TSP Engineering are ecstatic to announce the sponsorship of ‘British Youth Championship Rider 2018’ Corban Pavitt from Maryport in his fifth year of Speedway. The sponsorship is part of TSP Engineering’s ongoing commitment to supporting and recognising talent within. Corban’s Grandad, Martin Short, has worked for TSP Engineering for 15 years as a Team Leader in the Refurbishment Department.

The CEO of TSP Engineering, John Coughlan, stated: “We are thrilled to welcome Corban to the ever-growing TSP Engineering family and look forward to supporting him in this truly exciting time in his sporting journey. It’s a great honour for TSP Engineering to get the opportunity to contribute to a sport which has such a strong significance in the local community, whilst supporting a young talented individual who has the shared vision of ambition and achievement”.

Corban has been interested in Speedway from an early age after frequently going to watch his local team, the Workington Comets. At the age of 12 he swapped watching from the stands to racing on the tracks for the first time and has never looked back. Corban has taken part and placed in many competitions and events over the past few years from GB Young Lions, to the Northern Junior League. At the young age of 16, Corban spends most of his weekends travelling across the UK to train or compete – his hard work, dedication and commitment is inspiring and refreshing to see.

Corban Pavitt, who has recently signed to represent the Stoke ‘Potters’ explains, “The Sponsorship received is fantastic and helps me keep my bikes running to a high standard. It supports general maintenance costs like tyres, fuel, oil and chains which are used on a regular basis during races and throughout the season. Without help like this form TSP Engineering it would be difficult to race at this level”.

Not only does Corban spend his time training and competing, he is also part of the No Limits Elite Training Programme which is supported by ATPI. This programme aims to find the balance between track days and health and fitness. The sporting world can be demanding therefore, it’s important there is an understanding of wellbeing and the positive impacts a healthy lifestyle can have. This has led to visits to Loughborough University for hydration and body fat testing along with other nutritional advice.

Corban’s father, Andrew Pavitt, adds, “The Sponsorship provided by TSP Engineering gives Corban a great opportunity to remain competitive and be the best he can be. Keeping Corban safe on track is a key priority and support like this allows him to buy the right equipment needed to protect himself”.

TSP Engineering are an SME therefore, we understand more than most the importance of support. For this reason, along with his ability, passion and skill we jumped at the opportunity to support and encourage Corban for the foreseeable future. We are immensely proud to sponsor Corban, helping him strive in something he loves.
