BUILDER Matt Walters hopes to find the winning formula thanks to a helping hand from his employer.

Matt, who works as a site manager on The Wickets development in Rotherham for Taylor Wimpey, is a passionate participant in the Monoposto Racing Club.

The club meets about eight times a year, with drivers racing in single-seater cars.

Matt said: “I’m a bit of a novice as this is my first year, but so far I’ve taken part in two races, both of which have been sponsored by Taylor Wimpey.

“My car is 20 years old and I’ve pretty much rebuilt it from scratch, so for Taylor Wimpey to back me financially has been crucial. The firm has been so supportive. Everyone has really taken an interest and it’s definitely paying off as I’m already eighth in the championship.”
