office on Leeds Road and gave staff and their families the chance to get up close and personal with drivers Mat Jackson and Liam Griffin and take a look at the teamís spectacular cars.
The event also helped raise funds for Wakefieldbased charity Levi’s Star, which supports children with brain tumours.
The sponsorship deal with Airwaves Racing sees Leyland Paints’ name on all of the cars, transporters, drivers’ protective and team clothing, as well as throughout the team’s position in the pit lane, ensuring the brand reaches hundreds of thousands of BTCC fans across the UK.
Leyland Trade brand manager Sharon Hendry said: “We are very grateful that the team could come along to our Birstall offices as it was great for the rest of the PPG team to be able to see what Leyland Trade has been up to!
“Everyone really enjoyed the chance to see the cars and talk to the drivers and thanks to all those who took part in the raffle, we have been able to raise muchneeded funds for Levi’s Star.”
