Driver Javier Morcillo is leading a fundraising campaign for a Spanish cancer support charity using a chequered flag on the Mosler he will drive at the Britcar 24 Hours at Silverstone (September 30-October 2).
All the money raised will go to ASION, a charity that provides care and support for children suffering from cancer and their families. The organisation supports several projects including assistance with transport needs and cost, physiotherapy and respite care.
Donations can be made through www.asion.org, with anyone making donations entitled to a square on the chequered flag motif that will adorn the Mosler.
Morcillo previously helped raise funds for ASION in 2009 while racing in Spain.
Since then Morcillo has raced in the Britcar GT Championship – now the MSA British Endurance Championship – and will compete in the 24 Hours alongside regular teammate, and fellow Spaniard Manuel Cintrano as well as newly crowned class champions Calum Lockie and Paul White. The quartet are entered under the Strata 21 name usually used by Lockie and White.
Last year, when driving with Cintrano, Jan Persson, Rod Barrett and Jay Shepherd, Morcillo finished third overall in the 24 Hours
