1992 British Touring Car champion started his association with Nationwide in 2007 with a double win and went on to claim two Porsche Carrera Cup titles in orange, blue and white liveried car.
BRDC Rising Star and Porsche Scholarship finalist Kieran Vernon stepped into Tim Harvey's driving seat for the second half of the 2011 season.
Double Porsche Carrera Cup champion and record breaker Dan has race with Nationwide since 2015 and will continue to carry Nationwide logos on his car in 2017.
Teamwork is at the heart of everything we do at Nationwide. It’s this focus on ‘TEAM’ that really attracts us to motor racing.
In the bodyshop, it takes great individual skill and craftsmanship to repair vehicles, but it needs excellent communication and access to the latest repair technology to complete work to the highest standard and ensure customers are re-united with their vehicles in the shortest possible time.
Similarly, although there’s only one driver behind the wheel of the racing car, winning requires the strength of a whole factory, pit lane and logistics team, combining all their individual skills and effort.
This is now our eighth year of motor racing sponsorship. It began with sponsoring ‘Touring Car legend’ Tim Harvey during his Porsche Carrera Cup GB championship winning seasons and continues now with double- Porsche champion Dan Cammish this season.
Apart from sharing the values of teamwork, there’s something else we really enjoy about motorsport: everyone at Nationwide can get involved! Each year we ask our team members to help to choose our sponsorship livery and we all follow Dan’s progress at every race. We also make tickets available so that everyone can come along with their friends and family and watch Dan race. We never forget that customers are part of our wider team and we extend the invitation to them and we’re delighted that many of them join us at our race weekends.
Whether on the racing circuit or at work, teamwork is key to any success. It is why ‘One Nationwide, One Team’ will always be our ethos.
"We go racing because it showcases our dedication to teamwork."
Entering its fifteenth year in 2017, the Porsche Carrera Cup GB is at the very pinnacle of British motor racing and a firm fixture in every motorsport enthusiast’s diary. Identical cars put driver skill in the spotlight and a combination of close, thrilling racing and first class facilities for teams and drivers is a big draw.
The championship has proved itself as a springboard for drivers seeking different careers and accomplishments within the motorsport arena. Nick Tandy, the first British driver to win Le Mans in a Porsche since Allan McNish in 1998, made his debut at the Porsche Carrera Cup GB in 2008. After winning the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland in 2011 and the prestigious Porsche Cup in 2012 as the best private Porsche driver worldwide in a 911, he became a works driver and progressed through the Porsche racing series. His impressive achievements earned him a seat in the third entry for the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2015 where he went on to win the toughest car race in the world.
Many drivers seeking a career as a professional sports and GT racer have used the Carrera Cup as a launch pad. Former Porsche Carrera Cup GB champions Richard Westbrook, Michael Meadows and Damien Faulkner have built careers as professional racers and 2012 Carrera Cup GB runner-up Ben Barker raced a Porsche 911 RSR in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2016.
