Director - Chris Jewell 

Velocity Management Group Pty Ltd has existed since 1995, when owner and Company Director, Chris Jewell embarked on a program to provide professional sports and career management to young and aspiring motor racing stars. Having spent ten years working in senior marketing and sponsorship for BOC Gases, Chris decided to combine his “passion with the profession” and created his own sponsorship and management company. 

His first client was Jason Bright, who went on to race professionally in the United States of America after winning the 1995 Australian Formula Ford Championship. Bright returned to Australia and went on to win the prestigious 1998 Bathurst 1000 event and currently contests the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship as one of the most-sponsored and recognisable drivers in the category.
Chris has been involved with motor racing since he was fourteen and worked with many teams to understand the vital dynamics of what has now become an extremely attractive sporting pursuit. A former racer himself, he has competed in Karting, Super Karting and Formula Ford. A four-year stint as General Manager of Britek Motorsport was preceded by a two-year relationship with both IMG (International Management Group), Greg Murphy and Tasman Motorsport. 

Chris held the role of V8 Supercar Championship Commentator between 2009 and 2013, commentated the NZ V8 SuperTourer Series for TV3 and writes specialist motorsport articles for selected publications. Chris is also an accomplished and popular MC / corporate host and specialist charity auctioneer.
