The Pizza Company driver Sandy Nicholas Stuvik won the 2010 Asian Formula Renault Championship, becoming the first Thai driver to ever win that championship.
In 2011, Sandy is booked to compete in the European Formula Renault series, as part of the process of climbing the ladder to F1. Paul Kenny, CEO of Minor Food Group and himself an accomplished motor racer, stated that the young promising Thai driver, who The Pizza Company has been sponsoring since he was only six years old, will continue to have his career fostered by the Pizza Company.

In 2010, Sandy won the Asian Formula Renault Championship at China’s Zuhai International Circuit at the age of only 15 – being the youngest racer to ever win the championship, and the first Thai National to win the title. Sandy was last year coached by former F3 Champion Philippe Descombes, and this year Sandy is getting ready and gearing up to compete in 2011 Formula Renault Eurocup, in which he is also expected to have great results.
Another Thai sportsman to be assisted by the Pizza Company is Ratthapark (Feem) Wilairot who is another talent who will be supported in the World Motorcycle Grand Prix for the 600 cc Moto2 division.
Apart from his managerial responsibility, Paul Kenny is also competing as one of the drivers in the Race Team in the Honda Racing Festival 2011, alongside three other experienced racers; Thomas Raldorf, Tony Percy and new driver for the team, Akihiro Asai.
John Heinecke, Vice President Sizzler China and Thailand, and Burger King Thailand, will collaborate with Paul in the RAAT Thailand Endurance Championship 2011.
