Rising Star Oscar Races Ahead Thanks To Intelect Sponsorship

Local youngster, Oscar Warr is a keen racing enthusiast, currently competing in the Junior Rotax category in the Teesside NRG Sprint Series. Managed by the Teesside Karting Academy, he regularly spends his time down at their track in Middlesbrough, where he can be found carrying out maintenance on his kart, or taking it out for a few practice laps.

In 2023, Oscar completed his first full year of competing, achieving over nine trophies in total, one of which saw him come first place in a race in September. Overall, he finished third in the NRG Sprint Championship, a fantastic achievement for someone so new to the sport.

Looking towards the 2024 season, Oscar is keen to continue building on his progress, and thanks to an influx of recent sponsorships, including local engineering company, Intelect, he’s in good stead for a positive start.

Intelect’s Project Manager, Gary Doyle and Business Operations Manager, Lily Brothwood visited Oscar down at the Tees Karting track.


When speaking to Oscar about the impact the sponsorship will have for the upcoming season, as well as his aspirations for the future, he said, “I am so pleased Intelect have sponsored my 2024 season, it means a lot to me and my family. I know that we will jointly gain a lot from this partnership. My dream is to be a touring car driver, or to work within a large racing team. Competitive karting is my current passion and it will place me on the right track for my future goals.’

Senior Project Engineer, Gary Doyle, who was the main driver for Intelect getting behind Oscar this season said, “At Intelect we’re really keen to support and nurture young talent in our local area, and our sponsorship commitments are no exception to this.

“We’re delighted to be sponsoring Oscar on his racing journey and we’re really looking forward to watching him progress throughout the course of the season and beyond”.
