Join Olympus at the British Touring Car Championship

Apply for your chance to shoot with the British Touring Car Championship this summer with Olympus

Olympus has announced its sponsorship of Power Maxed Racing team in this year’s British Touring Car Championship and is offering the photographers the chance to try out the new OM-D E-M1X at various events across the UK.

Georgina Pavelin, Olympus marketing manager, says: “We are keen to support photographers in their journey and the races provide an ideal opportunity to try new kit, learn from the experts, develop your portfolio and talk to our team. Whether learning more from your Olympus kit or trying the OM-D products for the first time, our sponsorship opens up new opportunities to capture some unique content and test the product features. PMR provide the perfect opportunity to support events across the UK and a high-profile platform to celebrate our 100th birthday. We are very proud to see our branding flying round with such a great team.”

PMR team principal, Adam Weaver, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Olympus to join us in our quest for BTCC honours. At PMR we use engineering and technology to achieve our on-track success and in Olympus we have a partner that is at the very forefront of technology and performance across its range of cameras. The BTCC offers a visual spectacle that is unrivalled within UK sport and we have no doubt that the Olympus brand on the Power Maxed Racing Astras will be captured in sharp focus through the nationwide Be an Olympus Pro for the Day photographic competition.”
