Cameron Bell forges ahead in motorsport, attracting sponsorship from Nottingham business, Page Kirk accountants.

It’s never too late to pursue your passion in life. That’s the message from Nottingham man Cameron Bell, who at the age of 31 is now an active participant in the 750 Motor Club Toyota MR2 Championship.

The automotive design engineer, originally from South Yorkshire, has built his own car and is now testing himself against rivals across 16 rounds at eight different circuits in the UK.

Cameron’s first two outings of the season were at Donington Park, south-west of Nottingham, and at the home of UK motorsport, Silverstone, on the national layout. The ambitious racer hopes to finish in the championship’s Top 15, while soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the ride. His exploits have attracted the attention of leading Nottingham accountancy firm Page Kirk, which is backing Cameron with sponsorship.

“Racing is something I’ve always wanted to have a go at, especially growing up watching motorsport icons like Mika Hakkinen, Colin McRae and Alain Menu,” reveals Cameron. “I found a championship I wanted to enter, then bought a car suitable and over months built it in to a race car in my home garage. During that time, I also acquired my race licence. It’s difficult to explain how I feel when I’m in the car, helmet on, approaching a corner at high speed with cars all around you trying to get the best position on track. I guess it’s the adrenalin, excitement and coordination skill that attracts me to racing the most.”

The new sponsorship arrangement allows Cameron to continue to make approved modifications to his car; a 2001 two-seater Toyota MR2 Roadster, with 1800cc mid-engine. It also helps to cover some of the other inevitable costs associated with pursuing his passion.

James Haywood, Partner at Page Kirk, the leading independent accountancy firm in the East Midlands, commented:

“We are delighted to be sponsoring Cameron for this year’s Toyota MR2 championship. Myself and my fellow partners have a keen interest in motorsport, and we saw this as a perfect opportunity to enter the industry, get the Page Kirk name even better known through a new medium. With Cameron also becoming a Club Racing UK ambassador this year, it was an easy decision to make.”
