Donington Park will be hosting a fourth Troops Trackday for serving and veteran military personnel, supported by Mission Motorsport, The Forces' Motorsport Charity this Friday (11 December).
The event is open to all wounded, injured and sick serving and veteran personnel, as well as partners and carers. They will be able to get behind the wheel of a variety of cars provided by Mission Motorsport and a selection of other partners, around the iconic Donington Park circuit.
Mission Motorsport aid in the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by military operations by providing opportunities through motorsport. Former wounded soldiers and beneficiaries of Mission Motorsport, who are now in employment with companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, will be present on the day. The now famous Poppy Car, built designed and wrapped by Mission Motorsport beneficiaries, which now features as a downloadable race car in the Xbox game Forza 6, will also be at the circuit.
Adam Marchant-Wincott, Mission Motorsport Head of Vocation and Training commented: “We are hugely grateful to Donington Park for supporting this event.
“Ideally situated, a day out on a track such as the iconic Donington Park, really lifts the spirits of our wounded, injured and sick who are still in recovery or learning to cope with their issues”.
Donington Park Sporting Director Bob Adams added: “We are delighted to be supporting the Mission Motorsport charity, and holding another trackday for the troops. It’s always an honour to welcome our armed forces to Donington Park, and I’m sure they will have a fantastic day on track!”
