bmi regional unveiled as official airline of Murphy Prototypes Team at Le Mans

bmi regional, the UK’s most punctual scheduled airline, will spend the week at Le Mans this year with tipped-for-the-top-spot endurance racing team, Murphy Prototypes. As the team’s official airline, the bmi regional logo will adorn the Murphy Prototype car at 24 Hours at Le Mans, the world’s oldest endurance racing event, held 22-23 June in France.

The sponsorship deal aligns the airline with one of the strongest teams at this year’s 24 Hours at Le Mans. Fighting for podium spot is the team boasting a driver line-up of New Zealander Brendon Hartley, endurance sports car campaigner, Mark Patterson and former F1 driver, Karun Chandhok. Last year, Murphy Prototypes led the LMP2 class for five hours, while Chandhok was placed sixth overall. Hopes are high for further success this year.

Colin Lewis, Director of Marketing bmi regional said: “The eyes of the world are on the iconic La Sarthe circuit and our presence there, as a sponsor of Murphy Prototypes, enables us to engage with global, European and British business decision-makers. In addition to the thrill of the race, Le Mans offers us the opportunity to reach business travellers from across Europe as we mark our first anniversary as an independent airline.”

Greg Murphy, founder and team principal of Murphy Prototypes, said: “We’re delighted to work with bmi regional, an independent airline at the top of its game that focuses on success and attention to detail. That motivation is something we share as we head on to the circuit and bid for a spot alongside the great names of racing history. It will be great to have them as our ‘wingmen’ at Le Mans.”
