BWT Racing Point

MILAN – BWT Racing Point has proudly pledged its support to the BWT b.Water Mission – providing sustainable, accountable and maintainable water systems in Gambia. The Silverstone based F1 Team is fighting for more than just Championship points – it is on a mission to help communities across Gambia have clean, safe drinking water.

Throughout the 2020 Formula 1 season, BWT will build a well in the villages of Gambia for every time its pilots achieve a top 10 race finish.

BWT Racing Point on an Important Mission

The BWT b.Water Mission – a project of the AQA Pearls Foundation by BWT – is a cause close to the heart of BWT CEO Andreas Weißenbacher, with valuable work having already been underway over the past two years.

Having already teamed up with its brand ambassadors in ski jumping through the BWT Distance Award, Racing Point becomes the latest BWT partner to use sporting performance as a platform to contribute to the project.

The goal of the initiative is to build a total of 10,000 BWT b.Water Mission wells in the next seven years ensuring that nobody in Gambia is forced to walk more than 150 metres to find clean, safe drinking water.

Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal BWT Racing Point F1 Team: “One of the key strengths of our partnership with BWT is a shared commitment to using our expertise and the global platform of sport to drive real progress in global sustainability projects.

“BWT are already supporting the team in our push to cut down on single-use plastics in the Formula 1 paddock – and with the b.Water Mission, we now have an opportunity to make an impact beyond the confines of the racetrack. As we make our long-awaited return to racing in Austria, we now have an even greater incentive to push for strong results and play our part in this fantastic initiative.”
