These terms and conditions, along with the General Site Terms & Conditions, form the basis on which you can use the Supplier Directory and project brief feature on this website. Please read them carefully as they contain important information.

Patron Motorsport Limited’s Supplier Finder system allows racing drivers, motorsport teams, companies and professionals (‘the Buyer’) to source quotations or expressions of interest from professionals and businesses (‘the Seller’) to provide goods or services by setting out specific requirements as set out within a project brief. The Seller is able to monitor the Project Briefs archive for work opportunities and advertise their services through a dedicated profile page in our Supplier Directory. All users of the website, registered and unregistered, are free, without obligation or charge from Patron Motorsport Limited, to search the Supplier Directory and view the Project Brief’s archive. Only Sellers will be able to access a Buyer’s contact information for a Project Brief to provide a quotation or expression of interest.
