Ideas and innovations from RML AD Group


RML AD Group has been supported by a broad range of corporate sponsors and technical partners since it entered sportscar racing in 2003. Most of the original organisations have remained with the team ever since, and these include several divisions of AD Group, for whom Mike Newton is CEO.

As one of the fastest growing companies in the video surveillance and technology sector, market exposure has been an important factor in the company's development and success. Motorsport sponsorship forms a significant proportion of AD Group's promotional budget, yet the Board's decision-makers view trackside hospitality and racecar branding as a highly rewarding and profitable exercise. To understand a little more of AD Group's approach to sponsorship and product placement, view this page dedicated to Hospitality, Networking and Product Demonstration.

AD Group was formed in 1997. AD’s primary objective is to develop and bring to market new CCTV technologies. One of the first companies to embrace the concept of video over IP (Internet Protocol), AD's interests now include CCTV for aircraft, transport, smoke detection, together with camera technology and digital video recorders and multiplexers.
