From the CEO
"Mission Motorsport, The Forces’ Motorsport Charity has been proud to have been supported by Richard. He recognised the challenges that servicemen and women face when leaving the Forces, and his enthusiasm and commitment in fund raising has been hugely appreciated by all – he, and the community that he inspired, have really made a difference."
Mission Motorsport is run by veterans, serving officers and motorsport professionals. We are appointed as the Combined Services’ official providers of adaptive motorsport, seeking wherever possible to merge the activities of the disabled and those in need with able bodied servicemen and women.
Appointed by the British Army Motorsport Association, and operating in direct support of the Defence Recovery Capability, Mission Motorsport provides respite, rehabilitation, recreational opportunities and training to those affected by military operations within the framework of Motorsport.
Our output is in three main areas, Experience, Competition and Vocation. From a first hand, front seat, white knuckle introduction to an exciting sport, through to the preparation, development, coaching, teamwork and participation involved in competition, along with vocational training and work placements with major motor manufacturers and race teams.
