Footman James announced as sponsors of Lotus Cup & Lotus Elise Trophy for 2017


Footman James

Specialist insurance broker Footman James will sponsor the 2017 MSA Lotus Cup Championship and Lotus Elise Trophy Championship as the series preferred insurance provider.

Footman James was founded in 1983 to establish a professional insurance broking service for the specialist vehicle market.  With Motorsport being one of these niche markets and the integration of the Competition Car Insurance brand into Footman James as part of the Towergate Group, the company thought it was a great fit to continue the partnership with the premier club race championship in the UK.

The specialist broker has signed an agreement with the Lotus race series and will be the preferred insurance provider for drivers and teams with a service that will extend beyond the track as they also provide insurance solutions for classic and prestigious vehicle owners and collectors as well as motor traders.

30 years after their foundation Footman James is proud of a heritage based on successful relationships with vintage and classic vehicle enthusiasts and clubs providing both classic car insurance and classic bike insurance solutions. With many of the Lotus race drivers and supporters also being keen classic enthusiasts as well as many involved in the motor trade and supporting industries there is a great natural fit for business development for Footman James and the provision of a one stop specialist insurance service for Lotus drivers and supporters.

  • A customer base close to100,000 policyholders
  • Operate a customer service centre of well over 100 enthusiastic team members

All customers benefit from a level of personal service you would expect from a specialist insurance broker and again in 2016 Footman James was awarded the Feefo Gold Trusted Merchant status for consistent high levels of service.

Footman James’ Director David Bond said ‘Since taking over the responsibility of the Competition Car Insurance brand we were keen to keep continuity and our relationships with the core market. Continuing with the series sponsorship was important to us and we are very much looking forward to the season ahead and building closer links with all those involved. As Footman James we are a leading brand within the classic and prestigious vehicle market and we are keen to extend this within the motorsport arena by providing insurance solutions that allow owners to enjoy their passion’.
