ACL Hire sponsor fearless fourteen-year-old racer

Fourteen-year-old Taylor Borthwick (right), West Lothian’s tenacious teenage racer, is preparing for another season disrupting the status quo and taking down the boys on the National MiniStox circuit, thanks to sponsorship from ACL Hire Limited, part of Avis Budget Group.
After becoming the only girl to ever win the Scottish Championship in 2014, an accolade yet to be beaten, Taylor’s passion for petrol has only grown. At the age of 11 she wanted to move up a class and race a Mini Stock car in the male-dominated national competitions. After some convincing, Dad Stuart bought Taylor her first Mini Stock racer and so began their journey up and down the UK racing almost every weekend between March and November.
James Harris, Co-Founder of ACL Hire Limited, says: “We are honoured to sponsor Taylor, she is a promising talent in UK motorsport and we are really enjoying watching her development. Her tenacity in a male-dominated environment, enthusiasm and the importance she puts on family define her character. We are excited to watch Taylor’s progress over the coming season and further into the future.”
Taylor Borthwick said: “I am very grateful to be able to travel the country, racing in competitions as far away as St Day in Cornwall. Sponsorship from ACL enables me to buy vital equipment such as harnesses, safety helmets and neck braces, the support from ACL enables us to get race-ready each week.”
Taylor has had a flying start to the season, leading the national points. She is preparing for her first ever race on shale at the Northampton International Raceway on 25th May.
