Eyeful Press ReleaseIn a deal that brings the high octane world of professional motor sport with the high stakes world of corporate presentations, globally renowned consultancy Eyeful Presentations has partnered with British racing driver Tom Sharp.

Eyeful sponsors Tom Sharp - June 2011

Tom is competing in the Ginetta GT2 Supercup this year and has so far has been the stand out performer winning an impressive 6 of the races and sitting at the top of the competition leader board.  The future looks bright for Tom – all this success has come to him at the tender age of just 19 years old!

“I first got the racing bug when I turned up to a junior try out track day advertised in a local auto sport magazine.” Recalls Tom “since then I’ve been hooked, and have been working towards getting into the full British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). If I continue as I have done so far this year, hopefully that can become a reality.”

The BTCC and associated support races is an increasingly high profile motor racing event with a cumulative UK TV audience of over 14 million in 2010.

Support of young British talent is becoming something of a habit for the team at Eyeful Presentations.

Over the years they’ve made a name for themselves by recruiting raw young artists and developing them into presentations designers responsible for slides delivered by some of the World’s biggest businesses.  Customers include Microsoft, American Express and Adobe.

“The synergies between Eyeful, Tom and IDL Racing are clear.”

Explained Eyeful’s Managing Director, Simon Morton…

“Tom’s just the sort of British talent we’re dedicated to supporting – he’s an exciting talent who’s clearly going be part of the racing world for a long time. We’re equally thrilled to be working with the IDL Racing team – their enthusiasm, ambition and sense of fun in a high pressure environment like motor racing is something we can relate to in the world of presentation design and consultancy.”

In addition to working with Tom to organise exciting trackdays for staff and customers, Eyeful will be bringing race day reports, pitlane Podcast interviews and coverage from the race days directly through their website, Twitter feed and Blog.
