- THG selects Right Formula to activate its first-ever sports sponsorship within Formula 1
- Right Formula will deploy a range of services to deliver the programme, including strategy, communications, digital, hospitality & events
- The multi-year agreement was launched at the 2023 Austin Grand Prix
THG has selected global sports marketing agency Right Formula to activate the brand’s first-ever multi-faceted sports sponsorship, with Williams Racing in Formula 1.
THG is a vertically integrated, digital-first consumer brands group, retailing its own brands in beauty and nutrition, plus third-party brands, via its complete commerce solution, Ingenuity, to an online and global customer base.
THG has partnered with Williams Racing to embody the shared DNA of two dynamic British organisations, each boasting a legacy of building leading global brands in their respective domains and delivering elite performance through data-driven technology and innovation.
Right Formula won a competitive pitch to activate the Group’s multi-year agreement, which sees THG become Williams Racing’s Official Partner across Nutrition, Technology & Ecommerce and Sustainability. Right Formula will provide a 360-degree service to maximise the launch and increase the effectiveness of its partnership through strategy, communications, hospitality and event activation.
The partnership was officially launched ahead of the 2023 Austin Grand Prix with the support of Right Formula who delivered a Monster Truck in a one-off Williams Racing and THG livery. Williams Racing drivers, Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant, were challenged to find their best American ride and bring it to the track to launch the partnership. Arriving in a Williams Racing, Myprotein and Ingenuity Commerce-branded Monster Truck, Logan came out on top.
Robin Fenwick, CEO and Founder of Right Formula, said: “We are excited to be working with THG to activate its innovative partnership with Williams Racing that will see them promote three businesses through one team: Myprotein, Ingenuity and THG Eco. Right Formula’s reputation is built on working with major brands like THG as they enter and navigate the sports sponsorship arena. Today’s Formula 1 audience is younger and more digitally engaged than ever before, making it an exciting time for THG to get involved.”
“Right Formula’s experience in Formula 1, industry relationships and digital expertise makes it the perfect partner to activate our partnership with Williams Racing”, said Steven Whitehead, Group Commercial Director at THG. “The team at Right Formula have already acted as invaluable partners as we’ve worked together to launch this exciting partnership. We look forward to using all their services to bring this to life over the next few years.”
