#RacingforHeroes Limited To One Car For Brands Hatch Opener

1 Mins read

#RacingforHeroes will be fielding just a single entry at Brands Hatch this weekend for the opening rounds of the 2015 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship and its support series.

The charity scheme initially announced plans to field five drivers across five different championships on the BTCC package this season, but funding issues have forced them to delay most of their entries.

That leaves Josh Cook as their sole representative at present, the reigning Renault UK Clio Cup vice-champion campaigning a Power Maxed Racing Chevrolet Cruze in the BTCC itself.

We are continuing to finalise sponsorship deals at present,” said #RacingforHeroes founder Peter Thorpe.

“This has taken longer than anticipated due to the late launch of the project, marketing budget sign off dates and the lack of time for our partners to develop their plans.”

#RacingforHeroes was launched in December with the aims of raising funds and awareness for the Help for Heroes charity, as well as providing opportunities in motorsport for military veterans.

Zac Chapman (Ginetta GT4 Supercup), Jessica Hawkins (MSA Formula), Tom Butler (Renault UK Clio Cup) and Josh Files (Porsche Carrera Cup GB) are the drivers missing out at present, but Thorpe is confident they will all make it on track in #RacingforHeroes colours this year.

I believe that we can field other #RacingforHeroes drivers during the season. This is of course dependent on successful discussions with our pipelined sponsor negotiations,” Thorpe added.
