Delphi sponsors rising talent in BRSCC AIRTEC Motorsport Fiesta ST240 Championship


Delphi has announced its partnership with young racing hotshot, Joseph Knight. The sponsorship will see the eighteen-year-old represent Delphi as he competes in the BRSCC AIRTEC Motorsport Fiesta ST240 Championship.


Joseph has shown exceptional skill and determination in his racing career. His journey from karting to senior racing has been marked by podium finishes and an unwavering passion for motorsport. With Delphi’s support, Joseph aims to make a statement in the upcoming season and further solidify his place in the racing world.


“I’m so pleased to have Delphi backing me this season,” said Joseph. “With Delphi’s support, I’m not just racing for victory, but for the opportunity to leave a lasting impression on the world of motorsport.”


Joseph’s meticulously tuned mark 7 Ford Fiesta ST 180, boosted to deliver 240bhp, will proudly display Delphi’s vibrant livery, complementing his Delphi branded race suit.


“The new Delphi livery looks brilliant, the car is really going to stand out on the track,” said Joseph. “It means the pressure’s on to deliver results, but I’ve got a good feeling about this year.”


The BRSCC AIRTEC Motor Sport Fiesta ST240 Championship operates under a unified, one-make class system featuring the Mk7 Ford Fiesta ST180, affectionately dubbed the ST240 for its boosted power reaching 240bhp. Each vehicle is equipped with specialised AST suspension, Goodyear slick and wet tires, and EBC brakes, alongside a set of mandatory components ensuring standardisation across all cars.


The collaboration between Delphi and Joseph promises an exciting season ahead, with the first round of the championship kicking off at Brands Hatch on April 13th and 14th.


“We are proud to sponsor Joseph and support his aspirations in racing,” said Raj Sangha, UK Marketing Manager at Delphi. “The BRSCC AIRTEC Motorsport Fiesta ST240 Championship is an excellent platform for young drivers, many of whom go on to reach major national series such as the British Touring Car Championship, TCR UK Touring Car Championship and British GT Championship. With Joseph’s natural talent, the UK can expect to see big things from our rising star.”
