Together, We Progress Racing is a partnership born from a Father and Son team – Jon and Will Earp – and a chance meeting with Wrexham Glyndŵr University.
Initially the project ran a single Mazda Mk1 MX5 but inertia grew exponentially with each season bringing new cars, support vehicles, challenges, growth and ultimately successes.
Fast forward a few years, TWP currently runs a two car team: a Mazda Mk3 MX5 and a S2 Lotus Elise. The Mk1 MX5 that started the whole project was sold to fund the Lotus build, so we sadly had to say goodbye.
TWP Racing compete in the 750 Motor Club - TEGIWA Club Enduro Championship; typically two and three hour races with compulsory pit stops. The freedom within the regulations allows the team the opportunity to develop the cars in multiple departments: aerodynamics, power, handling, chassis compliance, etc.
Although many of the TWP Students are studying Engineering-based degrees, several members of the team are studying other subjects such as; Criminology & Criminal Justice, Film & Photography, Graphic Design, Broadcast Journalism, and many more.
The Team prides itself on one core value: Inclusion.
