Ignition Human Performance is pleased to confirm a commercial partnership with racing driver and current GB4 Championship Leader, Alex Walker.
The partnership will see IHP support Alex on both the commercial and personal development sides of his racing career, as he looks to step up the ladder towards the pinnacle of elite motorsport. Starting his degree at Bath University in Sports Performance in September, he will also work with IHP as a Brand Ambassador and Speaker at selected client and partner events.
Alex has regularly been in the top ten rankings at World, European, and British karting events, before making the step up into car racing in the F4 British Championship in 2019. Entering four rounds, he claimed a Rookie Cup podium in his third ever contest and ended the year with five Rookie podiums.
This success has drawn attention from both McLaren and Porsche, who selected Alex for evaluation in their junior programmes, with him making the finals stage of both scholarships. He has also drawn well deserved praise from the motorsport personalities such as former racing driver and presenter, Tiff Needell who said:
Alex currently sits at the top of the championship in the inaugural GB4 Championship (the MSV’s new series for aspiring F1 drivers in association with the BRDC) with 3 wins so far. The rest of the season will see Alex race at iconic UK tracks such as Donington Park, Brands Hatch and the home of the British Grand Prix – Silverstone. The GB4 Championship supports the British GT championship, which has enjoyed renewed interest recently, thanks to guest appearances from 2009 F1 World Champion Jenson Button.
Talking about the partnership the 18-year-old British driver says:
IHP Managing Director Nick Butcher is equally excited to announce this new partnership:
