Hi from London UK and whats with Pentax Marketing if there is such as thing

I race a car in a very prestigious event the Goodwood members Meeting here in UK.
Goodwood famous for the Festival of Speed and the Revival.
The car is a replica of the 1981 car raced by Tom Walkinshaw and Win Percy among others

Despite numerous attempts to make contact the Marketting people in Ricoh/Pentax are just not interested.
This appears also to be inline with they invisibility in the trade press.

Anyone know why?

Welcome to the forums - good to have you with us.

Sorry to hear you haven't had any luck with Ricoh / Pentax's marketing people. In all honesty, most larger companies have very-well-defined strategies for marketing and related spending, and if your channel isn't one they're interested in or have budget set aside for, it can be almost impossible to make in-roads. Keep trying, though, and good luck

Welcome to the forum, I think at times, that sites like this are in fact the marketing machinery for some of these companies.
