George Grant and the Mission Motorsport team will continue raising awareness for the racing team set up for ex-forces personnel as they hit Anglesey this weekend.
Racing in the MaX5 Championship, Grant will hope to continue the team’s strong run of form after starting strongly in the all Mazda championship when it kicked off at Donington Park in March.
“We enjoyed a successful test at Brands Hatch recently, which was extremely constructive,” said Grant. “Major Jim Cameron and former British Touring Car Championship driver David Brodie instructed me on how to improve various aspects of my driving – before England Rugby Union star Chris Ashton stopped by for some pointers – so overall it was a positive day’s work!
“We made several changes and adjusted the set-up increasingly to my liking, which has given me a much better feeling heading to Anglesey. Championship leader Jonathan Cryer has kindly given me some tips which I hope to put to good use on Saturday and Sunday.”
Alongside George Grant showing the importance of Mission Motorsport on the track, the team’s Development Manager James Earp will be promoting the “Race of Remembrance”. The race is an eight hour endurance race held at the Welsh circuit on the same weekend as Remembrance Sunday with the aim of the race to serve as an automotive memorial to the serviceman who have fought – and some sadly died – in protection of Great Britain.
