AT 15 years old, Marcus Littlewood is already a successful junior racing driver about to compete in the 2020 X30 Junior British Kart Championships.
With a string of competition wins already, Marcus is now being recognised as demonstrating he’s on the right road to Formula1 success.
This success has attracted sponsorship from Bailey Roofing, based in Milton Keynes.
Competing since he was 5, Marcus has developed a huge passion for racing. He will begin the first circuit for the 2020 X30 championships in September, proudly bearing the Bailey Roofing colours of red, white and black/dark grey and company logo on all his kit and kart.
Nathan Bailey said, “Bailey Roofing supports the younger generation through running apprenticeship programs and we want to do more for the community. We are delighted to become Marcus’s sponsor and know that he has the potential to grow and achieve his goal to eventually become a Formula 1 driver.
“It’s been really interesting watching what was involved in the Bailey branding on Marcus’s clothes and kart. Marcus is living the dream that a lot of us here would have wanted to do as a young man. We feel really proud that we have been able to help him along the way and we will be cheering him on this season.
“We are behind you 100% Marcus and we look forward to watching you live out your dream. Don’t forget to give us tickets to Silverstone when you hit the big time!”
Marcus’s parents and older brother, Max have supported him all the way through his motor racing dream journey. His dad, Steve Littlewood and his brother lend a hand as mechanics and are his greatest fans.
The road to success
Marcus’s next goal is to finish high in the British Championships this year then move on to ‘seniors’ next year when he is 16, competing in Europe.
His long-term ambition is to move into racing cars, starting at Formula 4 and working his way up to Formula 1.
