In the build up to Your Race of Remembrance, Mission Motorsport Founder James Cameron joined Club members for a presentation on the history and importance of the Forces’ Motorsport Charity.
After serving in the Army for 17 years, James recognised that motorsport could be a powerful tool in rehabilitating injured service men and women, but proper guidance was needed to ensure any activities weren’t detrimental to their recovery.
To date, over 2,000 wounded, injured or sick soldiers, sailors and airmen through their program and you’ll see some of the success stories in this video.
In two week’s time, Mission Motorsport will be hosting #YourRoR, a new initiative to engage and inspire beneficiaries and supporters over the Remembrance weekend.
It replaces the charity’s annual Race of Remembrance (RoR), a 12-hour endurance race that has been cancelled owing to Covid-19 restrictions, costing the charity £50,000 in lost output for beneficiaries and in fundraising. #YourRoR keeps the spirit of the race alive, giving people a means to engage, fundraise and, most importantly, enable the community to safely come together online for a very special pitlane remembrance service, or three.
For this year’s event, Mission Motorsport is asking supporters to take on challenges or activities that will help the charity to raise funds and commemorate the weekend in their own special way. With a whole host of supporters already signed up to get involved, including Jason Fox presenter of ‘SAS Who Dares Wins’ who was due to race in this year’s event, #YourRoR looks set to encapsulate the spirit of Race of Remembrance - despite Covid-19.
