“I have been very impressed with Declan since I first met him. Not just as a young driver with obvious talent, but more so as a bright young man who has set a goal to achieve and no doubt will. Each year he has improved his craft, and by winning the last karting round at Ellough provided an exclamation mark to a very good year. Declan is a personable, serious racer – two qualities that are critical for success on and off the circuit.”

“Chicago-Soft, Ltd is a proud sponsor of Declan Jones. He is a great, young and up-coming racing driver. Declan has always impressed us with his hard work and dedication. Although he is a young man, who drives to win, he is more than that. He is a gentleman in training.”

Peter J. McLaughlin

Chairman, Chicago-Soft Ltd

“Declan was one of the most consistent Junior Rotax Drivers in Formula Kart Stars in 2010 and his victory in the last round of the championship was a fitting end to his karting career. He and his team worked hard all season and it was great to see their determination rewarded in what was a really high pressured race. I have always been impressed with how Declan handles himself out of the kart as well as in it. He is a real character in the paddock and fierce competition on track.”

Henry Beaudette

Formula Kart Stars Track Commentator

“Having known Declan since the age of 8 and being aware of his talent behind the wheel of a kart and latterly a car, The London Perfume Company were keen to back a young up and coming driver during 2012. We are continuing that backing through his move in 2013 to the British GT Championship, where based on his previous results we are certain he will soon make his name as one of the UK’s top young GT drivers. Declan proved in 2012 not only his prowess behind the wheel but also his professional and likeable attitude to promoting a sponsors brand both on and off the track. Our involvement with Declan has been a very worthwhile investment and exposed a new brand to a diverse demographic. We are looking forward to expanding on last year’s success with Declan and are glad he has maintained his association with The London Perfume Company and look forward to developing our brands together this season.”

“I have known Declan since 2010. We met at a Formula Kart Stars race weekend, where I immediately realised he had the mentality and ability to perform at a high level of motorsport. I have been Declan’s driver coach throughout his sports car career, and have been impressed with his ability to take on information. The feedback he is able to give to his race engineers and myself is of a very high standard, which in turn made it very easy to work with Declan, and help him reach the front of the field in sports car racing.

British GT Champion and Professional Driver Coach

“It has been a privilege to see Declan develop through the Ginetta motorsport career ladder. He has grown from a quick kid into a fast, safe and mature sports car driver. Hi is not only quick but easy on the car and has good mechanical feedback from his knowledge of cars and their set up. It has been a pleasure to be associated with Declan and his family; hopefully he will drive a Ginetta at Le Mans one day.”
