Optimising IT will be sponsoring the 7 Race Series (7RS) for 2023 and will be working with 7 Race Series to offset some of the carbon emissions too.
Optimising IT has been involved with the 7 Race Series for a number of years as Gary Smith, Founder of Optimising IT is a regular competitor (and reigning 1600 Champion).
As a recently certified B Corporation it was important for us to ensure that we were doing our bit for the environment, while support the racing series.

So, what is carbon offsetting? An offset is an investment in projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions. It is a purchasable good used by individuals, organisations and governments to compensate for the emissions they create.
Together with 7 Race Series we will reduce all unavoidable emissions on behalf of the drivers, teams and all 7RS members with our 7 Race Series forest. You can find out more about our offsetting journey with 7 Race Series here.

Sean Bicknell from McMillan Motorsport said: “It’s great to have Gary and the Optimising IT brand back in the 7 Race Series for another year. We all love our motorsport, but in this day and age we have to be aware of any damage we may be causing to our environment. Working with Optimising IT on being able to start reducing the carbon that we produce at our events, hopefully shows we are responsible for our actions and are contributing to a sustainable future for motorsport. And who doesn’t love the idea of a 7 Race Series forest!”

Gary Smith added: “We’re looking forward to working more closely with the 7 Race Series this year especially with their increased growth in audience, participation and coverage, in addition to supporting them with their carbon offsetting goals.”
