The British Motorsports Marshals Club (BMMC) are pleased to announce that their charity partner for 2024 will be Mission Motorsport.
Mission Motorsport, the Forces’ Motorsport Charity, whose motto is “Race Retrain Recover” is MoD’s competent authority for motor sport as a recovery activity and is a Royal Foundation (the charitable trust of the Prince and Princess of Wales) and Endeavour Fund supported initiative.
The charity’s dedicated career managers have placed more than 200 Wounded, Injured and Sick service leavers into employment since the inaugural Invictus Games in September 2014. Over 2000 veterans have found work through the charity’s programs.
A Service Charity and a member of the Confederation of Service Charities, Mission Motorsport has an award-winning collaborative model of working with government and the other service charities. It is funded by the Government’s Positive Pathways program, The Soldiers’ Charity (the Army Benevolent Fund), the Forces’ Trust and the Greenwich Hospital as well as by industry partners and independent fundraising.
Mission Motorsport are the organisation behind the annual Race of Remembrance event, held at Trac Mon Anglesey. Now in its ninth year, the 12-hour race runs through the night over two days and has grown beyond anybody’s wildest imaginations with a starting grid double the size of the first event.
As the event has evolved, becoming bigger and better, the profoundly moving and poignanService of Remembrance remains at the heart of the event. This year nearly 150 marshals supported this fantastic event.
BMMC Chair Nadine Lewis said “BMMC are proud to be supporting Mission Motorsport and look forward to raising funds at events in 2024.”
Mission Motorsport COO Andy Brown said, “As the Forces’ Motorsport Charity supporting service leavers, veterans and their families, and their transition into civilian life, we are forever grateful for the support of the wider community and organisations such as the British Motorsports Marshals Club. We simply wouldn’t be able to do what we do for our Armed Forces community without it and we are honoured to be chosen as BMMC’s charity of the year”.
